Visit the GSI Showroom
Monday – Friday: 9am – 5pm
By appointment only
If you’re in the Los Angeles area and would like to come in to view and try out any of the guitars we have in stock, you’re more than welcome – we’d love to meet you. If you do so, we ask that you simply let us know beforehand – the best way is by contacting us by phone or email.
Why does a guitar store need appointments?
Well, we don’t have a walk-in storefront – many visitors are surprised to find out that the GSI offices don’t share the typical layout of their neighborhood music shop! This is mainly because we’ve found that our guests are better able to focus on the instruments they’re looking at if they’re able to relax in the showroom by themselves and aren’t competing for ‘sound space’ with others playing guitars in the background. The caliber of instruments we sell isn’t well-suited to a raucous ‘megastore’ environment, and having a proper way to evaluate instruments is critical.
That said, if you simply can’t check in with us first, we’re not going to turn you away at the door if we can help it. We’ll do our best to accommodate you.
See you soon!
