CAPOS MUSIC Music Store Reviews

I found Capos through a for sale ad they had on the Hangout and thought I would look them up. I've dealt with other banjo places and really knew nothing about Capos. I already own two nice openback banjos but both were too heavy to keep on my back during all the traveling I do. I looked for a lighter weight instrument and contacted Emory at Capos. They had a deal on a Goodtime openback with a frailing scoop that had guitar style tuners. I do not like them at all, so I sent Emory a set of nice planet tuners I had lying around to install for me. Not only did he do a great job on swapping them out for me but didn't charge to do it. He also installed a couple of spikes and again, no charge. Banjo came today and it looks great. I was never fond of the Goodtime banjos but this has changed my mind. I wouldn't hesitate doing business with them again.

I had a very enjoyable experience with Gill at Capo's Music Store in Virginia. I purchased a banjo from him that was posted in the classifieds section, and everything went very well!

The item was delievered as expected.

I purchased the banjo on a Monday (maybe it was a Tuesday?) and I received it on Friday. 

Gill spent time with me on the phone and developed a relationship, and offered advice on the instrument.

10/10. Looking forward to doing business again!

These folks are located in Abingdon, VA, which is a really cool town in western VA. They get a great rating because I drove an hour each way to leave a really nice banjo for them to sell on consignment, and they sold it. I thought enough of them to leave them one of my good tenor guitars and a rough mountain banjo (which is actually really cool). As for the store, it has a lot of instruments and extras to offer. They had a really fine collection of vintage consignment instruments, which is why I drove so far to work with them. Everyone there is nice as can be, plus they seem to really know their stuff. By the way, they have a nice jam there every Saturday night. I haven't been yet, but I've heard about it, and I hope to go one day soon when my wife and I make a trip to Abingdon to see another play at the Barter Theater, which is great. That's it.

recently purchased a Bishline Rosemary custom from Capos music.The banjo is amazing and the service was second to none.Gill the owner answered all Email questions within a hour.I was concerned about packaging he made sure it would arrive fine.they lined top of banjo with bubble wrapinside of case and packed case in box with bubble wrap and other arrived very fast and in perfect condition I think you could have thrown it from a building and it would have been fine.GREAT new shop opened in 2009 awsome staff.many instruments and parts Highly Recommend this store check them out online.
