This is no cookie cutter Guitar Center by a long shot! In May 2002, Guitar Center moved to town after the acquisition of The Music Loft Raleigh, and before The Music Loft, the building was a Toyota dealership, making this one of the more unique Guitar Centers in the country.
We humble ourselves daily as we recognize the loyalty of our customers to this location. It’s with great honor and respect that we work every day to fulfill the needs of each customer the best we can. With continued training and customer feedback it’s our desire to be more than just the go to music store for the region, but an information hub, a place to go to gather information on dialing in great tone, knowledge of show production and sound reinforcement, home and professional recording techniques, the art of deejay performance, hosting the coolest drum shop, and more.
With the region’s largest selection of Gibson, PRS USA, Fender, Music Man, and a vast assortment of used gear, (one of the largest in the Guitar Center chain), and our loud lounge, a great place to get away from the noise and crank up that triple rec, Guitar Center Raleigh is a really fun place to hang! Most of the sales staff is very active in the local and regional music community. From very experience guitar instructors, live sound engineers, studio engineers, major label artists, touring bands, pedal genius’s, and a culturally diverse staff, we offer a wide variety of talent to service our customers in many different aspects.
We also have three full-time repair technicians on staff that can help you with everything from changing the strings to a full refret. Just bring in your guitar, and they'll get you going!
We welcome suggestions and feedback big and small. Your communication to us is vital. It allows us to continue to build the type of music store that you trust, that you enjoying hanging out in, that you want to buy from, and sometimes even drop off the kids so you can get some down time!
