The Fret Shop is located in Winchester, Virginia. Come and visit this little gem of a music store for lovers of fine fretted instruments.
New for the coming year 2023 will be a shift in our focus to carry more and more American-made instruments. First and foremost on that list will be Huss & Dalton which continue to be our top of the line offering. Huss & Dalton guitars are made locally in Staunton Virginia and are world renowned for quality, beauty, sound and value. The people at H&D are wonderful folks and are clearly at the top of their game right now. We are pleased and proud to represent their full line in the Northern Shenandoah Valley. They are consistently producing some of the finest instruments that can be had anywhere in the world.
I will also be carrying the fine instrument lines Bourgeois and Larrivee, among others, and we will be stocking as many vintage and quality pre-owned guitars as I can. In addition, also represented will be quite a few custom made locally sourced hand-made guitars by Jon Nixon and as usual, I will have numerous and interesting consigned pieces as well.
Since opening in 2014, we have hand picked our selection of new, used, and vintage instruments. We take pride in being able to connect music lovers of all levels with instruments that fit them perfectly.
The creed of The Fret Shop has always been "make beautiful music" and with your continued support we have been able to help our customers do just that, across the United States, and around the world.
Stop by and check out our hand-picked new, used and vintage instruments in a pleasant relaxed setting. The Fret Shop is always looking to purchase interesting pieces so bring in that old instrument that no longer gets played and we may buy it! We also offer a thriving consignment service. The Fret Shop has gotten top dollar for hundreds of clients, making the sale of your instrument an easy, relaxed and profitable experience.
