“Before I let someone work on my guitar, they have to possess a very special kind of skill and that is what I have found with Dan at Don’t Fret.

After I picked up my guitar, it played so well that I played it for 2 1/2 hours non-stop. I actually had to force myself to put it down. I have owned this guitar for about 44 years and it has NEVER played so perfectly.
Big thanks to Dan. I will be a customer forever.”

“Purchased a $100 Japanese guitar (Liberty) on Ebay.
Dan breathed new life into it. Set the action just right, so it plays as good as any other guitar.
And it didn't cost an arm or a leg either.
Thanks Dan!”

“Dan Hickman listens to both you and the guitar.

I brought him an ESP that I've had for years and he uncovered the great-sounding guitar I knew was hiding inside.

Dan has since worked wonders on other guitars of mine.

Dan's work is skilled, impeccably neat and priced very reasonably.

Well worth a drive to Ocean Grove.”
