Penco was a Hoshino Gakki brand for Japanese made acoustic and electric guitars & amplifiers in the 1970s. In 1971 Penco instruments were distributed by Philadelphia Music Company Inc in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. The year later Hoshino Gakki acquired the Elger Company in Pennsylvania which became Hoshino USA - the exclusive distributor of Hoshino Gakki products in the USA. The Penco brand was discontinued in the mid to late 1970s
