Has anyone dealt with Acoustic Corner in Black Mtn NC and would be willing to share feedback with me?

If you prefer, Private BHO Message me.

Thank you.

I haven't done business with them, but I just looked at their website. My impressions:

Their descriptions seem to be accurate. They do offer a standard return policy.

Some of their prices appear to be well within market standards. Others, such as those on old Gibson mandolins, appear to me to be high for the condition of the instruments.

At first glance, they seem to be fine for buyers who are up-to-date on current market values.

Perhaps someone else will be able to comment on the manner and quality of their service.
A phone call wouldn't hurt. I can often learn a lot about a store from a couple of minutes on the phone with them.

I have visited and it’s a very nice shop. Years ago (15 years?) when I visited the owner gave each of my kids an egg shaker which was very kind. I wouldn’t hesitate to give them my business.

I visited the shop a couple years back. Bought a banjo, had them install capo spikes while my wife and I walked main street. They also gave me a discount. I’d buy from them again whether in person or online.

I visited the store quite a few times over many years. Bought, sold and traded open back banjos there.

All of the banjos on their show floor have always been fine specimens, in excellent to new condition.

They understand the market and price accordingly.

I have never shopped on line with them, always going to their store, so I can only comment on the banjos I put my hands on.

That said, I would not hesitate to shop there again.

I've bought stuff there & had work done under the previous two owners (Fellenbaum & Friddle) and been happy with it. It's a retail store in a tourist area, I wouldn't expect any real bargains. It changed hands again a couple years ago, I haven't been there since that.
