Axe-wielders unite; the Melbourne Guitar Show is returning this August for two days of shred-worthy, fingernail plucking, plectrum losing action.

Taking place at the Caulfield Racecourse across August 5 & 6, the event is set roll out the red carpet for likes of Steve Hackett from GenesisNick Johnson (Canada) and Alex Hutchings (UK), and is set to feature a stack of interactive exhibitions, displays and showcases across the two-day spectacular.

The 2017 instalment of the event is also set to welcome a plethora of local 6-string royalty including experts Lloyd Spiegel, Nick Charles, Bob Spencer, Shannon Bourne, Lloyd Spiegel and James Ryan. Also in tow, household Oz music stalwart Diesel will be present at the event and will be conducting a range of fan-based interactions including an intimate clinic, live performance and Q and A session.
