Rudy’s Music, New York, NY

Rudy Pensa’s appreciation for music started at the tender age of seven when he began his studies in classical guitar in his native Argentina. It wasn’t until some years later when he heard the Beatles, that his true passion for the sounds of the electric guitar solidified.

Rudy’s stellar reputation as a guitar builder, shopkeeper and gentleman is well deserved. Every person who walks in the door of “Rudy’s Music Stop” is treated with the same respect whether they are a platinum selling artist, a Wall Street banker or a kid with a dream. Rudy makes no distinction in the service and quality he provides for his customers. The energy and passion for the Pensa instruments he creates is fueled by the earliest visions of Rudy Pensa and his love of the art.

The Guitar Sanctuary, McKinney, TX

“As a young player nearly thirty years ago , big corporate retailers did not exist. Buying my first custom guitar was a memorable personal experience between me and Kevin, a small shop owner in Montpelier, Vermont. His store was a gathering place for players, managed by musicians, where the finest guitars, amps and accessories could be explored. Kevin was passionate about his trade and knew every intimate detail of each instrument in his store. For years, that experience has fueled my passion to create a similar musicians haven. I have been blessed with the opportunity to do just that. Welcome to The Guitar Sanctuary.
Sincerely, Geo”
