this store is probably one of the best stores i've ever walked into. i was greeted with a great bunch of guys who wanted nothing more than to help me find exactly what i wanted. i put a guitar on layaway 20 minutes in and they all were so helpful. not only did they help me find what i wanted but they owner personally gave me free stickers and t shirts for bizarre guitar and welcomed me back. anybody looking for great deals on their gear can count on bizarre guitar because they price match. i was discounted without having knowing any of them and they threw in some extras that were nice. this place rocks.
The first time i ever walked in Bizarre Guitar, about 12 years ago, I had been a touring musician for alot of years and seen alot of music stores all over the country and this place was the real deal...cool Rock and Roll vibe, Led Zep playing on the radio, I had never seen so many Les Paul's in my life! it was like Gibson HEAVEN!! LOL....The Customer service has always been great, the prices are lower than anywhere. The Staff has always been willing to spend extra time with you and are very knowledgeable...THAT goes a long way. I got to meet Mr. Golden on a few occaisions and he always thanks me for coming into his store, mega cool guy.A couple weeks ago, I spent alot of time talking to Dave about Dimarzio Pickups for my Les Paul, he showed me what HE uses and i took a chance and bought 2 of them...I asked if he could install them and the wait time was a couple days which was fine by me.....He called me a few hours later and told me he had them installed!! and i LOVE the pickups!!! I won't shop anywhere else... I have always felt like a friend, more than just a customer...I'm buying a PRS from them real soon!!!
Best Music Store in the US – Best shop in the nation > I have bought all my guitar stuff there over the last 30 years! I just went in and bought a new Fender relic strat from these guys. I saved a whopping $1,000 from the best price i could find anywhere. I tried it out though half a dozen amps and was talked to guys that ll play in bands. they knew the answer to every question I had and i walked out with the best deal, knowledge about the instrument and I will never shop anywhere else. They have been in business for almost 40 years. These guys knew their stuff about the product. 5 stars here!!!!!! My entire band shops there and would not go anywhere else, ever. Best store in the world!!!!!!!
So Bizzare guitar is putting up fake reviews to try and get a better rating. Check yelp for real reviews on this terrible establishment.
So I had left a comment on their facebook page about how I had gone in and the service has always been terrible. I've been ignored for 10-15 minutes while holding my purchase in my hand at the counter. The younger guy who works in the strings has always been polite though. Anyways so I put that my experience had been less than optimal. I immediately got a message from greg golden asking me if I had a beef and leaving other comments in my feed about needing to contact him. They all felt vaguely threatening. I guess me expressing my opinion over MY experience at his store was a reason for beef. I feel that was a little kid tactic and this company is not ran by a fully functioning adult. I've spent roughly 3k here in the last two years every time I've ever shopped here I've swore to never come back. And after his lame attempt to bully me over facebook I promise this will be the last time I ever even think about this place except to tell people that it is a terrible shop.
Final verdict: This place is rude. The customer service is Non-Existent. The owner doesn't care about what his shop does, he only cares if you tell someone. Drive to sac or browse ebay for your next purchase.
Reno's Best Guitar Store – I recently visited Bizarre Guitar to look for a new Telecaster and I was treated very well by there knowledgeable staff. Not only did they narrow down the perfect Tele for me but they also helped me set the guitar up to a perfect playing condition after pulling it out of the box!
I will definitely come back here to purchase my next guitar and also grab any kind of accessory I might ever need. (They have a multitude of boutique guitar parts).
This Mom & Pop shop is located off of Oddie Blvd and I recommend this store to any musician that's looking for quality musical instruments and service.
Bizarre Guitar has the BEST prices!!!! – I walked into Bizarre Guitar and was greeted by a smart and friendly staff the moment I walked into the store. They not only knew the products front to back but they are all great musicians in their own right. The PRICES beat Guitar Center by far. You can get the best guitars at the best prices at BIZARRE GUITAR!!!!! They also have a very smart and friendly staff in their Drum Department.
