Guitar Center

A massive selection of instruments and equipment, and a friendly expert staff can always be expected at Guitar Center Independence. Since 2005, we've been welcoming musicians, DJs, and sound technicians from all over Missouri to our 15,000 square-foot store. Located just 15 miles east of Downtown Kansas City at 3911 Bolger Road (off the I-70 and 291 Highway), we're very easy to find, and once you walk through our doors, you may never want to leave. In fact, creating an enjoyable atmosphere for musicians of all skill levels is something we take great pride in.

From jazz and blues to rock, metal, and country, Missouri is home to musicians that cover a wide range of styles, and we strive our hardest to ensure every genre is represented in our store. Need a new guitar? How about a banjo or mandolin? You'll find it at Guitar Center Independence. In fact, we have over 500 acoustic and electric stringed instruments from all the best brands. Plus, our live sound, DJ and recording gear can be experienced first-hand before you buy it, and our drum room boasts over 40 kits. We also buy used gear, and guitar workshops and "Recording Made Easy" classes are also quite common. Need more details? We can be easily reached at 816-373-9191.

Like all Guitar Center locations, we also offer comprehensive repair services at our Independence location. Our techs are as passionate about your instruments as you are, with the experience needed to keep them performing at their best.
