Dust off your Gibson, spruce up your Fender and get your finger-picking, steel slide, power chordin’ on – the Melbourne Guitar Show is coming to town!

The humble guitar is undeniably the quintessential instrument to all great music, and to celebrate its rich history and eternal relevance, The Australian Music Association is bringing an exhibition to the Caulfield Racecourse this August.

The weekend event will showcase all the biggest brands in music, plus names and instruments you don’t see every day in your local music store. It will host an impressive range of electric and acoustic guitars, ukuleles and traditional instruments, as well as FX and amps.

The show will feature the leaders of the game in homegrown manufacture and craftsmanship with boutique Australian designs from our talented Luthiers and specialised amplifier manufacturers, as well as collectors assembling vintage masterpieces for sale.

“We are excited to be able to present the Melbourne Guitar Show once more. It was always a killer event for guitar enthusiasts of all levels,” says AMA CEO, Rob Walker. “We are excited to showcase our industry’s products and the wealth of local talent that Melbourne and Australia has to offer – we seek to grow our guitar community, educate and entertain.”

The Melbourne Guitar Show will also showcase the cream of Australia’s guitar talent including Jeff Lang, Lloyd Spiegel, Davidson Brothers, James Ryan, Simon Hosford, Nick Charles, King of the North, Racer Axe and more, with live performances, educational seminars and G-Shops.
