Welcome to Guitarworks...
Your Favourite Musical Instrument and Guitar Stores in Calgary.
Guitarworks was first opened in Calgary, Alberta in 1989 as a guitar specialty store – one of the first of its kind in Canada. Thirty years later, what seemed like a crazy idea at first has grown to over 15,000 square feet of guitars and other musical instruments spread across our four Calgary locations!
We specialize in all things guitar. That means in addition to acoustic, electric and bass guitars to suit everyone from beginner to pro, you can expect to find the guitar accessories that will help you get the most out of your instrument. We carry a huge selection of tuners, guitar strings, cleaning products, cables, guitar effects, cases and more. Looking for a guitar part? We can help!
As a guitar specialty store, we love helping people learn the instrument. Our freestyle lesson curriculum allows you to discuss your goals with your qualified teacher and have a lesson plan made for you. Whether your goal is to shred like Malmsteen, or you just need to learn this one song for your friend’s wedding, our instructors will guide you weekly along your course. In addition to guitar lessons, we also offer ukulele, bass, drum, piano and vocal instruction.
Service & Repairs
We also have two full time guitar techs on staff, at our Macleod Trail and 16th Avenue locations, that can complete repairs ranging from a simple string change, to setups, to finish repair, to fixing a cracked headstock. Our techs are as good as you will find and are qualified to repair most stringed instruments. We are a warranty authorized repair center for many of the prestigious brands we carry.
Our 16th Avenue location has been dubbed Guitarworks Premium. Guitarworks Premium is a boutique guitar shop. It features, rare, custom built, unique and vintage instruments from the very best guitar builders in the world, including Fender Custom Shop, Gibson Custom Shop, Martin Custom Shop, Friedman, Suhr, Collings, Waterloo, Boucher and more.
