Welcome to Guitar Center Totowa!  Located close to New York City, about a 20 minute drive from both the George Washington Bridge and the Lincoln Tunnel, we are in a prime location for musicians both inside and outside of NYC.  We have one of the largest selections of used musical equipment in the area, giving you the opportunity to find the gear you need at a price that can't be beat. We are the Platinum store of New Jersey, where we house many high end guitars such as american Fenders, Gibsons, Ernie Ball Music Man, and PRS.  We also have select Platinum amplifiers from Orange, and our stock is continuing to grow!  When you have picked out your next axe, you can have our GC Garage tech Henry set it up to your liking, assuring you will leave the store with a guitar that not only looks and sounds great, but plays great as well.  Henry is also authorized to do warranty repairs for several manufacturers, including Fender, Gibson, Washburn, and Taylor just to name a few, and can do other custom modifications to guitars and pedals to make them truly unique.

All of our associates are experts in their respective field, and have the skills and knowledge to help you find the right gear to suit your needs, whether it be a PA system to run your DJ gear through, a new drumkit to rock out on, or the next Les Paul for your collection.  Our goal is to help you make music, and we welcome musicians of all skill levels to come down and sample our vast selection of gear.  Whether you are a seasoned professional, or just starting out with your first instrument, you are welcome here.  Our drum department stocks the best selection of drum kits, including DW, Gretsch, Tama, Pearl, Yamaha, OCDP, as well as cream of the crop electronic kits from Roland and Yamaha.  Our professional audio department carries all of the latest models of speakers for live sound from JBL, QSC, and others, as well as the newest controllers for electronic musicians and DJs.  We also have a great selection of digital pianos and synthesizers for beginners to pros.  Make sure to stop by our accessories department before you leave the store to pick up anything else you might need for that next gig, such as strings, picks, or tuners for your guitar or bass.  We also have a large selection of guitar and bass effects pedals, with a station for you to test them all.  Our large selection of books and DVDs allows for musicians of any level to learn what they need to take their playing to the next level.  Whether it be an introdution to ukulele, or how to shred sweep picking arpeggios on guitar, we have what you need to learn!
