Guitar Center's sister companies/subsidiaries incorporate Music & Arts, Musician's Friend, GuitarCenter.com, LMI, Giardinelli, Musician.com, Private Reserve Guitars, Woodwind and Brasswind, Music 123, and Harmony Central.

David Young's insight:

I think Guitar Center being the largest chain of musical instrument retailer in the world is amazing. This gives me relief knowing that it wouldn't be hard to find all my musical needs at a local guitar center. This is good for when i may have a show with a local back but need a amp cord or guitar strings.
