Santa Barbara Guitar Bar

SB Guitar Bar Street View

Visit the Guitar Bar

We sell guitars, amps and effects that we believe in. SBGB offers you a comfortable place to find the instrument that's right for you, and a great selection of boutique and high-end guitars. Rather than a few drum stools and commissioned salespeople, we offer couches, ottomans, and a patient staff of experts.

The store includes a floor with couches and nooks for you to try out instruments, along with four private lesson rooms and two demo rooms. We provide relaxing places for you to sit and think, and private spaces where no one judges you.

It's hard to connect with a guitar by scanning specs on a website or fighting for attention in some busy superstore. The Santa Barbara Guitar Bar deals in guitars, not alcohol, but it still strives to be a place where everybody knows your name.

Getting Into the Zone

SBGB is located at 137 Anacapa Street in the heart of Santa Barbara's Funk Zone, two blocks from the beach. You'll find the store along the urban wine trail, right beside gourmet restaurant The Lark, local brewery Figueroa Mountain, and Cutler's Artisan Spirits.

It's an area with a rich history that's quickly becoming a center for culture and nightlife, and we're proud to take part.
