FEATURED SHOP OF THE MONTH
Guitar Riot is an independently owned guitar shop located in beautiful downtown Cleveland, Ohio, just steps away from the legendary Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Co-owners Brent Ferguson and Tim Parnin, both lifelong music fans, recording/touring professionals, and gear nerds, opened their shop in December 2012 with the goal of making Guitar Riot a home for professional guitarists, guitar enthusiasts and collectors.
The shop specializes in the finest quality, handmade electric guitars, amplifiers, and pedals, carrying brands including Fender Custom Shop, Martin, Collings, Waterloo, Nash, Eastman, Reverend, Suhr, and more. In addtion, they carry locally-made gear such as Dr. Z amplifiers (Maple Heights) and pedals from EarthQuaker Devices (Akron).
The shop also employs a top-notch repair team who take great pride in knowing how to fix anything guitar and gear related.
The staff at Guitar Riot encourages their customers to test out any and all gear to get the full experience. With guitars lining the walls of their over 3,000-square foot space (including private demo rooms), and a motto of "We make things louder,” it’s clear why Cleveland is known as the Rock and Roll Capital Of The World!
