Guitar Center Says “Thank You” to First Responders by Offering Exclusive Discounts on Gear and Lessons in May

WHAT: Guitar Center, the world’s largest musical instrument retailer, is offering an exclusive 10% discount for all first responders, emergency and health workers, and other critical personnel on the occasion of the COVID-19 health crisis. With an eye to the increased interest in music-making as a form of self-expression and solace, Guitar Center is offering these discounts as a thank-you and opportunity for these individuals to benefit from the enjoyment of making music. Qualifying individuals can take advantage of either or both of the following deals: 10% off a single item priced $199 or more, and 10% off a month of Guitar Center Lessons.

WHEN: Now through the end of May.

HOW: Visit to verify your first responder status and redeem your 10% discount on a product and/or a month of GC Lessons. A verification code will be given, which can be redeemed in select stores (via curbside pick-up), online sales at or via phone at 866-498-7882. (Exclusions and limitations are also listed on the page.)  (Verification is powered via SheerID.)
