GET TO KNOW GUITAR CENTER, Houston
Guitar Center Houston first opened it's doors to serve the needs of musicians 19 years ago in 1993.  During that time we have had the privilege to become a vital part of the Houston music community.  The Houston and overall Texas music scene is renown for it's world class artists, songwriters, and professional community.  It has been an honor for all who have worked at our location to have such an incredible role in the Houston music community.  We thank everyone who has shopped with us these past two decades!

After 17 years of providing the best gear along with excellent customer service, the Guitar Center on Westheimer outgrew it's building and location.  We moved to a state of the art facility and a building showcasing some of the finest musical instruments and pro audio gear in the entire country.  Today we continue to grow and service the musicians and music professionals of this great city.  Please come see us and allow us to do what we do best:  Help people make music !
