The "generic looking" (as someone else described on here) guitar tech has done work on a lot of high-end, expensive vintage pieces for me. One of the few people I trust with my guitars, period.

Bill K I have been a loyal Fret Shop customer for over 15 years. During that time, Mark (the owner) has given me the best deals on trade-ins and new and used instruments. One of my best experiences came this year when a high-quality used Mandolin failed structurally due to a design flaw in the first edition of that particular model. When it could not be repaired, Mark and the manufacturer provided me with a brand new (over $2000) Mandolin right off the production floor. New, same model, no design flaw! Kudos also go to Brian Dawson, the repair expert who recognized the original problem and interfaced with the manufacturer to resolve it. Mark and employees like Brian are the reason I am loyal to the Fret Shop for all my guitar, mandolin, banjo, and dobro needs.

The Fret Shop has always been very professional and cozy place, and while I have never purchased an instrument from them, they have tuned up and repaired multiple instruments for me. The location is nice and cozy with a good selection of nice instruments. I would certainly go here for repairs over big-box stores such as guitar center.

Wide selection of electrics as well. They recently became a PAUL REED SMITH dealer. Wow. These guys are the real deal. And the store is an old log cabin with great charisma. Always fun to go in the Fret Shop. I've bought several items from them over the past few years.

Great place to do business - they were easy to work with. Bought something for my son as a gift but it wasn't to his taste so I ended up returning it. I think it shows the character of the people in a business that they were as helpful to deal with on the purchase as on the return. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from them again.

I literally just bought a guitar there. The lady that helped me was wonderful! She really knows her stuff. As she was showing me the particular guitars I was interested in, she explained everything about them to me. BLEW MY MIND. After she showed me the guitars she didn't badger me like some people do about buying their products. The atmosphere is perfect too. They have very decently priced guitars as well. They will help you on the prices too. They also have great deals. The guitar I bought came with a hard case, 6 picks, a pick holder, and a strap. Some deals were different, but that was the one I got. This place is wayyyy better that Guitar Center or any large company of that sort. I recommend it COMPLETELY!

I have been visiting the Fret shop for about 12 years. The staff is incredibly knowledgeable, experienced, professional and helpful. They have a great selection of musical instruments and all the extras. They also have sheet music and books. They offer classes as well. Several of my sons had Violin and Guitar lessons with their staff. I have rented and purchased instruments for myself and my family here. They are very inexpensive and always ready to do something extra for a customer. You can trust them with repairs and restringing. They do excellent work for a reasonable price. I recommend them.
