Retrofret Vintage Guitars
233 Butler St.
Brooklyn,NY 11217
 

On March 2, 2013 during Women’s History Month, from 5 to 8pm Retrofret Vintage Guitars will host an informal gathering, discussion and book signing to celebrate the women guitar builders of Kalamazoo and Mr. Thomas' book "Kalamazoo Gals – A Story of Extraordinary Women & Gibson's Banner Guitars of WWII."

This unique book event will be held at the equally unique Retrofret Vintage Guitars Shop in the historic industrial Gowanus Canal section of Brooklyn. Retrofret's Steve Uhrik (owner & master luthier) and Mamie Minch (head of repair) invite you to our shop from 5 to 8PM that evening.

 
"Retrofret is uniquely connected to the subject of Mr. Thomas’ new book, ”Kalamazoo Gals”, for many reasons: First of all we have quite a thing for old Gibson guitars! Retrofret is one of the few major guitar shops dealing exclusively in vintage instruments. Secondly, our repair shop happens to be run by a woman and our staff includes three female technicians handling most of the repair and restoration work. Finally, I just love the true stories behind the guitars - especially the little known ones." - Steve Uhrik
