Guitar Center in Carle Place was originally opened in 1998 on Glen cove road. The location suited our needs for quite some time but alas, eventually we out grew our seams. Over time we had become a high end store specializing top tier guitars in addition to amassing a healthy professional audio clientele. It became apparent that we needed a new home that could truly showcase what we are all about.
On July 31st 2008 We grand re-opened our store in our current location, 111 Old Country Rd. We now have a17,340 ft space equipped with an expansive guitar department, bass room, fully stocked accessory counter, humidity controlled acoustic room, multi-faceted drum department, live room, keyboard department specializing in pro keys and contemporary electric pianos, dj and lighting room, recording suite, full guitar tech station and a Platinum Room that boasts some of the most premium and exclusive guitars along with the most coveted amp lines, including Mesa Boogie, Vox, Marshall, Egnater, and DVMark.
For your convenience, we are also home to two GC Repair Techs, Jason Moskowitz and Andres Rivera. Between Jason's time at the Roberto-Venn Schoo of Lutherie and Andres' experience as a guitar tech for national touring bands, our techs have much to offer. Whether you need a mod, a repair, or just a plain old restring, we are the place to come to.
In addition, every Saturday we host a "Recording Made Easy" class that always gets a great draw and leaves people feeling inspired and pumped about making music. The concept is that we teach you how accessible and affordable home recording has become and you enjoy the benefits.... FREE!
We hope we have what you are looking for and even if we don't we will do our best to get it for you. We strive to have the answers to your questions and even if we don't, we will work to get them. That's our promise to you.
Hope to see you at the store soon, hope you have a great visit!
