Bookmark and Share


— 245th Guitar Center location features on-site lessons and repair services, along with GC’s vast inventory selection —

Westlake Village, CA (April 30, 2013) – On the evening of Thursday, April 25, 2013, Guitar Center held the grand opening of its new location in Macon, Georgia, located at 4551 Billy Williamson Dr. Suite 160, Macon, GA 31206. The Macon store (Guitar Center’s 245th retail location) is part of a new wave of Guitar Center retail stores that feature lesson spaces, which allows the brand to offer additional music lessons, special programs and expanded opportunities for local musicians.

GC Macon Store Manager Jason Kunberger, who has been with Guitar Center since 2004 in Atlanta, stated, “We are so excited to be bringing a Guitar Center to Middle Georgia, and I’m so humbled to get to be a part of it. I love being involved in helping people grow in their musicianship, from helping customers find their first instrument, then watching them learn to play at GC Studios lessons, to seeing them come back to expand their collection throughout the years – it’s exciting to feel so connected to new music being made everyday.”

GC Macon Assistant Manager Sarah Fordham added, “For me working for Guitar Center is a dream job and starting at the first store outside the central Atlanta area in Georgia allows me to be a part of making it even easier for Guitar Center to help Macon residents, such as myself, get the instruments and tools they need to help them make music. We pride ourselves on giving our customers the best possible experience when coming to our stores and the whole Macon staff is excited to share those experiences with our friends, neighbors and local musicians in Macon, while assisting them with all their musical needs.”
