Musicians... They shop here, and they work here. Just like our customers, when our employees are not at work they are either in the studio or on the stage. They "get it".  The Tacoma Guitar Center is located less than a mile from the Tacoma Mall, and a short drive away from Olympia, Lakewood, Puyallup, and Federal Way, and is a one stop shop for all your musical needs. Our expertly trained staff is here to provide you with excellent customer service, from helping figure out how to re-string and tune a guitar, to drawing up a wiring diagram for your new PA system, to helping you choose the best wah pedal or new cymbals for your drum kit. Here is just a small piece of what we offer-


- WE OFFER LESSONS at our in house GC Studios lessons facility!  

- We have two Spanish speaking associates! Call and ask for Paco or Tito.
