Welcome to RetroFret! Welcome to RetroFret!

Retrofret Vintage Guitars is located at 233 Butler St. (between Nevins & Bond Streets) in the Gowanus section of Brooklyn, NY. Our showroom and repair shop is on the second floor of a 19th century red brick industrial building. Retrofret was founded by Steve Uhrik in 1983, and he still remains the owner. Since then, Retrofret has 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. Retrofret provides both a unique and private show room 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.
