The store is great for what it is, a mom and pop shop that does lessons and rentals.The retail side of things is good for essentials, like strings and picks, but the guitar selection is meh. The staff is friendly and helpful and my kids have really enjoyed taking lessons.

I have been going to Gill's for several years now, since before they moved to current location. I have always found their staff to be friendly and helpful. I have 7 guitars, electric and acoustic. They are the only people other than myself I trust to re-string and tune my instruments, including 2 12 string guitars. I recently outfitted my grand daughter who is a budding alto sax player. They had everything we needed, hard case, cleaning tool, shoulder strap, mouth piece, various parts, and song books. Not the herd mentality you find at Guitar Center. Overall great folks.

My son and I went in today around 4-415pm  to get a guitar amp, as soon as we walked in we were asked if we needed help. My son really didn't know what he was looking for so the guy let him test out different amps and was very helpful explaining them. We will definatley go back. I don't know the guys name, the receipt said "DW".

My daughter has been taking bass guitar lessons from Jon Leonardy for about a year at Gill's. She has had an absolutely wonderful experience so far. Her musical abilities have flourished and her confidence has soared. She also plays oboe and they always have her favorite reeds in stock. The staff has always been friendly and I have not had a negative experience with wait time at the register. I totally recommend Gill's for lessons or supplies.

I would just like to apologize for my previous review. I said some harsh things and was wrong to do so. besides the lack of [major name] brands this store is great. staff is very helpful and knowledgeable. its nice to have a local music shop when you need something fixed or some helpful info. and the guitars they do carry are great starter instruments and very fairly priced. anyone looking to learn to play an instrument I recommend you visit gills music first! they have a lot of other instruments too. cool shop to have in Antioch.
