This amazing event, encompassing Australia's best guitar, bass and ukulele talent, is being brought to you by, Triple M FM and the show's community partner 3PBS. Workshops and seminar programs are available for those wishing to brush up on their guitar skills and knowledge. The Melbourne Guitar Show is dedicated to showcasing the best brands of guitar with a monster exhibition of electric and acoustic instruments, FX and amps, along with all their associated technologies and published materials.

There will be heaps of exhibitors and plenty of opportunities to see, hear and play a broad range of favourite brands, perhaps procuring an excellent deal on your next guitar. The organisers do not encourage you to bring your own guitar as there are no storage facilities being provided. The only suggested reason that you may be bringing your own instrument is if you are a performer, returning something to the show or need to bring something to an exhibitor's stand for advice.
