The Guitar Center in Hollywood, CA

Posted on Sep 12, 2010 by in Active Rain | 0 comments

The Guitar Center in Hollywood, CA is the flagship Guitar Center Store and a museum at the same time. It is hard to believe that in 1964 the Guitar Center started and today there are hundreds of stores across the entire United States.

They have one of the most impressive memorabilia on display. Recently I saw the world premier of a new Television Show called “The Guitar Center Sessions “where they interview musicians who have made it in the industry. They are in front of a live audience of fans and want to be musicians in an intimate setting. Peter Gabriel was their first interview subject.

Then there is the “Rock walk” at the Guitar Center, where you will see hand imprints of the Doobie Brothers as an example and icons like Frank Zappa’s hands on the sidewalk.

Over the years the area has become known as “guitar Row” There is “Valdez’ Guitar” at 7420 Sunset Blvd. Then there is” High Voltage” where they have vintage and rare guitars. There is a bustling trade of guitars going on in this small patch of Sunset Blvd.

Nearby, there is a Ralphs Grocery store which has been nicknamed “Rock ‘n’ Roll Ralphs”. This is because it is frequented by the” who is who” of music and movie industry. If you are into watching, spotting celebrities, this is the place to hang out.

Next time you drive on Sunset Blvd and you see a long line outside the Guitar Center, then you know that someone who is now famous in the industry is there. More than likely they are there for either an ” a  CD release & signing” or are  doing a Session for the Guitar Center.

If you want more information:   The Guitar Center Hollywood is located at 7425 Sunset Blvd. Hollywood, CA 90046 or visit their website at
