About Us

Southside Guitars is a music shop like no other, located in Salisbury, Meanjin/Brisbane. Home to an eclectic collection of vintage, new and used instruments, amps, effects and accessories, our humble little shop is full to the brim with something for everyone!

We’re a team of mostly female and LGBTQ+ staff, cat and dog friendly and have a great passion for serving the local music community. We believe music should be accessible for everyone and it shouldn't be scary to ask questions. We strive to facilitate a relaxed and supportive environment for everyone from newbies to seasoned professionals to feel empowered in exploring their craft and creativity.


Southside Guitars (formerly Southside Secondhand) was established in 2013, back when Vince thought that general second-hand sales was his calling. But alas, miscellaneous computer parts and collectable biscuit-tins didn't quite hit the spot quite like Guitars do. Just like that, Southside Guitars was born, and has been eccentrically curated into what it is today, with a range of all types of musical accessories and instruments you may have never even heard of before!


As we’re 90% second-hand you can kind of think of us as your local op shop for music, however we’re also the exclusive dealer for Reverend guitars in the Brisbane area, and are an authorised dealer for a number of other reputable brands including Eastwood and Airline, Sterling by Musicman, Cort, Crafter, SX and Tanglewood Guitars, plus Hal Leonard music literature and many others.


We also offer repairs and services on most instruments, from a simple restring to more complicated electrical and structural repairs. For more info see our Servicing & Repairs page! We also offer buys and trade-ins on your old gear and have ZipPay in-store and online, plus layby and Afterpay in-store only!
