Backstage Guitars

Sales, Service and Lessons

Backstage Guitars is a brick-and-mortar music store located in the Heart of Lawrenceville, Pittsburgh. We offer a unique selection of guitars, amplifiers, and effects as well as the quality, well-known brands you're used to. Our technicians take pride in our full-service stringed instrument and amplifier repair. We also provide private music lessons for guitar, bass, drums, and ukulele. If you're looking for a small PA or amplifier rental, we have those too.

Service

From guitars to ukuleles and all sorts of electronics, we are proud to be a full-service shop. Whether it's a routine guitar setup or a full vintage tube-amp overhaul, we're capable and willing to serve you! Check out our Instagram for frequent repair updates (link at bottom of page). #onthebench #stringwizards

Instrument Repair

We are prepared to handle all types of stringed-instrument repair, specializing in - what else - guitars. We pride ourselves on quality work and quick turn-around because we know how important it is for musicians to have their gear in their hands instead of ours.

Amplifier Repair

We're proud to have (in our humble opinion) the most confident, competent, and thorough amplifier technician in the area -- Trevor Baker of TRVR Handwired.  From new or vintage tube amps to effects pedals, he is experienced in fixing a myriad of devices.  Just like our instrument repair, we work hard to give you a quick turnaround and low price to get you back to playing music ASAP.

Trevor coming up with something awesome.
