Why Choose Guitar Experience?

At RFGE, we want your choice to shop with us to be the best choice you have ever made!

As a retail business, we realize that our customers are our greatest asset. It may sound obviously cliche, but without our customers, we would not be in business. Our goal is to exceed your expectations at every step and ensure that you make the right choice with your purchase -  the first time. Our staff has decades of experience playing, teaching, and touring. That's right... we do not hire retail workers, only professional musicians!

Keep Every Promise... Always.

It seems so simple: just make the customer happy!

Our retail business is built upon making promises to our customers, then exceeding those promises. Whether it's about the condition of a rare vintage instrument, or guaranteeing your delivery in time for a tour, we promise to deliver for every one of our customers, from the beginning novice to the touring professional.


The RFGE Professional Difference

It's all about dialing up your experience to 11... That's one louder!

We want you to be 110% satisfied, not only with the gear you purchase, but with the service we provide. Having the gear in-stock is only the first step in our approach to providing you with exceptional customer service. Every aspect of our business is designed to create the absolute best shopping experience available, whether it's at our retail store in Maryland, or on our state-of-the-art website. Our staff of professional musicians live and breathe gear. We are here to help guide you to the right gear - the first time!
