I'm Tristan, a guitar repairer from sunny Huddersfield in West Yorkshire, UK.


It's OK, I know you haven't heard of it. That's irony too, it's very rarely sunny here.


That's me on the right. For the last 2 decades I've been working on my guitar repair business called Ackworth Guitar Setups. We do ok, we have 3 shops in the UK and fix around 200 guitars a month.


I'm pretty obsessed with guitars - my working life is full of them and so is my home life (it's a Rickenbacker 360F before you ask).


I love them so much that I decided to start Only Frets as a way of making sure that people had access to a source of good, quality, guitar parts, because frankly when you buy online, you don't really know what you are going to get.


Working in the music industry has opened a lot of doors for me, and I've met the people who know the people (if you get my drift).


I can't do this alone. My partner in crime Jo helps me (she's the one on the left, my best everything, without her I'd be lost).


Jo does most of the buying, sorting and packing at Only Frets. She knows her way around the guitar, and has probably forgotten more that most people will ever know. We also have our little Fox-red Labrador shop dog called Poppy.


The gang from Ackworth Guitar Setups are going to be popping in from time to time, so you are in VERY good hands if you need any advice.

We want to take Only Frets to the next level, and want you to follow our journey. If you are reading this, and you have nothing else to do for the next 30 seconds, following us on social media really helps.

Be good to someone,
