Retrograde Guitars is not your typical guitar production company. I am a singular builder, running a small, one person workshop. I currently produce 10 guitars a year. I treat my business as an artist would, with my most recent work represented by a gallery. This allows me to focus on my craft, and continue to remain creative and experimental.

My work can be purchased through local Boston area guitar dealer, The Music Emporium. Please contact them directly at for availability and incoming models.

I reserve 4 seasonal slots a year for those who wish to work directly with me to design a personal, custom, Retrograde Guitar. The baseline price for a Private Build is $4200. If you have an idea, or vision, of your Retrograde Guitar, please feel free to call or Email me directly. All information can be found in the contact section of this website.

Thank you for your interest in my work,

Glenn Nichols
