For anyone used to the logistical difficulties of being an engineeror musician in Manhattan, one of the most puzzling has been the lack ofa major retail outlet downtown or anywhere near it. Now, with theopening of a new 30,000-square-foot Guitar Center on 25 West 14thStreet (the retailer's new flagship superstore), there's a convenientdowntown location to check out a huge selection of musical instrumentsand gear.

The new Manhattan location is the 120th Guitar Center store and alsobears special significance, as that neighborhood has given rise to manyfamous music venues, such as the Academy of Music on East 14th Street.Guitar Center's pro audio department, located on the downstairs floor,provides an especially expansive place to become intimate with a widerrange of gear than can typically be accommodated in a New York Cityretail environment.
