James Tyler

The perfect balance between modern technology and old school tradition

James Tyler Guitars is an electric guitar’s brand, known for creating high quality custom guitars and we are proud to be their official distributors.

Its creator, James Tyler, began making custom electric guitars and repairs in the early seventies. From then on, his reputation grew larger and larger, reaching its peak in the late 1980s - early 1990s, when many of L.A.'s most appreciated session musicians and scene artists decided to trust him and his brand.

Nowadays his guitars are built using the best technology, including aerospace engineering, to ensure the highest quality and precision in each of his products. Nevertheless, the brand has not lost its human factor: at Tyler Guitars they make sure that the most modern technology remains in the hands of the best expert luthiers. That’s why each guitar is worked - largely by hand - by a small and motivated team of artisan luthiers. Its famous necks are molded by hand, while its bodies receive hours of manual work through sanding, painting and polishing. The frets are amended and polished by hand through a 10-step process and – finally - the guitars are assembled, adjusted, played, listened to and tested by people who care extremely about their quality.

Without going any further, some of the artists who have opted for a James Tyler guitar throughout its history are Ben Harper, Chicago, Faith Hill, Rufus, Pat Benatar, Bob Marley and the Whalers, Al Jarreau, Madonna, Lionel Richie, Imagine Dragons, Lauryn Hill, Michael Jackson, Rascal Flatts, Supertramp, Whitney Houston and Otis Day and the Knights, among others.
