Here are some great guitar shops in the Glendale, Montrose, La Crescenta area.


Charles Music Store:

If one is interested in electric guitars by Ibanez or Fender, classical guitars by Cordoba, acoustic guitars by Yamaha or Art & Guthrie, or one of the unique Traveler guitars, this is where to find one at a decent price. A wide range of accessories is also available including amps, pedals, strings, picks, capos, and sheet music. Lessons are $10-$22 per hour. Store hours are weekdays 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Go to 421 N. Glendale Avenue or call (818) 242-6597 or (323) 245-3096 for more information.
