Music49 is one of the largest Paul Reed Smith dealers in the United States and is the premiere shop for boutique gear in the Charlotte, North Carolina area. It was founded in 2003 with the goal of becoming the number one source of music lessons in the University area. Since then we have always maintained a dedicated staff of highly experienced music instructors and a great environment located in the Shops at Davis Lake.
In addition to offering music lessons, we maintain an ever-changing mix of musical instruments (especially guitars) and accessories to save local musicians time and money.
Play in your school band? Music49 now rents band instruments! With a complete inventory of instruments, we can help out with rentals AND repairs.
Unlike many other area music stores, Music49 boasts in own Luthier. Co-Founder Jason Pickard, with a Masters in Classical Guitar, builds his own custom classical guitars on-site. Students can benefit with a range of extra services from setting up the action on the guitar, to completely repairing broken instruments.
