GET TO KNOW GUITAR CENTER, Baton Rouge
                Guitar Center Baton Rouge opened up in August of 2004 and has been the home for many different musicians. We have an extremely knowledgeable staff and can offer a bunch of different services to help you make as much music as you want! This location has a wide variety of instruments and products to choose from including guitars, basses, drums, PA, DJ, studio, keyboards, and all the accessories you need to get set up. If we do not have what you are looking for, feel free to ask one of our, upwards of 20-25, friendly associates, and we will work our hardest to get what you need.
                This has been a home for a ton of local and professional musicians for over seven years now. Just recently Baton Rouge’s very own Jonathan “Boogie” Long was crowned Guitar Center’s King of the Blues, a national blues guitar competition held in September of 2011.
You can click here to see Jonathan’s winning performance: www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcPsr6wdzIQ .  
                Another local home town musician is one of our very own employees Steve Bergeron. Steve toured the US for about eight years with his band Meriwether. Meriwether toured with bands such as Papa Roach, Alter Bridge, My Chemical Romance, Killswitch Engaged, Puddle of Mudd, 10 Years, Saving Able, 30 Second to Mars, and many more!
                Along with Steve, our staff has played many big name venues including House of Blues in New Orleans, The Varsity, Baton Rouge River Center, and The Texas Club. Along with the wealth of knowledge that we have about our gear, we can also give you an insider’s look to the music industry.
                We offer many different services to help you out in anything you want to do as well! We have our own Guitar Center Certified Guitar Tech that can do a number of different repairs to your guitar or bass. Matt Shuckrow has been here for over five years now, he lives and breathes repairs.  He can do anything from re-strings, pickup installs, set-ups, replacing nut or saddle, and many more! We are continuously training on new techniques and services to help you out.
                Another service we offer is our Recording Made Easy classes. Every Saturday morning from 10:00AM to 11:00AM we have a free class that Dustin Braud, a Full Sail Recording Graduate, teaches you on very many techniques on how to use recording programs, production programs, and different synthesizer software.   This expands more and more each week as we move ahead in our recording knowledge.
                All of our associates are her to help you make music. Anything that we can do for you, please do not hesitate to ask anyone here, call, or E-Mail us. We would love to see you in the store to show you what we can do for you to make your music experience anything and everything you can dream of.
