Of all the communities Guitar Center serves, San Jose is one of the oldest. Our location in Santa Clara has been open since 1978, serving musicians from all over the Silicon Valley. Situated on Stevens Creek Boulevard just off the San Tomas Expressway, we're easy to reach from the Junipero Serra Freeway or Saratoga Avenue. It's the perfect spot for hosting events, which is why we hold a lot of them, from clinics and workshops with A-list musicians to our annual King of the Blues guitar competition, Drum Off, and even our new Singer/Songwriter contest.
One of the hallmarks of Guitar Center San Jose is our Platinum Room, which features the best of the best from Gibson, Fender Custom Shop, PRS, Ernie Ball/MusicMan and more. The diversity of our selection is matched only by our staff, each of whom are more than happy to guide you through the process of choosing a new or used instrument whether it's your first or ninety-first. They can also take you on a tour of the largest accessories department in Northern California, offering everything from books and DVDs to a wide range of brass and woodwind accessories. To find out more about all we have to choose from, please visit us in-person or give us a call at 408-249-0455.
Like all Guitar Center locations, we also offer comprehensive repair services at our San Jose 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.
