One of the newest nationwide additions to the Guitar Center family is our location at the Hillsdale Shopping Center in San Mateo. Since we've opened our doors in 2012, musicians from the Mid-Peninsula area have been arriving daily to browse our latest new and used arrivals, while aspiring up-and-comers get to hone their chops in our killer education program. Whether you're a metal shredder who wants a new axe or a DJ who's looking to make an equipment upgrade, Guitar Center San Mateo is dedicated to anyone who enjoys playing music.
From guitars, basses, drums and pedals to lighting, DJ gear, recording software and more, our selection is everything you'd expect from the greatest music store chain in the country. With that in mind, we also have many other unique services; for instance, we have a lesson studio that features experienced instructors who teach a wide range of instruments at any skill level. We also have a certified guitar tech who's always on hand, a DJ room that's loaded with the latest controllers for you to try out, and our drum room contains the largest selection of kits in the area.
