Hello everyone! My name is Dave Schmidt and I am the owner/operator of Guitar Adoptions Inc. I will be your host in this section, so sit back and relax as I tell you a little bit about us. Guitar Adoptions is the offspring of my love of music and beautiful guitars. What started out as a hobby many years ago has grown into one of the largest and most reputable musical instrument dealers in the United States. We are an Internet-based company with years of experience in the industry. Customer service is our #1 priority! We are a privately owned and operated business with a full stocking facility in Northwest Illinois.
Unlike a lot of "online companies" that work out of their homes and/or do not carry inventory, we are a company with a full stock of guitars, amplifiers and accessories you can order seven days a week. Additionally, almost all the photos you see here are done in our own studio so you can often see the actual guitar you are buying. Sound clips of guitars are constantly being added, so you not only see what you are buying but can hear it too!
We are not some large corporation that is only focused on the bottom line and pleasing its shareholders. We care about you--our valued customer.
We offer a little something for everyone here--always the best of its class. If you are looking for something in particular and don't see it, just ask. It's possible we carry it or, as is our specialty, can have it custom built for you. I appreciate you visiting our website, and hope that we have the opportunity to work with you very soon.
Our Mission Statement is simple:
To bring the finest quality guitars, amps and accessories to music lovers all over the World, while offering unequaled selection, pricing, and customer service.
Customer Service hours are 7 a.m. till 7 p.m. C.S.T. 7 days a week
