Great selection of gear. Best selection of vintage Bass guitars and amps in the area. The staff knows their stuff and are great to deal with. I love this store.

I love this place. It should really be called the Smithsonian Stomp Box Museum. Their repair crew is top notch. They have resuscitated two of my most treasured musical toys; a Trace Elliot Velocette and a Mutron Phaser 2. Both are uncommon items yet these folks knew all there was to know and gave me the straight scoop. On top of that they didn't charge an arm and a leg. I'm actually at a loss for words, you just don't find places like this anymore.

Great shop. Everyone was super helpful and nice. I was a little worried about just picking up guitars in the shop, but they told me it was fine unless there was a tag saying to request assistance. Fortunately those guitars were all over 5k, so I had no problem playing all the guitars I was seriously interested in. They hooked me up with a cord and an amp and encouraged me to try guitars. The only time they came to talk to me about the volume, was to encourage me to turn it up to hear the overdrive sounds.

They had a few smaller (really great) guitar brands that you can't find other places. They also have an AMAZING used guitar collection. There were a lot of nice custom shops and Gibson guitars that I wouldn't be able to afford new. In short, there were a ton of great deals to be had.

This is my favorite guitar shop in the area. I've been shopping at Action Music since its early days. I was just digging around in a guitar case and found a receipt from January of 1998! From those old days to just last week my experience with this shop has always been great.

As other reviewers will surely point out, Matt the owner knows more about guitars than anyone I've ever met. Over the years he has built trusted relationships with me and all the guitarists and bassists I know by giving good advice, good prices, and good service. His staff is consistently superior to the folks you find at chain stores, helpful and really well-versed in the finer points of the guitars, basses, amps, and accessories that work best for players.

Anything at Action is worth seeing these up and coming student choreographers/dancers were diverse,inventive and spectacular! Beaming with youthful passion and pride that was contagious! Also most performances at The Action School are free although you have to get there early and wait in line which becomes a bit of uncomfortable herding with no assigned seats. It's well worth it!

Great inventory, coupled with a very friendly and knowledgable staff. Matt and his team make you feel at home and provide a low-pressure environment. I love just stopping by to browse--you see interesting vintage gear walking in all the time.

A couple of accomplished guitar players recommended this store to me and it is a gem. All the staff are guitar players in working bands and are knowledgable, considerate and attentive to your needs and the style of music you play. I bought an expensive Mesa amp and after a day or two, found it really didn't suit my needs. Matt, the owner, allowed me to return the amp and then helped me choose a new guitar. I live in Bethesda, but will continue to come here - much better customer service than Chuck's.

ACTION MUSIC FIXED MY BOTCHED SURGERY!!!! I first took my guitar into get adjusted at the walmart of Guitar stores and was sad to discover that my guitar was completely unplayable when they gave it back to me. Action Music not only undid what the other guitar "tech" had done to it, but made it play like butter. Pure gold. Thank you, guys. Scotty (from The Method - DC)

Great place! Glad I found them for my Guitar service. After being treated rudely and callously by another local repair shop in Springfield VA, I bought the guitar here and my word these guys are amazing. The owner of action music and his staff treat their customers like humans beings unlike Music technology in Springfield Va. They serviced the guitar and I am fully satisfied!
I am glad that people like this is still around when it comes to service and purchase. This is the best Place for any Musician in the DC area. Honest, dependable business.

Matt B. is a know-it-all but he's not at all sleazy. He has always done right by me, and I am not a regular. You will find all the instruments in his shop properly set up and ready to play, and the prices are very fair. He has taste in the new equipment he carries.
