About me

Tym guitars has been an independent music retailer, distributor, repairer and manufacturer in Brisbane, Australia since 1997 and is currently operating and selling online after running several bricks and mortar spaces for over 20 years closing in March 2021.

My last space situated in the Valley was a large open space with hundreds of 2nd hand guitars, amps and effects with custom made practice rooms and recording studio, and full stage and production for live all ages instores as well as new vinyl, vintage hire gear and many other specialty lines including skateboard gear and band merch. 

I have been obsessed with music almost my entire life and since beginning this part of the adventure in the 90's I have hand made over 140 guitars, including my Wosrites (Mosrite copies) and now my new TMI series, built thousands of effects pedals, amplifiers, speaker cabs and countless unique handmade parts including custom necks, pickups and custom guitar hardware. I have worked with many of my heroes and I'm constantly looking for new ideas and inspirations. 

My fascination with Mosrite is what started my real obsession with guitar and pedal building when I couldn't find, or afford these fine instruments until the internet really opened up the world for me in the 90's. Although I had modified and repaired guitars and effects for a while, my Wosrite products starting in the late 90's were an attempt for me to make something like these great guitars and helped turn Tym guitars into what it is today

Back in my original fully equipped workshop in inner south Brisbane I have honed my new product range down to what I am comfortable selling online and I now offer my customers meticulous hand made Tym gear along with a range of carefully curated affordable vintage, second hand guitars and effects pedals, as well as some exclusive new pedals with safe shipping all over the world. I also run my humble vinyl label Tym records from this location.

As well as continuously making effects, amps and guitars along with other Tym branded accessories, I also do some limited guitar repair, restoration, refinishing and setup work. I have been working on guitars for over 30 years and I'm happy to look at any job, big or small. I also do some limited custom pickup rewinds and amp and pedal repairs and services.

All contact work is by appointment only.
