It all started right here. Guitar Center's first and flagship location, GC Hollywood set the bar for what a music store should offer when we opened our doors on Sunset Boulevard back in 1985. In fact, our location is one of the largest music stores on the planet, and our seemingly endless selection of new and used gear includes all of the biggest brand names. Regardless of your taste, age, or skill level, everyone gets treated like a rock star at Guitar Center Hollywood.
Guitar Center is well known across the nation for their extensive range of services, and as you can imagine, our Hollywood location offers them all and more. Naturally, we're the home of the LA Music Scene, catering to pros, amateurs, collectors, and major studios alike. Rentals are also available, guitar and recording workshops are a regular occurrence, and our tech department has recently benefitted from many facility upgrades.
Need a break from browsing our extensive line of instruments and equipment? Take a stroll through the Rock Walk inductions, which includes the hand prints of over 400 immortalized musicians ranging from Les Paul and Eddie Van Halen to Billy Gibbons and The Cure. As for special events, there's always something happening, including concerts by top-recording artists, and most notably our Guitar Center Sessions Direct TV show that features many famous musicians.
Guitar Center Hollywood is a true destination location, and we'll happily fill you in on anything else you're curious about in person, or by phone at 323-874-1060.
