Established in 2009

Billy Tarrant is a master luthier and the owner of Tarrant Guitars, a company that specialises in crafting custom-made guitars of exceptional quality.

There is nothing “Factory” about what Tarrant Guitars is. Each instrument is built one at a time, taking up to 180 hours.

Uncompromising Guitar Craftsmanship

What sets Billy apart is his unwavering commitment to excellence in every aspect of the guitar-making process. From the initial consultation with the client to the final finishing touches, Billy ensures that each instrument is built to fit the player’s unique needs and preferences.

Personalised Approach

Billy’s attention to detail, structural integrity, and superior tone have earned him a reputation as one of the finest luthiers in the business. Whether you are a seasoned professional or a beginner, a custom-made Tarrant Guitar is sure to exceed your expectations and become a treasured possession for years to come.

Prior to building guitars in Tasmania for 12 years, Billy spent some years with his great friend and mentor  Stu ” Sonny boy ” Forbes in Far North Queensland learning all the skills necessary to not only craft a fine instrument, but all manor of guitar repairs in a climate where guitars literally “fall apart”.
