Established in 2004 by Twin Cities musicians Eric Berg and Billy Bergeron of the local sci-fi punk band, Invasion Earth, Capitol Guitars is a full-service, independent guitar store located in the historic cathedral hill neighborhood after a 12 year tenure in downtown St. Paul
While any store can sell gear, Capitol Guitars is staffed entirely by active, gigging musicians who understand your needs, whether you’re just starting out learning to play or are going out on tour. We carry a wide range of carefully selected instruments and accessories so you can find what you need. But if you can't find it, we can get it!
Supporting the local scene
As strong supporters of the local music scene, don’t be surprised to see us at one of your shows. We’ll even help carry your gear on and off stage if you bought it from us (within 30 days of purchase—some restrictions may apply!).
Please come in and get to know us! We’ve got a friendly, relaxed, comfortable store where you can find the guitar, amp, or accessory you’re looking for...
What you won’t find is any pressure, we’d rather let our outstanding service speak for itself!
