With the ever-increasing costs of shipping large and bulky items such as musical instruments, I often get asked by customers if they can visit Carbon Sitars in person to pick up their instruments. To this, I say absolutely! I love having visitors, and many actually wind up staying with us at the house/shop, where we will spend a couple days making tweaks and/or sightseeing. In fact, depending on where you live in the world, it can actually be cheaper to buy round-trip airfare and spend a few days in beautiful Asheville, NC than it is to box the sitar up and ship it by itself. So, if you are interested in seeing some behind-the-scenes stuff while turning your particular project into more of a special experience, do let me know. I love meeting each and every one of you!
