Working at The Music Emporium is a dream come true for guitar nerds like us. As you'd imagine, we get to play some incredibly great instruments be they acoustic or electric, vintage or boutique. Probably the best part of the job is meeting the folks behind the instruments, especially when they're new to the market. Case in point? Boston-area builder, Glenn Nichols, of Retrograde Guitars.
While the name Retrograde Guitars may be new to you, Glenn's work likely is not. Glenn was the finish department foreman at Santa Cruz guitars, was in charge of French Polish restorations[nbsp]for renowned classical guitar maker Kenny Hill, and is currently Bill Tippin's only employee. In other words, Glenn knows a thing or two about building exceptional instruments.
If you're into student model guitars, catalog-style guitars, but also want something that's light-years beyond it quality-wise, look no further.
