I prefer not to shop here, if at all possible, but they do have a big selection of gear. If you can't find it at a smaller retailer, try here, and haggle the price.

This store has an incredible deals. They carry name brands at discount prices that make me happy inside. LOVED IT. Try not to go when you are already tired. It can be a little overwhelming.

Nope. Crap being sold by crappy people. Do not participate on this sub-level of existence. Un-knowledgeable, un-friendly, and un-cool: going to guitar center is like stepping on fresh poop. you usually don't realize how bad it is, until it's too late, and you've tracked crap around your entire house. people can smell that you've been to gc, and they hate it.

This Hollywood location gets a lot of hype. It's like the Grauman's Chinese Theater of musical instruments or something. It's not all that after you get there. I went there today cash in hand looking to purchase a stage piano but wanted to test a few of them just to make sure. I had a few from Kurzweil in mind which I saw on Guitar Center's own website advertised as "Big price drop. Buy today". So I'm playing with a few other keyboards when comes in a salesman dressed in a suit asking me if I needed any help. First he addresses me by "dude". Really unprofessional. Then I ask him if the store has any Kurzweil keyboards anywhere. He goes "Kurzweil what is that? Is that a keyboard brand?" So I go :" You don't know Kurzweil? If you don't know Kurzweil then you don't know keyboards." The "dude" in a suit gets ticked off. I even spell him the brand K-U-R-Z-W-E-I-L thinking maybe it's my russo-franco-colorado accent that he's having a hard time with (most people don't). To which he replies "No,I don't know and I don't really care to know." then a few seconds later "we can order it for you". Huh? no thanks. "Too afraid you might order a Fisher Price keyboard instead", I thought to myself.
For me it's the same as a car salesman telling me "What's a BMW? Is that a car brand?" So I hate to sound like a j*rk and generalize but for such an over hyped location (I mean it's short of "Jesus bought a guitar here" type of hype) GC you need better salesmen. It's embarrassing how ignorant they are. I'm not even going to start with the time I wanted to buy an Ibanez there last year. It's like Walmart as one reviewer said. The best GC salespeople I came across were those at the Pasadena location on Colorado Blvd. It might not have hand prints in the asphalt but at least its staff knows a thing or two about instruments.

Pros: Good deals if you catch them

Cons: Horrible customer service

Good deals....but that's about it...terrible atmosphere - I hate having to listen to loud 80's metal when I'm trying to test out guitars and basses....doesn't seem intuitive...nevertheless, I usually get a good deal......

Entering Guitar Center is an experience in itself.
Being bombarded by the immense cacophony is enough force any prideful musician back through the security checkpoint.
For those who survive this assault, you will be further disappointed by the incompetent staff.
Shopping at Guitar Center is an incredibly impersonal experience in general.

I want the option to give zero stars.

Guitar Center...in many cases the best place to get a good deal or get what you need fast and cheap. They have a revolving door of experienced to moronic employees running through there. Maybe they stupid ones are just stoned...or stoned and stupid...who know and who cares. For those that are serious about music, you just have to deal with it. For those new to music...a piece of advice. Get your instrument, amp...whatever. Then get your you heiny out of guitar center and get some lessons and start practicing! Only slacking loosers hang around the place!

Pros: Price, Selection, "Convenience"

Cons: Weekend Crowds, Posers, THE NOISE!!! and finally the gimp employees.

Guitar Center suprised me by not having several of the effects pedals I wanted to check out. I was also not so impressed by the sales guys I dealt with.

Even though it's called "the guitar center", that's not all they sell. They have a great selection of keyboards, drums, some other music equipment. They also have tons of musical scores for all kinds of instruments. The staff is friendly and helpful. It's a bit loud at times for my taste, but then, it is a music store.

Items and selection is massive. Get ready to purchase what you need and get that prices that are purchased in masses (i.e. savings passed on to you). I had no troubles except when I went to return an item that was an open-box and was within the 30 days. I made sure to protect my investment by making sure that they listed that the item was a non-restocking fee item. All went safe, but you should protect your purchase in writing, because just someone's word doesn't mean you're safe.

PROS: Selection
CONS: Returns

Guitar Center is an awesome place to be for any musician. They carry guitars of course and drums, bass and much more. Not only do they carry instruments but also other items like microphone and stuff like that. They have all the major brands. The prices here are great, not expensive like I expected.

I purchased my first Ovation electric/acoustic guitar at Guitar Center in L.A. The idea was initiated by a radio commercial that I heard advertising some great prices on these beautiful instrument. I decided the price was worth the drive.

I was impressed by the organized layout of the store; it is not difficult at all to find the instrument and style you are looking for. The inventory in stock is fantastic! You will find all the mainstream guitar brands and models and some rarer ones as well. Take some time drooling over the axes donated by well-known guitarists.

I was thrilled that the associate helping me showed me to a soundproof playing room, inviting me to "take all day" trying out the instruments if I wanted. He told me all about theguitar as well as the purchase options. He advised me as to strings that are compatable with the model I chose.

The transaction was completed smoothly and my guitar was packaged securely.

This outfit earns its 5 stars by virtue of its excellent inventory, well-informed staff, and its dedication to musicians. But. Caveat emptor (buyer beware). If you're going to buy anything more substantial than strings, picks or sticks, DO YOUR HOMEWORK before setting foot here. Their list prices are higher than the huge volume of business they do might suggest. Knowing the wholesale & competitor's prices often assure you of significant savings when you negotiate with a salesperson. For example: I once bought a $2500 drum kit for $1999 - with a complete set of hard-shell road cases ($900 worth) and sales tax included - because I did my research first.

Guitar Center has done a great job of servicing the fickle musician marketplace with a large chain of corporate stores. Their prices are great and, for the most part, their staff is up to speed. You'll always find more interesting items at independent stores, but if you know what you want and you want a great price head to Guitar Center. I particularly recommend this location. Saw one of the guys from The Strokes there a couple of months ago.
