Retrofret - Official Dealer for Sunrise Pickups

Sunrise Pickups


For over 30 years, Retrofret has been the premier instrument repair shop in New York City. From setups to refrets to complete museum quality restorations, we handle every project with the utmost care and consideration for the instrument's heritage, tone, and character. Stop by for a free consultation. We would be more than happy to inspect your instrument and walk you through each step of the process.

Luthier and founder of Retrofret, Steve Uhrik has been restoring and repairing instruments for nearly 40 years. Originally apprenticed as a violin technician, setting out in 1976 to establish his own shop in SoHo. As lower Manhattan began to change in the early 80's, Steve came across our current home facility in Gowanus Brooklyn.

Today, our repair shop brings together talented individuals with different experiences and areas of expertise to ensure your instruments are given the best care possible.

Repairing instruments is not just our job, it's our passion.
