Vintage Guitars in Brooklyn

Thimo and a 1940s Gibson at Retrofret

Good friend and talented singer/songwriter Thimo Sander is visiting for a few days from Berlin.

While checking out guitars at Brooklyn's extra cool Mazzotti Music, Alicia (guitar player of Dirty Excuse) told us about another hidden gem: Retrofret - a restoration workshop, store and "museum" for vintage fretted instruments. Even though they don't have an actual store front they let us come up and marvel. The owner and staff were so friendly and helpful and even let Thimo play on these amazing instruments that I have to recommend this as a must-see visit to all vintage guitar lovers (and buyers, of course).

Mazzotti Music: 284 Third Avenue, Brooklyn
Retrofret: 233 Butler Street, Brooklyn

P.S.: Mazzotti currently has a very good deal on a vintage Gibson...
