Guitar Center's recently opened a new 20,000-square-foot superstore in Nashville was kicked off with an opening night celebration on December 18, 2003, which featured performances by local rock act Kung Pow and music from Buzz 102.9's mobile truck, as well as appearances by the Tennessee Titans' cheerleaders and the Flirt Girls.

The new Guitar Center superstore, the company’s 122nd store, is in many ways tailored to meet the Nashville music community’s specific needs. Located at 721 Thompson Lane, near I-65 and the 100 Oaks Mall, Guitar Center is conveniently situated in Nashville’s Berry Hill neighborhood, home to numerous recording studios and within minutes of famed Music Row and the downtown area. It’s also a short drive from the growing music suburbs of Franklin and Cool Springs.

In addition to its well-equipped guitar, accessory, drums/percussion, keyboard and pro audio departments, the new Nashville Guitar Center features an expanded acoustic instrument showroom and a separate vintage room, featuring rare and one-of-a-kind specialty instruments.

“There’s a reason that Nashville is called Music City,” commented David Angress, executive VP of Guitar Center. “From my perspective, Nashville has the greatest concentration of recording studios and audio professionals anywhere in the world. This is a community that we can serve better than any other music and pro audio retailer, because only Guitar Center has the depth and scale of inventory and the expertise to address such a large and varied customer base. We’re very much looking forward to quickly becoming part of the music community here in Music City.”
