About Us

I'd imagined running a guitar store since I could play three chords. I come from a musical family and grew up watching my relatives regularly honky-tonk the nights away. Strats and Teles were like appliances in my household. When I finally decided to pick up the guitar, it became an all-consuming endeavor. I would sleep with stacks of the latest Guitar World mags beside my bed. I am guessing if you are reading this, then you may know a thing or two about what I am talking about. 
This is the passion that drives Guitar Brando. Passion for the gear, passion for the playing, passion for the players - all of it coming together to write that big riff or simply look hot as hell on stage or on your wall.
I have been deeply involved in boutique gear for the past dozen or so years - but only in a personal capacity. To try everything I can get my hands on - new, old, weird, wild...you name it. I have placed custom orders and bought straight from the shelf. Bargain guitars to extravagant pieces of art. What I have learned is that as much as I enjoy holding and owning a great guitar, I also really enjoy sharing that experience and helping the next owner find the perfect fit instrument.
Thank you for coming to take a look at the site. It means a lot to me to share my passion with other players and collectors. Please feel free to hit me up if you have any questions about our brands or you can always come see us in person at #300, 15330 123 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB, Canada.
With any luck we can help you find something special.
