Lead Sales Associate
Certified in: Accessories, Guitars

My Guitar Center adventure started in Spring of 2007 selling guitar accessories as a part timer in Hobart, In. Loving the situation,...
Guitar Center Hobart started rocking the area in February 2003 and has been helping the northwest Indiana area make music ever since. Whether you're a working musician or just a bedroom enthusiast, we have what you need!

Do you want to crank a Marshall to "11" or maybe sit around a campfire with an acoustic? Do you live to rock out on a Neil Peart drumset or are you a hand percussion aficionado? Do you have a recording studio in your basement or are you a live sound engineer? From keyboards to DJ equipment, mandolins to a killer ukulele selection, or maybe you just need to replace your instrument cable or upgrade your drumheads? Whatever the case, we have what you need! And, if that isn't enough, we offer you our Guaranteed Lowest Price and give you our 30/30 guarantee on EVERYTHING! What that means is: if you are unsatisfied with the product you purchased or find it cheaper, within 30 days, let us know and we'll make it right!

Want to know something else? We buy, sell AND trade Used gear! And, the selection is always impressive! Have you found an awesome piece of used gear in another store and need it? No worries, we can get it to you!

For those who love peace of mind, we offer our unbeatable Pro Coverage! For new gear, Pro Coverage gives you benefits like Accidental Damage from Handling, coverage for commercial use, free shipping, no lemon guarantees and MORE! For Used gear, Pro Coverage will be there, long after the 30 day return policy is up!

Is your stringed instrument not sounding or playing the way you want? We have an in-house GC Tech that can help get your instrument sounding and playing the way you want it!  Jason Thompson is an experienced gear nut who can help you out with anything from a simple restring/setup to repairing a broken headstock; from replacing your pickups to re-fretting your entire instrument and all at a price a musician can afford, without having to sell any vital organs!

Our aim is to do whatever we can to help you live your musical dreams! We have a great selection of brands and models all across the board and, if it isn't in the store today, we'll do whatever we have to do to get it to you as fast as possible!

My name is David Schaeffer and I am the store manager.  If we ever fail to meet your expectations, or if we blow them out of the water, drop me a line! I'd love to hear about it! I work here because Guitar Center was always there for whatever my musical needs were and now, I'm lucky enough to be able to help meet yours! Stop by and say "Hi" today!
