Guitar Factory Parramatta
This one-stop shop for strings will have you slappin' the bass in no time.
Most people have, at some point in their life, contemplated learning the guitar. Maybe you were inspired by Jack Black in School of Rock or by Paul Rudd and Jason Segel's enthusiasm in I Love You, Man — or maybe you've just always wanted to be able to strum some tunes around the fire on a camping trip. Whatever your inspo, you can (finally) make your dream a reality at Church Street's Guitar Factory.
Home to what it calls "Sydney's widest range" of guitars, the shop sells everything from vintage Fenders to acoustic guitars for beginners and even ukeleles. It repairs guitars, too, if you already have one sitting at the back of your closet, and offers music lessons for all levels — from beginner to advanced — so you'll be playing 'Smoke on the Water' or slappin da bass in no time.
