Welcome to RetroFret! Welcome to RetroFret!

We've moved! Our new home is at 87 Luquer Street in the lovely Carroll Gardens neighborhood just a short distance away from our former location. The 100 year old building is itself as unique as our inventory and has been part of small industry in Brooklyn since its construction! It has been home to a bottle factory, electric motor repair shop, and most recently a design & production company.

We look forward to continuing this tradition of small industry in such a beautiful neighborhood and will maintain our position as a staple in the local community. Also located nearby are Folksbier Brauerei, Black Gold Records, Almost Ready Records, and the wonderful Jalopy Theater & School of Music.

Since our humble beginnings as a repair shop, we've continued to grow in both local renown and as a top name in the vintage guitar market. With a unique and highly curated museum-quality inventory, we set ourselves apart early on as a top destination for collectors, musicians, and historians from a wide variety of musical backgrounds. This growth has finally led us to the point where we need more space for our inventory and booming repair shop—a place we can fully inhabit to our highest potential.
