Guitar Villa was established in Bethlehem, PA. in 1988 by our working owner, John J. Slog, in his garage. John played bass in regional rock bands, including Gandalf, Springfield and Bye Thunder, in the mid to late 70's and early 80's, and also performed in his high school stage band. Music was in his blood, instruments his passion, and Customer Service became his musical calling.
In 1992, after continually being disappointed in the inventory of local and regional music stores, getting treated poorly by them and being subjected to a serious lack of customer service and product knowledge, our founder and working director / owner knew that one of his important life's missions would be to open the "dream store" you are now viewing on the Internet.
If we don't have what you want, we will do our best to get it and offer it to you at a great discount price or we will go out of our way to refer you to a trusted competitor that can help.
