High-Quality Guitars, Ukuleles, Mandolins, and More
Guitars (acoustic and electric), bass guitars, ukuleles, mandolins, banjos, and many other instruments are are part of the fretted instrument family. Guitars and ukuleles are a few of the most popular instruments to learn (whether taking private lessons or teaching yourself), and we have a wide selection in-stock. We also have two wonderful guitar instructors that teach in-store at Absolute Music, along with technicians that service guitars. Especially in Nevada (with our dry climate), wooden instruments often need adjustments from time to time.
Frets are defined as a raised element on the neck of a stringed instrument-- something traditional orchestral instruments do not have. Frets typically extend across the full width of the neck. On most modern western fretted instruments, these frets are metal strips inserted into the fingerboard. On some historical instruments and non-European instruments, frets are made of pieces of string tied around the neck, which is pretty interesting to think about.
