"Musicians Serving Musicians"
Our mission statement is simple: Treat other people as we would like to be treated ourselves. We sincerely appreciate our customers and it's our goal to offer them the biggest selection of the best music gear at the lowest possible prices.
We know there is an infinite number of places to shop for music gear. We will always strive to create a fun place where our fellow musicians can feel comfortable tone-chasing in a relaxed, no-pressure environment. If you find something you like at our store, we want to make you happy with your purchase in every way so that you'll come back and hopefully tell your friends.
Motor City Guitar opened in the summer of 1988 in a 1,000 square foot store with just a handful of guitars and amplifiers. Little by little, with the support of incredibly loyal local musicians, the store has grown to become one of the largest independent music stores in the Midwest. Since the beginning and continuing today, our business has been based almost entirely on the word-of-mouth advertising of fellow musicians.
Whether you are someone just finding out about us for the first time or someone that has been with us for over 20 years, we sincerely appreciate every one of our awesome customers. We would be nothing without you.
We're proud to be an independent Michigan family-owned music store. We pride ourselves in having a staff made up of some of the most friendly, helpful, honest, and knowledgeable musicians in the business. Motor City Guitar is a single location 17,000 sq ft brick and mortar store, not a part of a retail chain.
We recently added a new 2,000 sq ft warehouse to make it possible to efficiently operate our upcoming online store.
