Gathering, Discussion, & Book Signing of Kalamazoo Gals - A Story of Extraordinatry Women & Gibson's Banner Guitars of WWII
Retrofret Vintage Guitars
233 Butler St.
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
