Welcome to Guitar Emporium!

40 plus years in the guitar business and still going strong! We're a small neighborhood guitar shop located in the funky Highlands neighborhood, Louisville KY, USA, Planet Earth. We're here to make sure that your needs for all-things-guitar are taken care of. From buying your first guitar or bass or your 200th, we specialize in the buying and selling of string instruments as well as restringing, repairs, lessons, appraisals, free advice, test driving (guitars, amps, effects, etc) or just hanging out...we gotcha covered.

We're staffed by a small crew of real-world musicians who actually go out and play the very instruments, amps, effects, accessories and (the ever popular) what-have-you's that live right here in the shop.  So if you need gear advice, guidance or just have questions; let us know. We've probably played it, used it, or done it, and would love to tell you all about it.

To keep up to date with our offers, sales and cool new arrivals follow us on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or sign-up for our weekly e-mail at the top of the page.  Tweet, message, email, tag, call or just stop by....we'd love to hear from you.
