I'm new to the area and am looking for guitar shops, but all I keep getting is attitude from service people. Suggestions for places to go?

Chuck Levin's (AKA Washington Music Center or just Chuck's) in Wheaton is my favorite place. The people there know what they are doing and are more than willing to help. Plus, they have a lot of interesting clinics to learn more about software, guitar products, etc. They also put on master classes with some heavy people. For example, Stanley Clarke and Ronan Chris Murphy.

One other great reason to buy there is it's independently owned and has been for decades, so no need to support Guitar Satan, I mean Guitar Center.

Hope that helps.

The Guitar Center in Fairfax City is fine for me. Always go on a weekday
though during the early afternoon though because it can be crowded.
I bought my Martin D-1 at Fox's in Falls Church but haven't been there
in years so I don't know what they carry in stock.

The Guitar Center in 7 Corners is pretty cool. The guys there don't seem to give much of a shit what you do, but they're pretty helpful when you need something. I used to go in and just pick up a guitar and sit and play it for hours before I got my own electric. I bought a Mexican-made Fender Stratocaster and a shitty little hundred-dollar Line 6 Spider 3 15 watt amp from there about...3 years ago I think, and they've lasted fine, work wonderfully for the money I payed.

One thing I'll say about Fox's, is be careful if you go there for music lessons. Half of the guys who work there are unabashed hippies. My teacher talked with his friend for 10 minutes when my lesson was supposed to start, and when we got to it he was coughing and sniffling everywhere. Criticized my music tastes and asked me "Well what's wrong with Funk guitar." I didn't go back for a second lesson.

That was for electric guitar. My cousin went to them for Flamenco and his guy was really cool. So I guess you have to do your research first or feel around.

Action Music in Falls Church without hesitation. The folks there are the real deal. I would put them right up there with Chucks.

Gald to hear they are still around. Matt the owner is awesome. Many bands on tour will stop there before playing 9:30 or Black Cat.

It's too bad that Veneman Music (Rockville and Springfield) is long gone. That place was the shit.

Melodee Music in Sterling and Leesburg is quite good. They put on some great clinics, and you don't have to worry about some shaved-head, tatted, pierced Prince Albert wannabe checking your receipt like you do at Sitar Center.

Correct me if I'm wrong but I think Melodee is the only ESP dealer in the area, too.

Foxes in Falls Church has a great variety of older gtrs. Some new as well but it's worth a visit, doesn't have that chain store feel to it, it's the real deal.

Hello dude. I am here just to remind you that now you are living in the 21st century. Now you don't have to search for the shops near you. You can order the guitar on the internet. So, you can read a review about the baritone guitar on TreeThugger and order it at once.

Guitar Center is good.
If you’re at the south end of the county, Alexandria music is a nice little quiet place with a smaller, but decent selection. Not cheap, though.

i'm guessing stores have been throwing away good axes because they just don't sell

(except to pothead, which are now growing)


OP IS A FOREIGN TERRORIST THERE WERE NEVER GUITAR STORES IN FAIRFAX to speak of

you had to go to arlington/alexandria

the stores in fairfax had really realy bad (off brand badly made) guitars

if you wanted fender, les paul, etc, you had to leave the area to find it

Gerrymanderer2 (G2, the OP original poster or spammer just above, perhaps both) posts several lies on ffu daily - many think he's a fx co gov worker who is getting paid to do it for false DNC democrat "advertising". He floods ffu with useless posts to bump down major news, demoralize americans. G2 posts fecal matter, mutilated bodies, child porn, foreign drug ads and sneaker ads, tells people to kill themselves and government should seize them and put them on psych pills in prison without a trial - decided by DNC democrats gov workers, promotes kangaroo courthouse trials, gives anti-religious rants, gives satanic ritual rants, posts black males with large dicks on white young females, portends white low birth rate and fall of USA whites, suggestive of food tampering/poisoning to solve the white problem, and anything possible to demoralize any americans on ffu - all of which are fake news he never responds to proofs it is fake. (perhaps g2 is a chinese prisoner or isis member - but definitely knowledgeable of fx co gov from the inside at times). The website operator has told him "not to post or return" (in an existing post by the sysop): not because of a political leaning but for continual illegal and gross spam along with messages that are only to demoralize if not kill others. G2 plays at financial terrorism as well; continually reporting fake and false financial data. G2 fakes emergency pleas to deaden the real response to any real one - like a devil. G2 continually spams FFU - which all users complain of: it is a real DoS attack - the attacks are not just topic bumps but designed to inject key words to kill ffu and google search results. G2 continually promotes drug use, alcoholic experimentation, and tries to convince members to meet hookers using photos from the 1990's (i doubt any that did are not arrested or dead). G2 continually posts racist posts and gay posts egging others to comment - then attacks who does - AND RECORDS IT (likely for political extortion). G2 and dems MONITOR AND RECORD* "conservatives who blast out these democrat lies and illegal abuse of telephone privilege (sometimes in a raw manner, being so jaded by the job)" (users who object to G2's actions listed so far). One ffu member discovered a south american country recording FFU databasing all posts in a non-chat database format - and when questioned - another member quickly said it was all coincidence and that this was done everywhere in the world on all sites: WHICH IS A LIE. Not all countries record the every word of what fairfaxians say on blogs. Extortion is also mentioned by G2. And the idea he's fishing for comments he can use against anyone who'd run for office is "just assume he's in that business" - and i've warned others that is what he fishes for - excuses to attack conservatives and or to extort them.

SOME POSTERS ON FFU FEEL G2 IS A JOKER: I ASSURE YOU THE ABOVE COMPLAINTS ARE GENUINELY A THREAT TO ONLOOKERS (THE UN-INTIATED), NON-DEMOCRATS, AND TO ANYONE STATING THAT LAWS SHOULD BE IMPOSED ON DEMOCRATS EQUALLY AS DEMOCRATS IMPOSE THEM ON OTHERS: MONEY

LEGAL NOTICE: DEMOCRATS HAVE `SWATTED' THE HOMES OF SOME FFU POSTS WHO REFUTE G2 AND CALL DEMS OUT ON THEFT AND LIES - AND EXPOSE THE LAWS THEY COULD BE PROSECUTED FOR BREACH OF TRUST. THAT'S A CONFIRMED WITNESSED FACT. IT IS NO JOKE WHAT G2 IS DOING. HIS CONTINUAL FISHING IS NOT IDLE - THEY ARE TRIGGERED AND ARMED. which i've warned others about since, about 2010 - that G2 is fishing for men to "erase" politically, by any means available to him


GO BACK TO HELL G2. YOU ARE EXPOSED.
