When you need a great bass—but just for a while—there's no better option than renting. From gigs to events to sessions, or even dressing up a video or photo shoot, there are plenty of occasions where a rental bass is the perfect fit. You can bring one as a spare to your next big performance, or even try your hand at a 5- or 6-string model before diving in and investing in one of your own. We have a wide variety of basses for rent at Guitar Center, so no matter what you're looking for, there's bound to be an instrument in our selection that matches up with your needs.Electric basses are the cornerstone of our bass rental lineup, just as they're the cornerstone of bass guitars as a whole. You can choose the classic 4 strings, or try a 5-string bass on for size and see how you like it. Or, if you want to turn up the mellow, an acoustic bass rental can get you on your way. Most acoustic basses are acoustic-electric models, meaning they come with pickups built-in so you can connect them to an amplifier to take full advantage of their rich tone in all kinds of playing environments.Apart from bass guitars, other rental options available from Guitar Center include electric upright basses, plus a range of accessories such as amplifiers to get you up and running with your rented bass even if you're starting from scratch. Renting a bass is simple: all you need is a valid ID and a credit card, and if you're renting for a business or organization, we can set up a business account for you to make the paperwork a snap.When you're ready to get started, just call or visit the nearest Guitar Center location. Our staff will gladly walk you through the rental experience, including helping you choose the perfect bass for your needs, and even showing you how to use any unfamiliar features on the instrument and the accessories you choose to rent along with it. We'll take the mystery out of renting basses, making it a stress-free process so you can focus on what matters: what your rented bass can do for you.
