    Lovely , just lovely..... Walter and Christie are both instrument wise and wonderful hosts. I told them up front I couldn't afford to buy a really expensive instrument and was encouraged to play them anyway. What a gift. I can't say enough nice things about this store / venue. I wish I was closer. R/
    I love hanging out with mandolin nerds . . . . . Thanks peeps ...

    Great article, boss. Have to visit next time I get up that way. Planning to leave my wallet locked in the truck, however.

    I was visiting in Nashville this past weekend and having read Scott's article, stopped by Carter's Vintage Guitars, just a stone's throw from the Station Inn. Nice place, very friendly folks. I did step up into the "second floor" room and saw those amazing Loar instruments behind glass. I didn't ask to play one, but my guess is they would have let me. Thanks for the article.

    Three years later, the story is still the same, and the staff is as top-notch as the owners. A buddy and I went to Carter's before and after our week at the Swannanoa Gathering, and had the same experience that UsuallyPickin had. If I lived closer, I'd probably just set up direct deposit.
    still trying to turn dreams into memories

    Too funny (but also brilliant).
    Dear sir, I am terribly sorry, but I fear I must inform you that what you are playing is most certainly not any part of anything.

    Visited Nashville last fall about this time. Spent a few hours at Carter’s. What an amazing place! Highly recommend a visit if you are ever in the area.
