  • New for 2019, Tama's Starclassic Walnut/Birch shell packs add a new dimension of sound to the drummer-favorite Starclassic lineup. Walnut and birch are a match made in heaven. These two tonewoods complement one another with a 6 mm shell consisting of four plies of European birch and two inner plies of American black walnut. The result is a pure, modern tone that is clear and well-defined, yet warm and round.

Vintage Guitar Finds | Mary Kaye Fender Stratocaster & Telecaster
In the 1950s, it was rare to open up a magazine and find a woman playing one of rock and roll’s most coveted instruments. Thanks to pioneering guitarists like Mary Kaye, often referred to as the “First Lady of Rock and Roll,” more women than ever are playing guitar, with artists like Nita Strauss and St. Vincent unveiling their signature models in recent years.
  • Every guitar has a story to tell but not often do we get to know it so completely. Our Vintage team recently came across a rare single-owner 1963 Gibson SG Custom with a Cherry finish. We sat down with our Director of Used and Vintage, Jack Hetherington and Vintage Acquisition Manager Nick Conte to get the full details.
  • Jack Hetherington, Guitar Center's Director of Used and Vintage, has seen countless rare guitars, but when a single-owner 1958 Gibson Les Paul Custom came through the Hollywood Vintage Room, he had to share. We chatted with Jack about this unique instrument and the process of acquiring vintage guitars.
  • Technology has modernized the way we consume and create music. Today’s smartphones are very powerful devices with fast processors. Wireless data speeds have increased exponentially in just a few years. We use our iOS and Android phones for everything from live streaming video to real-time navigation. Developers are constantly creating new apps that benefit content producers, DJs and live musicians. Check out a few of our favorite high-tech gadgets to see how you can use your iPhone or Android phone for professional music production, performance or recording.

Buying Guides

  • Buying a wireless system may not seem as gratifying as getting a new guitar, which can offer different tonal possibilities and invigorate your playing with how it looks and feels; and it isn’t as justifiable as buying a new pedal, which can open up a whole new palette of textures and tone. In fact, the less a wireless system messes with your sound, the better. However, switching from a conventional cable to a wireless system inspires how you perform by literally unleashing you, allowing you to explore the stage and connect with your audience like never before.
