about us banner

The Vintage Fret Shop was founded in 1970 by David Colburn. Vintage Fret now makes its home in what was once the town blacksmith’s shop, next to the river. Musicians from all over the world have found great company, quality repairs, and inspiring musical instruments here. They keep coming back. We hope that you will too.

David Colburn, Proprietor.

When he’s not fixing instruments or helping people pick out new ones, David is a wonderful folk performer who has toured worldwide as half of “Colburn & Stuart.”
