Christmas is right around the corner...but there are still 11 shopping days left! The Guitar Room in Hagerstown has the perfect gifts for your musically inclined special someone! Upon entering the front door you're greeted by classic guitars on your right, electric guitars on your left, and bass guitars straight ahead. But as the title states, they are Not Just Guitars!

The Guitar Room has spent over 44 years providing "sound" product and service in West Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, and Virginia.

"Our suppliers put 110% into their products and product support which helps us with our promise to you: 100% Customer Satisfaction Always!"
Craig's father, Robert Schoppert, operates the store in Martinsburg. Craig branched off that business to open his own store in Hagerstown 25 years ago (1985) when he saw that there was a need for their type of business here.
The Guitar Room also offers their customers school band and orchestra rentals. Got a question? Ask Craig - he'd be happy to help.
