I am about an hour and 45 minutes from Gruhn's in Nashville. Nice shop and friendly people. I especially like it for Martin's because they have a great selection. Other's before have mentioned Carter's in Nashville but I haven't been to it. I also like Allen's Music in Paducah, KY. The owner is real friendly. I went in to buy a cable because I had left mine at home and he gave me a tour of the whole store. He has everything from guitars to a tuba in different rooms. I actually bought a really nice cable and later brought him my old stereo and turntable which he fixed and when I went back to pick it up bought a used Stratocaster.
