Why Buy From Us

About Us


I'm Back


30 years ago, The Rock Shop Inc. was a small shop about the size of your living room that offered quality merchandise at a discount price,  by musicans, for musicians.  Today, not much has changed , except we're a little bigger and sell some of the biggest names in the world of guitars.

We give all of our guitars a little love. Every one of them has been removed from packing, inspected, set-up, played and kept in a stable humidity monitored environment.  Some of the differences you will find between us and the big chain and box stores is that instead of a telephone operator or email only, you can call Troy, Steve, Jay or Todd and talk to a real instrument specialist.

NO CONTRACTS, NO SIGN-UP FEES We just simply ask that you pay for a month's worth of lessons at a time. Most teachers are $60.00 that would be 4 private one on one 30minute lessons, one per week, or, $15.00 per lesson.

How to Sign Up

To sign up for lessons, just come in the store and we can check the schedule (yours and ours) and see which teacher and time slot is good for you. It's that simple. We have couches in the lesson area for the parents to hang out, snack machines. The lesson rooms have windows so you can check on the progress of the lesson, or you can even sit in.


In 2007, we moved to 1808 W. Jefferson, which is right across the street from the old location.

We have a much larger showroom, in fact we are now the largest music store in central Illinois with almost 7000 square feet.

We have now finished our construction. Some pics show the before and after. The stage area turned out real nice and the lesson rooms look great too.

Come by and see the new store.
