FEATURED SHOP OF THE MONTH
8 Cll Jose R Carrazo, Guaynabo, PR 00969, Puerto Rico
Randy Luna was born and raised in Puerto Rico, where tropical music is big, but also where he unexpectedly gravitated to rock music “without understanding a word of it.” He went on to study the music business in Tennessee, eventually working for record labels, production and management companies in Miami and Mexico City, and with bands in various roles – from being a roadie to being the manager. And, in January 2009, after hearing from many musicians that their island lacked a specialty guitar shop, Randy sold all of his possessions and opened Guitars Boutique in Guaynabo, Puerto Rico, just minutes away from San Juan.
The shop’s mission is to offer great service and honest advice with zero pressure. When customers are looking to buy a guitar, the staffers want to help them find the perfect way to create music. And with a vast collection including Gibson, Taylor, Fender, PRS, Reverend, Schecter, Danelectro, Dangelico, Epiphone, Sterling, Córdoba, Godin, Jackson, Charvel, EVH, Gretsch, Seagull, Kala, Guild, and many others, it’s no wonder Boutiques Guitar is Puerto Rico's premier guitar and bass shop!
Randy has always loved the guitar (even though he plays the drums), and says, “Guitars are an instrument of raw individual expression that transmit a lot of feeling -- some sadness, others courage. When you hear the right riff, you know it is going to be a good day.”
