News: Melbourne Guitar Festival Brings the Noise

Over the weekend the Caufield Racecourse bought together under one roof three massive levels of all things guitar for players and enthusiast to enjoy.

The first floor compromised of all things electric with the gang from Reverb talking about their music marketplace and educational website. Not just a market place but a whole music community website to connect with like minded individuals.

For the gadget person Fusion guitars were demonstrating the latest in technology with an integrated iPhone dock, amp, speakers and battery, the Fusion Guitar redefines what an electric guitar is, and what it can do – pretty impressive stuff and very cool.

If that wasn’t enough to get you excited, then special guests Bec Sandridge and Harts dropped into the Fender stand to demo the latest range and play a few surprise songs for everyone.

For the acoustic lovers the second floor was the place to be. Maton, Cole Clark and Wasburn rubbed shoulders with some of the most beautifully crafted acoustic guitars all in one place. At the Maton stand guitar maker Zac Eccles was on hand to talk all things guitar. Whilst you may not know his name his work as the guitar maker for King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard you will know.

The event was a two day affair jam packed with music, the chance to try out gear and listen to some amazing music being played by numerous special guests and performers. Even if you can’t play it was a great chance to appreciate the beauty of all things guitar.
