“Guitars guitars guitars”
Reviewed 18 September 2012

GC is an amazing store with great prices and so many guitars! I was in heaven, the acoustic and vintage sections have to be seen to be believed and they have every accessory you could imagine. The shop is on Sunset Blvd Hollywood and the entrance has loads of the worlds best guitarists hand prints in cement ( think Grauman's Chinese Theatre) GC is surrounded by other instrument shops - Sam Ash, Mesa Boogie and Carvin so I dropped in to these as well but their (with the exception of Mesa Boogie) not a patch on Guitar Center.

“More than just guitars”
Reviewed 20 July 2012

Recently bought Fender Spalted Maple "Tele" from this store. Really hadn't played for more than 20 years due to spinal injury--contacted Jason R., one of store managers, went in, & in the midst of all craziness, all aspiring super-stars-"got it bought". Also bought case & cord a week later. Note; at no point did I feel rushed or passed on to another. All questions answered, order taken, options offered--this in the middle of old & young "starz".On arrival, since mostly were orders, I was notified-no problem,no monkey business.
Ton of things to see at this Sunset location--go in--you can gawk-or-play-or do what the store is there for--buy---ROCK ON!

“A huge Music shop with interesting signatures out front”
Reviewed 11 October 2010

This is just a large Guitar Center store. But, what makes it interesting are the Rock & Roll autographs in concrete in front the entrance to the store. It is a sort of Rock verison of Graumann's Chinese Theater with its movie star autographs in the sidewalk.

If you are a musician, it is a fun store to browse.
