Backstage Guitars

Backstage Guitars is a brick-and-mortar music store located in the Central Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh. Although we are primarily repair- and lesson-based, we do offer a unique selection of guitars, amplifiers, and effects, as well as strings and accessories.

We provide private music lessons for guitar, bass, drums, keyboard and ukulele.



Backstage Guitars Repairs and Lessons is a unique stringed-instrument repair shop and lesson studio located in the Lawrenceville neighborhood of Pittsburgh.



In late 2008, Jacob Miclot opened Backstage Guitars in the (once) up-and-coming neighborhood of Lawrenceville, PGH. He offered longtime friend Jason Cook a job working at the shop in the evenings after his ‘real’ job. The shop quickly found success in offering unique, boutique gear that was yet unknown to the Pittsburgh area.
