Quilter Amp in store presentation Saturday Feb. 24 from Noon-5 pm with Quilter rep Peter Melton. We will have a great selection of guitar, bass, and steel guitar amps on hand, so bring in your instrument and/or pedal board and give them a spin. Quilter makes remarkable amps that sound amazing, loaded with features, and super light weight.

Quilter Steelaire combo with a 15″ speaker patterned after the classic JBL D130. Delivers 200 watts of full spectrum tone for steel guitarists or guitar players who just love the tone from a 15″ speaker. Weighs only 35 lbs, the Steelaire combo has become the amp of choice for steel players wanting to lighten their load without compromising tone.


Fishman Mini Charge. Chargeable for up to 12 hours use and Bluetooth connectivity.


It’s gratifying to see so many out of town visitors who come in and marvel at our modest digs. We don’t have a fancy boutique with high end lighting, overstuffed chairs, and sound reinforcement. We’re just a little shop with a bunch of nice instruments and some knowledgeable and friendly service. Whether you’re coming from the country, another country, or another city you’ll find GUITAR TEX to be an inviting place with great guitars and fretted instruments that’s a little bit different, in a good way, from the other stores.




Curt Mangan Monel steel mandolin strings will make your mandolin sing better than ever before. Unless it happened to have been around about 80 years ago when Monel was commonly used.


GUITAR TEX opened its doors Nov. 1, 1999 just down the street from where we are now in Olmos Park, just 3 miles north of downtown San Antonio and 4 miles from the airport. Stop by and visit our intimate 900 square foot showroom packed with the coolest selection guitars in San Antonio. In fact if you’re flying into San Antonio you can catch the #5 Via bus right at ground transportation for $1.35 and a 15 minute ride to get off right across the street. Guitar Tex is a small locally owned store with great guitars and fretted instruments. We are NOT an exclusive boutique. We are here to serve everyone. For our Spanish speaking friends “Hablamos Espanol”.  Ask for John Ramirez.
