GUITAR TEX opened its doors Oct. 1, 1999 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 and amps in San Antonio. In fact if you’re flying into San Antonio you can catch the #5 Via bus right at ground transportation for a 15 minute ride to get off right across the street. We’re just north of the roundabout at McCullough Ave. and Olmos Drive.

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.
