I went in to look for possibly a new Stratocaster style guitar and Jake was extremely friendly and helpful. Answered all questions I had about pickups and guitar finishes and payment options. Never felt rushed or like I couldn't keep trying something out. At the end I left with nothing but knew I really wanted the American Vintage II strat and bought it next day.

There is no question why this location has such high ratings from customer reviews. The reviews is what led me to this location in comparison to other "well known" guitar repair shops. I visited the store to have my Fender Jazz Bass repaired. Lucky for me, I was greeted upon entering the store and my guitar was fixed in minutes. I will be a returning customer! Thank you for such a great experience.

Simply the best guitar shop in town! Amazing atmosphere, great inventory of premium brands and products, and everyone on the staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. Alex has been super helpful on a number of occasions and Phillip (in-house luthier) just took care of something for me on the spot, complete with a quick setup lesson. Safe to say these guys really know their stuff. If you're into guitars and anywhere near Charlotte, I'd highly recommend checking this place out.

I have bought all my gear from Midwood. They are the best in the business. They have the most knowledgeable and helpful staff. I’ve had the chance to shop in some of the most well known and highly regarded stores across the country, and Midwood is equal or better than all of them. Do yourself a favor…stop by in Charlotte or get lost in the gear on line. MGS is tops!

Awesome selection, very friendly staff. I had to drive a couple hours to get there and was definitely worth the trip.

One of the best guitar and amp stores anywhere. Lots of high-end gear (also lots for the budget minded). Super staff. Zack was fantastic.

Outstanding customer service and communication. My guitar arrived in record time and was very well packaged. The guitar was set up perfectly to my request and I played it in my band the very same night. This is now my number one go to guitar store from now on. I just wish I had found them years ago. I highly highly recommend Midwood Guitar Studio.

Hands-down the go-to Charlotte guitar shop. Great selection of guitars, awesome pedals, and amazing repair and setup service. Everyone is super helpful and knowledgeable, they carry an awesome variety of great brands and models. Everything from entry level and mid range to beautiful and unique high end guitars. Special shout out to Philip their tech. I brought a used guitar I purchased with an electrical issue, and watched him fix it in front of me in less than 10 minutes. If I need gear, repairs, or just good guitar vibes, Midwood is the place to go.

I had an LP that needed new push/pull pots replaced. Phil really went out of his way on the service job. If you need a setup or repair, Phil's a good guy.

Midwood guitar studio is a great store. I have been shopping here for years, and they consistently have the best gear and the best customer service. I'm a touring musician that really appreciates great quality and care.

This is such a great guitar store. The store design is super cool. It's high-end yet really comfortable and approachable. Love the design of the custom pipe structure that displays guitars in the main showroom. If you're a guitar player, you've got to stop by just to see and experience the place. It's great. The staff is equally amazing. Philip recently set up my white Gretsch 12 string Falcon Rancher and WOW, it plays like a dream now. I didn't think the guitar was too bad off the shelf - but Philip was able to dial it in to where it plays like a dream now. So much better. I'm super thrilled. I chatted with Philip when picking my guitar up and learned he is a true luthier with the schooling and experience to back it up. He actually built guitars professionally for 10 years so he's not just a guy who changes strings. He's a guitar master craftsman who knows how to get the most out of a guitar.

The best guitar shop in Charlotte, and I never go anywhere else when I'm in the market for strings, an amp, a pedal, or a new guitar.

Best guitar shop in the universe! So friendly and patient! We hit traffic on the way to pickup a guitar in their shop and got there 10 mins after close, but called ahead and Phil waited for us!! So rare to find that kind of service!!

There’s few guitar shops that come to mind that I’d take my own guitar to when I need work done. But Midwood is the top of my list. Phil does excellent work. I had really expensive pickups put in my Les Paul by someone else and the wiring job was stellar and fine, but the pickups had been over tightened in the mount and actually became warped so they no longer fit flush in the mount. Phil replaced them and made them fit more flush in my guitar again without a tremendous price point.

I have been dealing with Doug and the fine crew at Midwood Guitars for 5 years now I only buy from them if they have what i want and they always do, best place to buy pedals custom shop fenders and a lot of other brands, they have always given me a great deal if I could give 10 stars i would fine people to deal with.

Logan Hoffman (March 22nd, 2024)

Took my Les Paul in to have the toggle switch repaired/replaced and Phillip was able to get me in and out quickly as I had a short window of time. Honestly, I wouldn't have minded much if he took a little longer as I never get tired of roaming the shop dreaming about my next guitar.

Great staff. They’re so welcoming and passionate about helping their clients/providing excellent service. Special shout out to Phil, Midwood’s luthier. This guy does some very professional work, and man can he do it fast. His experience really shines through both his craft and communication skills. He set up my Custom 24 SE and added some pick-up covers in under a day’s time even though he had a massive queue of projects. Pricing was very reasonable for the quality of work. He answered all of my questions, no matter how silly they were, and I can confidently say that my guitar plays the better than anything I’ve touched in the last 15 years. If you live in CLT (or are even visiting, as I was my case), you should really consult Phil for your guitar needs.

Just an outstanding guitar shop, from the beautiful decor to an incredible inventory and an outstanding knowledgeable staff. I have bought and sold several guitars since moving to Charlotte last year and each transaction was handled in a friendly and professional manner. In these dealings I have had the occasion to interact with each staff member and could not be more pleased. These guys confirm the value of a locally owned shop every time I stop by. I look forward to dealing with these folks whenever possible. Highly recommended!!!
