Guitar Center

It was a chilly evening on February 2nd 2006 when Guitar Center Madison opened its doors, but it wasn't long before we were the hottest music destination in town. Every day, musicians from all tastes and skill levels can be found browsing the latest musical instrument arrivals, while stagehands and sound engineers are always checking out our pro audio and lighting equipment options. Please come down and visit us soon! We're located right in the heart of Madison's shopping district at 676 S Whitney Way (right beside Office Depot), so you'll have no problem finding us.

From guitars, basses, drums and keyboards to pedals, accessories, recording software and DJ gear, our inventory is constantly jam-packed. Of course, another reason why the Madison music community loves our store is because many of us are active members of the music scene too, and our staff as a whole boasts a reputation for being the friendliest group of musicians around. We also have an incredible used selection that's full of everything from drum hardware to amplifiers, acoustics and much more, and we hold free "Recording Made Easy" workshops every Saturday morning. Something else you're curious about? We can easily be reached at 608-271-7454, and we'll gladly answer any questions you may have.

Like all Guitar Center locations, we also offer comprehensive repair services at our Madison store. Our techs are as passionate about your instruments as you are, with the experience needed to keep them performing at their best. Whether you need a quick adjustment or a complete overhaul, we've got the equipment and know-how to take care of it. The repairs department would love to hear from you: in fact, we encourage it! Call or come in for a face-to-face chat about the work that we do. You'll have no doubt that your gear is in good hands when it's time for a repair.

What to Expect
First and foremost at Guitar Center Madison, we strive to give you the experience that Guitar Center is known for nationwide: big-store selection and prices with small-shop expertise and personality. From sales and repairs to workshops and more, our staff in every department is well-trained to cater to Dane County music-lovers. Our store is open every day of the week, so there's always a right time to visit even if you're on a busy schedule.
