The store features Guitar Center Studios, an in-house, state-of-the-art lesson facility, which is already creating unrivalled opportunities for Williston musicians of all ages and skill levels.

Musicians interested in learning about the industry will be able to come to the store to interact with and pick the brains of several industry leaders.

Williston shoppers are also able to enjoy Guitar Center’s new multi-channel “endless aisle,” which includes multiple combinations of product options to conveniently choose from. Not only does the “endless aisle” include Williston inventory, but it also provides easy access to Guitar Center’s $400 million in new and used inventory located in hundreds of GC stores and warehouses nationwide.
