John at GT is awesome! I went in looking for a special banjo head. They didn't have it but John helped me find one online. I also walked out with a Kremona Solea classical. Typical guitar player I guess. ;) Would highly recommend, especially if you're an acoustic player. Metal guys......not so much.

Owner & employees were very nice and helpful, I felt they genuinely cared about their customers and had a deep respect for all musicians. They were extremely knowledgeable and have a great shop/selection. Highly recommend checking them out before going anywhere else!

My guitar repairman found a vintage semi hollow guitar there and told me about it. The guitar was exactly what I was looking for. Apparently someone walked away from the amplifier without unplugging it and tore up the output jack area. Then someone put a very large damaged washer on it to cover up the damaged finish and structure. While playing the guitar I noticed it and proceeded to touch it with my finger. At that instance the owner and salesman both showed me the neat tuning nuts on other end of the guitar. Is this a coincidence or not? When removing the large washer, at home, I was shocked at the damage. My guitar expert repaired it for several hundred dollars and the guitar is OK. I suggested Guitar Tex pay this man the finder’s fee and tip him for fixing a botched guitar. They proceeded to talk their way out of it. I would not avoid buying from Guitar Tex but consider it similar to buying a used car from a used car lot. You are on your own.

Outstanding guitar repair work

John refretted my 1973 Gibson Es-335 and did the most oustanding workmanship that I have ever seen..every fret was perfectly installed..in two weeks time, was nothing compared to what other places in SA and Austin told me it would take and his price was cheaper..my guitar sounds like new..I've been playing with local San Antonio bands since 1964 and I know San Antonio lacks the skilled string instrument techs like they have in Austin, Houston or Dallas., but John is one of those rare skilled techs that you can trust your instrument with..he is very very good...I highly recommend the Guitar Tex for any string instrument work, plus some their prices on accessories are cheaper..

Awesome store, felt like home!

I have been to guitar tex on several occasions for repairs, maintenance and other things. The staff here is extremely helpful, knowledgeable, and accommodating. While there, they not only helped me but taught me how to take care of the issue at home. The atmosphere is very relaxed and makes it very easy to trust these gentlemen with my expensive toys. They are open to letting you play anything in the store. One guy even sat down and jammed with my friend on the banjo. I have nothing but good things to say about guitar tex and would recommend them to anyone. I was so comfortable there I felt like I was in my living room.

Always go to Guitar Tex.

Great! After a terrible experience at House of Guitars, we went to get a mandolin serviced at Guitar Tex. HoG quoted us from Thursday to Tuesday to fix the mandolin, in which Guitar Tex did right in front of us in about 15 or 20 minutes. Not only that, but showed us exactly how to solve the tricky problems. A plethora of knowledge and kindness, these two gentlemen have created a lifelong customer out of me. I'm just a student, so I have limited funds, but I'm really looking forward to taking all my guitars here to have them serviced, because I know when I get them back they will sing better then they did the day I bought them.

I was handed instruments to try, rare and interesting pieces. I was shown licks on the banjo, I was jammed with. They joke pleasantly and inspire aspiring young musicians. Plus, you can walk across the street and play more guitars at Red Bone. Cant wait to go back!

The guitar store.

Simply the best. Mark and Gus have so much knowledge that you will have all the answers after spending time with them. I have purchased my best instruments from them and I am overjoyed.The big music stores are insignificant and clueless when it comes to guitar knowledge.
If you are serious about music this store is your resource.
