Welcome to Northwest Guitars
We are a family owned guitar store in Bellevue Washington. We built a quality guitar store right in our own neighborhood where you will feel right at home. Our focus is on quality, starting with the guitars we sell. The guitar market can be very complicated both for beginners and veterans alike. For example, many stores don't tell you when or how to change your strings or the importance of a guitar that is setup correctly. Not all stores tell you what to look for when buying a guitar, how they are manufactured and what you should know about how to care for your new instrument. With over 40 years in the retail music business we can answer all your questions even if you don't know what to ask. That's why customers come to our family store.
Not all guitars are created equal and we spend a lot of time searching for the best instruments in all price ranges. Our prices are nationally competitive and in many cases we beat on-line and big box store prices. All our guitars whether they are priced at $10,000 or $100 have been inspected by our highly qualified staff and guitar tech. They are set up to play perfectly (a $70 value not commonly included in the purchase price with most stores). This is something that very unique about Northwest Guitars. We take a lot of time testing, playing, and selecting quality guitars so you don't have to spend a lot of time researching on the internet or buying something that is not right for you. An of course being Northwest Guitars we specialize in instruments built right here in the Pacific Northwest. We can help you make an educated purchase and we back it up.
Our Repair Shop is another key feature of our store. Six String Service is operated by Shawn DeMots. His abilities and skill with an instrument are very well known in the area. His satisfied clients range from famous rock stars to the kids we teach in our school. Shawn takes the time to explain options and make sure the customer is comfortable every time he works with them. He guarantees his work so you can trust that your guitar will play the best it can. He also offers a long list of upgrade options at a competitive price.
Another key feature of our store is our music school. The same passion we have for selecting the best guitars at all price ranges is the same passion we have when selecting our guitar teachers. All of our teachers are extremely qualified and well trained when it comes to our private one on one lessons. Some have taught in professional college courses, played on stage in front of thousands of people and much more. More importantly we don't just show you songs. We teach you how to understand and master your instrument so you will be able to learn any song you like. Our teachers can help you to reach your goals whether you are a total beginner or an advanced player. Whatever style of music or technique you want to learn. We can give you the instruction and the attention you need to succeed.
Service, Selection, Value, Pricing, Knowledge and Attention, you can find it all here at Northwest Guitars.
