In the Best of Hands

Tarrant Guitars is a one man, boutique, guitar workshop owned and operated by Australian Guitar Maker Billy Tarrant.

With sound advice and experience, there are so many choices these days when it comes to building some ones “custom dream guitar”. From the body shape, timber choices, bindings, purfling, neck size and profile, scale length, inlays etc. The instrument is built to fit the player, not the other way around. And the end product is something really unique and personal to the owner.

Billy creates a wide range of guitars in all different shapes and sizes including 6, 8, and 12 string acoustic, hollow neck weissenborns, ukuleles and Irish Bouzouki’s using solid tone wood from local and international sources. Billy also makes electric guitars and lap steel guitars. Billy’s passion for fine detail, structural integrity and superior tone are obvious when seeing and playing a guitar built from his hands.
