Welcome to RetroFret! Welcome to RetroFret!

"Entering the serene, light-filled showroom, you are greeted by rows of Martin acoustic guitars propped on stands on a large Oriental rug. To the right is a wall of banjos, and to the left a room of electric guitars, where Fenders and Gibsons hang from the walls like so many lacquered lollipops." — New York Times

Retrofret Vintage Guitars was founded by Steve Uhrik in 1983. Since then, we have been serving musicians and collectors both locally and worldwide. Along with classic vintage instruments, we handle many guitars that fall into the category of extremely rare and bizarre.

Our showroom is located at 233 Butler St. (between Nevins & Bond Streets) in Gowanus, Brooklyn. Our showroom and repair shop is on the second floor of a 19th century red brick industrial building, the former site of the Brooklyn ASPCA.

Retrofret provides both a unique and private showroom experience with a museum-quality restoration and repair facility on premises. Visitors are invited to browse and play a wide and unusual selection of acoustic & electric guitars, basses, banjos, mandolins, ukuleles, effects pedals, and amps.

"I immediately felt spoiled by the experience, and knew that I had found a very special place."Jack F., Brooklyn, NY (Yelp)
