Centaur Guitar is located at 2833 NE Sandy Blvd in Portland, Oregon and owned and operated by Kelly Manahan and Jason Snell, the dueling guitarists in Portland's very own Muddy River Nightmare Band. We're a full service music store with great prices, friendly service, and cool stuff.
We pride ourselves on being members of the community that we operate in, and know what it's like to play a thirty-minute set at midnight on a Tuesday for fifteen dollars and a couple of free beers. We opened our doors in April 2005 when we realized there were no stores in the area that we felt like we were or could be a part of. While other music shops in Portland seem to be moving in a "bigger is better", impersonal, mega store direction, we decided to open a small, community oriented, rock and roll shop. Seven years later we're still going strong and still believe in what we're doing. We're owner operated and proud of it!
