(Bü-'tEk) n, adj.
1. n. A small retail store offering specialized goods and services. Etymology, French word for shop
2. n. In musical instruments, a specialized brand of very high end, usually handmade items made in small numbers. Generally a term applied to brands like… Guitar amps like Matchless, Diezel, Trainwreck, Wizard, etc. Basses like Status Buzzard, Ken Smith, Tobias, etc. Guitars like Pensa, Manson, Rick Turner, Alembic, etc.
Odds are, many albums you listen to are recorded on brands you've never heard of, except maybe Yamaha, Sony, JBL, and Panasonic.
2. I love vintage amps, but Boutique are a close second.
