Hey guys I'm leaving for California for a week, I'm not used to the area! Does anyone know any music stores? around LA?
Guitar center in Hollywood, Sam Ash is down the street from it. The Calvin store is almost directly across the street and the Mesa Boogie store is on the corner.
Have fun!
A man said to the universe:
"Sir, I exist!"
"However," replied the universe,
"The fact has not created in me
A sense of obligation."

If you mean equipment go to Sunset there is plenty. A Guitar Center next to a Sam Ash, plenty of other shops next to it.

If you mean to buy music go to Amoeba also on Sunset. Huge music store.
