“This month is a personally significant time in guitar history for me – the 6th of November marks exactly 180 years since Christian Frederick Martin moved to New York City and set up shop. The 18th marks 30 years since I established the RetroFret guitar shop here on Butler Street in Brooklyn. I could not think of a better way to celebrate than by hosting the book signing for this incredible project by Mr. Shaw and Mr. Szego,” said Steve Uhrik of RetroFret Vintage Guitars.
