Guitar Center Memphis opened its doors for the first time the evening of Thursday, April 17th 2003, and since that fateful night we have held strong on our commitment to serving Memphis and all of our surrounding areas with an unparalleled quality of service, selection, and pricing. Our crew is steeped in local culture and continues to play a part in the local scene, whether on stage or as a patron in your audience.
We are here to offer advice, service, and support to any level of musician, from the practicing beginner to the road worthy professional.
This includes our new free to the public "Recording Made Easy" classes every Saturday morning at 10:00am! This month our classes are focused on Garage Band. Our classes are easy enough to get a beginner going, and also teach a few more tricks and tips for a recording veteran. Bring your mac, iPad, or notepad and come learn with us! Miss a class? Don’t worry, we have brief catch up with every lesson.
We also have full service techs on staff with our Guitar Center Garage. Adam Lucchesi and Clay Crenshaw have an unmatched commitment to making sure your guitar will play perfect for you. We can do anything from simple restrings to broken headstock repairs. Come in soon and meet up with our techs to help you make your guitar play great!
