Guitar Center

There's a lot to see (and hear!) at Guitar Center Seattle, where we've been serving the local music community since 1997. Located on the corner of Westlake and Mercer in the South Lake Union neighborhood, we're easy to get to from I-5 or Aurora Avenue. There's even free parking on the roof, so finding a place to put the car is no problem at all. All our associates are passionate about music, so no matter how experienced you are, we can talk to you from a peer perspective, understand your needs and find the right gear and services for you.

Some of the highlights of Guitar Center Seattle are our full GC Pro office and our Platinum Room. The GC Pro techs are there to help you build or upgrade pro audio setups including live sound systems and recording studios, and the Platinum Room is where you'll find the best of the best from guitar and amp builders like Fender, Gibson, PRS, Musicman, Mesa Boogie, Orange and Marshall. We also offer instrument rentals, weekly "Recording Made Easy" classes on Saturday mornings, as well as a world-class selection of boutique effects pedals. The best way to learn more about all we have to offer is to find out in-person by dropping in to the store, or over the phone at 206-287-9100.

Like all Guitar Center locations, we also provide comprehensive repair services at our Seattle 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.
