About Us

Tym guitars is an independent music shop like no other in Australia, possibly even the world. We offer our customers the best range of vintage to affordable second hand guitars, amps and effects pedals in Brisbane, with safe online buying and we ship all over the world.
I also make a very limited number of hand crafted custom guitars, basses, speaker cabs and amps, and effects pedals the way they should be made – completely by hand.

We have a huge, diverse range of products including new, second hand and vintage amps, recording equipment, new vinyl, merch and collectables, drum products and tour gear. We are the importer/distributor for several low volume brands of gear including skateboard decks, effects pedals and indie vinyl labels. We also have Australia's biggest selection of vintage hire gear as well as practice rooms with a full digital multi track recording studio.

Add to all of this the unique feature of the retail shop having a fully equipped live stage for touring bands to play instores and signings and this becomes a very exciting destination for bands and the public alike. The fully dedicated stage area has full backline from our list of hire gear including guitars, basses, effects and amps and runs a custom built PA and audio system with the option of full multi track studio quality recording of all instores.

We have a professional guitar teacher available 5 nights a week for students to learn acoustic, electric guitar or bass in our soundproof, air-conditioned practice rooms. Good quality, well serviced guitars and amps available at no extra cost.

I also have a vinyl record shop with over 2000 new titles in stock with new stock coming in all the time. To coincide with this record shop I also run a record label releasing limited edition vinyl of bands that I think you should hear.

We do on site guitar repair, restoration, refinishing and setup work as well as pick up rewinds and amp and pedal electronics repairs. Contact our repair technicians for an appointment or more info.
