The Fret Shop will be closed Monday, May 25th in observance of Memorial Day.
We are now open with limited showroom access. We reserve the right to deny entry to anyone not wearing an appropriate face covering, exhibiting symptoms or when we have reached a comfortable occupancy.
For those that do not have a face covering, we are happy to help you from the front porch. Orders will continue to be filled by curbside pickup, porch pickup or speedy shipment.
Free next-day shipment, on most items, can be provided through UPS and US Postal Service. If the system is charging shipping fees, please contact us and we will see if we can waive those fees.
Our adjusted hours remain 10am-6pm, Monday- Saturday.
We will keep this site up-to-date with our latest situation if things change. We also can be found on Facebook and Instagram.
If you are enrolled in lessons, please contact your teacher directly for information regarding lessons.
We appreciate your cooperation and understanding!
Celebrating 40 Years!
The Fret Shop now offers in-store pickup for online purchases -- online convenience, local advantage!
With its humble beginnings in a tiny, Huntsville storefront in historic Five Points, The Fret Shop has grown into one of the largest dealers of stringed musical instruments in North Alabama. We carry a wide selection of musical instruments, and our friendly and knowledgeable staff can help you find the guitar, bass, violin, banjo or mandolin that’s right for you. After all…we’re musicians too, so we know what musicians like.We take great pride in offering superior service — both before and after the sale. The Fret Shop’s loyal customers are the reason for our success. We pride ourselves in treating everyone with the same level of respect, and we always try our best to make our customers feel right at home.
Remember, all instruments purchased from The Fret Shop come with our lifetime setup guarantee -- as long as you own it, we'll keep it playing properly at no charge!
