If there's one thing that we love, it's finding distinctive and different guitars that can still make our jaws drop. Known for their exquisite detail, distinctive look and unique sound; Pensa guitars fall firmly into that bracket.
After opening Rudy's Music in New York in 1978, Rudy Pensa quickly developed a stellar reputation as a guitar aficionado, shopkeeper and a few years later, as a luthier when he built the R Custom alongside John Suhr, an employee of his at the time. With a passion for putting together well built, custom instruments, the buzz around Rudy continued to grow and saw him designing and building guitars for a number of rock legends, most notably Mark Knopfler of Dire Straits.
Pensa's name really took off after Mark Knofler adopted one of his custom builds as his weapon of choice. A good friend of Rudy Pensa, the guitars original blueprint was said to be drawn on a napkin and has since developed into one of the most iconic custom-built guitars of all time; the Pensa MK-I Classic. Notoriously difficult to get your hands on, the MK-I Classic represents an incredible feat of guitar engineering and production. A true beauty in both looks in sound, it's no mystery why these coveted guitars are so sought after.
