There comes a time in many parents' lives when the object of their devotion discovers the need to make noise - lots of noise - and call it a band. Guitar Center is a parent's best defense when that day arrives. A vast selection of keyboards, MIDI peripherals, music software, pro audio, recording equipment, dance music gear, drums, percussion, amplifiers, basses, acoustic guitars, Accessories and vintage instruments is available. But someone, who knows even more than the budding musician expecting a Grammy by year's end, appears to explain exactly what is needed (and hopefully steer kids away from amps that "go to 11"). Guitar Center stores feature high ceilings and lots of open floor space to support massive displays of products. They also have private acoustic rooms that allow potential buyers to hear what a guitar really sounds like, away from the consumer din. And finally, Guitar Center actually has a guarantee of total satisfaction. No questions, no hassles, just a refund.
