Every musician needs a guitar shop that they can count on, one that will cater to their needs and sound, and then have the product to back it up. Brisbane's Music 440 has carved out a place in the local scene as one of the city's premier independent guitar shops based on this very premise: expertise, honest and open service and the finest range of equipment available.

What are the main brands and musical products do you specialise in?
We specialise in guitars, amps, pedals and anything else guitar-related. We stock renowned brands such as Fender, Marshall, Ibanez and Ampeg. We are also extremely proud, however, to provide our customers with a wide range of great, lesser known brands personally chosen for their superb quality and value. These include ESP and LTD, Tanglewood, Cort, Esteve & Schertler to name a few.
Are there any services you offer in store for musicians?
We are a small, independent and very personal shop, so we specialise in very tailored one-on-one customer service. We also offer guitar repairs, servicing and setups in-store, including free pickup installations for any pickups purchased from our store. We also have a great network of repair partners to outsource major guitar repairs and amp repair/servicing. From time to time we have in-store signings and clinics with well known guitar players from around the world.
What is your point of difference?
What sets us apart from other stores is our relaxed environment, where people can comfortably try out gear without feeling pressured or judged. A lot of shops are very acoustic heavy, but we have a really good range of both acoustic and electric guitars - a 50/50 mix. Our new online store is a great addition to the shop, and only shows items we actually have in stock. If it says it is in stock, it is physically available in the shop.
The staff at Music 440 are exceptionally knowledgeable and have real life playing and gigging experience. We can troubleshoot any issues you face with your sound and have the know how and product range to assist you in building your rig, and developing your sound. We pride ourselved on getting you the gear that you actually need. If you need anything guitar-related like lessons, recording studios, rehearsal rooms or even wanting to build a guitar, just ask and we can point you in the right direction.
