"Place, with a trace of humanity" Photography/Photo of the Day/Pittsburgh

Pittsburgh Guitars on Carson Street, South Side, Interior and Exterior Shots

Floor to ceiling guitars!

Two more weeks of class, so two more posts of South Side after my Wednesday late afternoon adventures.  It was raining.  Had a single slice at Sola Pizza again. Then found my way into Pittsburgh Guitars. Floor to ceiling. Acoustic, Classical, Electric, (even a bright pink one!) and the cutest GuitarLele you ever saw on the wall.  The guitar bodies gleam. And of course every accessory for your instrument–metal, nylon strings, capo, picks, gig bags and cases, amps and cords and straps and music and whatever else you might need or want .  Did I mention knowledgeable staff?  Sam helped me.   ALL musicians. You can meet the entire Pittsburgh Guitars staff on their website.  Not a big box store.       Personalized attention. No pressure, No rush.      They know they have a good thing and isn’t it great to handle and play before you buy?  Superior to  internet ordering.    They have a very creative website which is extensive and fun.   You can go in and play the different instruments and check out the sound (please ask for assistance! on yellow tags like baby road signs)      If you don’t play guitar yet, it is not too late to start!

1305 East Carson St.

    I love this photo both the colors and the repetitive shapes of the guitars.

    It’s a shame-bought my guitar here but never learned to play. The owners are very nice to customers.

    To cool. This is a great shot Ruth. It is as beautiful as the music these instruments make.
