The Matthews Guitar Center opened its doors to an eagerly-awaiting public on January 10th, 2002, and we've been rocking ever since. We are southern North Carolina's one-stop destination for all things music, with two in-house guitar techs, recording and live sound solutions for every project (large or small), and tons of gear ready to play. We also now rent musical gear - guitars, drums, keyboards, lighting, and PA systems including powered speakers, subwoofers, microphones, and more. Contact us for any backline rentals as well.
Guitar Center Matthews is not just the best place to buy and rent gear. We also are the best place to learn about the latest and greatest in recording technology, live sound applications, guitar effects, acoustic instruments, and percussion with an enthusiastic staff ready to help. Check out our Events Calendar for a schedule of free classes every week. We are conveniently located just minutes from 485 and a straight shot down Independence Blvd from Uptown.
