a little bit About us

Guitar Merchant started out as an online store in 1999. Soon after, the owner found that making a personal connection with the locals was an important part of his business, so he opened our current location in 2006. Guitar Merchant is a launching pad for musicians and artists alike, we are proud to be here for the musical community, and we invite you to become a part of the family.

WHAT IS GUITAR MERCHANT? >

Guitar Merchant is a home for music lovers and music players, from a brand new beginner, to the well seasoned musician. We're a place where you can buy a guitar, learn to play it, and have a stage to play on. We host an Open Mic every Wednesday night, and have a live venue where we book all age concerts on the weekends.
