Socially distancing has created a problem for makes me want to get another banjo??
It’s time for a spunover Stewart or similar but I’m fairly novice and have to roll the banjo around in my hands. So, I’ve been compiling a list of brick and mortar stores as well as luthiers and other sellers in the East Tennessee, SW Virginia, and Asheville NC area that I can visit (when we’re able to go back out in the world).
I’m interested to hear if anyone can give me some additions for “The Quest” list.

Bob Smakula, in Elkins, WV, is a bit farther from you. But he often has the kinds of things you’ve indicated are of interest. If that’s the case, after viewing his website and/or talking with him, you might want to check something out. Though longer, it’s a pretty drive, and, in my experience Bob’s a great person with whom to deal. (Standard disclaimer: I’ve no interest or association with Smakula Fretted Instruments, save as a satisfied customer.)

Cedar Mtn. Banjos (Not far from Asheville)

Pisgah Banjos (Asheville)

Neither has a storefront, but may have some stock on hand and I doubt would mind you coming to visit.

Some states are directing closure of non-essential businesses, keep it in mind and check before you head out.
