Scott Porad +1 to Dusty Strings in Fremont. Or, Emerald City Guitars in Pioneer Square.

Its where I bought my last axe

Also Guitar center in Redmond is pretty good. That's where my buddy gets his. If I remember right, they carried some pretty nice Les Pauls
Tom Laramee It would help to know a couple of things: (1) acoustic vs electric (2) for an adult vs for a child and (3) new vs used. Dusty Strings is a wonderful shop, but they specialize in acoustic instruments. I think they have a handful of electric guitars, but the overwhelming selection will all be acoustic. They also have a "Baby Taylor" or two, which is an acoustic guitar that's ideal for a child to begin learning (it's just a 3/4 scaled down version of a full-sized acoustic guitar and they're super easy/fun to play). Their staff is great and you can sit in there for hours and play as many guitars as you'd like before deciding.

If you want a massive selection and lots of price variance, The Trading Musician would be a great place to check out. It's mostly electric but I'm pretty sure they'll have a lot of both. They carry both new & used. Prepare to be overwhelmed with choices.

Emerald City Guitars specializes in vintage guitars, which I think would be ideal if you're looking for a vintage guitar (but not so much if you're looking for a new guitar). I also think they lean electric, meaning they have a handful of acoustic but many more electric.

Kim Rachmeler Intentionalist has a holiday gift guide from businesses locally-owned by women, people of color, veterans, LGBTQ, families, and differently abled people:
Kim Rachmeler You can also support local Pike Place Market vendors through their Christmas marketplace.
Amy Woidtke I second Intentionalist as a great resource for buying and supporting local, small biz, BIPOC, LGBTQ, veteran, women and disability-owned businesses.

You can search by state, city and type of shop, store, restaurant, etc.

Intentionalist itself is an LGBTQ, woman owned and local site.

did a beautiful job on an antique ring that I had. And the prices can't be beat for a personal jeweler.
Lawrence Lerner Green Lake Jewelry Works. Amazing shop. Their repair lab is bigger than most jewelry stores. It's worth going in to see. They've done great work for me.
Linda Chow I would also recommend Green Lake Jewelry, which was recommended to me by a prominent jewelry shop owner. They did a seamless job with an ornate ring band that I needed to resize.

Steve Dossick Something small like that might be a good job for Capitol Hill handyman? Alternately you can probably purchase your own cable, protect the end with tape, and use the existing bad cable to pull the new cable through the wall...
Adam Doppelt Agreed - start with a handyman or try to do it yourself. I'm not great at this, but I've managed to pull a cable or two. It's not too hard, assuming there is some room in the wall. Google "how to pull cable". If you need a true home automation professional, I recommend Wipliance. They can fix your whole setup no matter how complicated, including hardware, electrical, etc for $$$.
Detlef Schrempf Have had the same issue and thought about doing it myself and was told it was not hard but this was not encouraging -
We were having some electrical work done anyways and the electrician was able to pull the cable through the drywall. Better off paying a professional :)
