After drawing thousands of guitar lovers and enthusiasts to the 2018 Melbourne Guitar Show, #MGS2019 is growing year on year and is gearing up for the biggest event yet. Champion of the Australian music products industry, Australian Music Association (AMA) will be teaming up with australianmusician.com.au
Thrilled to present #MGS2019 once again, AMA executive officer and MGS organiser, Rob Walker said, “It’s exciting to see the show develop each year and add value to the live music industry. We are proud to present such a broad range and quality of guitars, amps and gear from the big brands to local artisans. And each year we get to put together a program of live music featuring the considerable talents of our guitar community. It’s a great weekend for anyone into music, particularly guitars.”
Rob continues, “And not only will the #MGS2019 provide a hands-on chance to see and play such a broad range of gear, there’ll be bargains a plenty. We like to call it Australia’s biggest pop up guitar store!”
