Guitar Center

When you consider that Tempe's average round temperature is 81 degrees, is it really any surprise that our Guitar Center store is one of the hottest in the nation? Conveniently located on the southeast corner of Priest and Elliot in the Costco shopping center, we've been dedicated to serving Tempe musicians of all skill levels and tastes since 1998. The simple truth is that we take pride in our diverse music scene, and the fact that we have some of the best venues in the country for live bands and artists.

From our wide variety of instruments and equipment to our knowledgable staff who are always happy to help, Guitar Center Tempe has won awards for best store in the district, region and chain for obvious reasons. We buy, sell and trade over 1,000 used items each year, and our used selection has about 300 choices in stock at any given moment, so there's always a good chance of finding a classic guitar model or rare amp. We're also the only store in the valley with GC Pro services, where you'll discover an impressive range of audio, video, lighting, and sound installation options. If you're an aspiring producer, you'll be happy to know that we have fully interactive iMacs where you can demo all the latest new software programs. Or, if you want to sharpen your skills, check out our free "Recording Made Easy" classes every Saturday morning. Curious about anything else? Give us a shout at 480-753-6900 and we'll gladly answer any questions you may have.

Like all Guitar Center locations, we also offer comprehensive repair services at our Tempe 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.
