I am thrilled to announce that next month Thunder Road Guitars will be opening the doors to our new showroom in the heart of West Seattle. If you’ve done business with us this year you probably know we have operated Thunder Road Guitars mostly online, selling instruments to folks all over the globe. This has been a blast and we’ve had the pleasure of meeting some really cool guitar fanatics, but we haven’t done a whole lot of local business. Come mid November Seattleites will have the opportunity to get the full Thunder Road experience at our showroom, where we will showcase our fine vintage and used instruments!
Opening mid November our showroom will carry a hand picked selection of fine vintage and used guitars and amplifiers, as well as new boutique guitars, amplifiers and effect pedals. We will also carry a fair selection of quality and high end accessories. Our showroom address is 3916 California Ave SW Seattle, WA 98116 and we are located a few blocks north of the West Seattle Junction. Our showroom hours will be Wednesday – Saturday 10am – 6pm and by appointment Sunday – Tuesday. The idea behind our “by appointment” days is to give local customers a chance to test drive a piece of our inventory with the store to themselves and our undivided attention. We feel this will be a great way to check out an instrument you’ve been longing for in a quiet and un-interupted environment.
Fear not out of state and international customers, our website and web presence will stay the same, as well as our 8 days a week mentality. We will continue to promote heavily online and next year we will be making some fantastic website renovations geared towards making it even easier to buy a guitar from us and to see the piece you’re looking at in as much detail as possible before buying.
Thank you so much to everyone for your support this year. If you would have told me a year ago that we would be moving into a new storefront after only 10 months of being in business I would have thought you were crazy.
Here’s to many more years and many more guitars.
