I've been going to Motor City Guitar for over a decade myself. My father in law has his own vintage amp business and these cats at Motor City have allowed him to sell some of his work there. How's that for customer relations?

Everyone knows that Motor City is the $hit. They carry anything and everything.

When I received a guitar with a blemish, they replaced it with an upgraded Jackson because of the wait; happily.

As far as people feeling like they don't fit in...

Grow some balls and ask a question. These guys are doing lot's of work all the time.

I??ve been purchasing guitars and equipment from Motor City for years and it feels like home. My son is growing up going to this store with me & every time we stop in, I see incredible guitarists as well as parents with their kids playing guitars, buying drums and taking lessons, so I can assure you that no one has a ??rock-star? attitude. Everyone is treated with respect & the store is becoming one of the best shops in the country as the owner (Marty) continuously upgrades it.

It defiantly has a different vibe than the G.C. because you can take your time, find what you like and plug in without someone circling you like a shark trying to close the sale. Every one is helpful and friendly and will let you play any guitar you like through any amp and set it up for you.

If you want a Custom Shop Tele built to your specs or a White Falcon custom ordered in black, well Marty the owner will take that order and make your dream guitar come true!!

The selection is huge, the service is first class and they stand behind what they sell. The store just gets better & better everyday ?? what more could you want???

Their prices are usually a little bit lower than anywhere else, including online. The thing I like best about this place is they carry way more than everyday stuff, almost every time I find a pedal or something online I want to check out they have it there. I've done a couple of returns there and they were totally cool about it, they understand that you have to try out pedals with your own rig to tell if it works for you. The guys I've dealt with there have always been super helpful and they definitely know their stuff. I only wish it was closer to my house.

I've never seen so many guitars in my life! Not only do these guys have every brand, model, color, and type of guitar you could ever think of, they are some of the nicest dudes you will ever meet. And they are honest - you don't get the feeling they are trying to sell you something you don't want or don't need. I like the way they put the guitars out where you can try them out but they don't breath down your throat while you are doing it. This is my favorite guitar shop!

I bought a guitar for my daughters Father here. It was an acoustic, old style, with case. They gave me an excellent price. They were very helpful because I didn't know what to get. My Brother has also purchased guitars here. If I need another one, I will definitely go back here.

I bought my first guitar at Motor City over 10 years ago, when I was 17, and the one thing I remember is feeling like I didn't belong there, like I should wait until I had a record deal with Arista, and then come back. Today, I still get that feeling. it just always feels like everybody there is a rock star and you're not. There's really no element of customer service at all. I went in one day to buy some drum sticks and new heads, and I was in the drum section for about 20 minutes with no one in sight. I even tried the "make noise" tactic, where i grabbed some sticks and went to town on their loudest snare but that had no effect either. The good thing about Motor City is their huge selection. They have EVERYTHING! If you're in need of something, they're sure to have it.

Motor City Guitar offers a great selection of new and used guitars and accessories. They have a wonderful humidity-controlled acoustic room. The quality of service is good, but it is sometimes difficult to get the personal attention you need. The staff is very knowledgable, though, and overall it is a great place to shop for a guitar.
