The Australian Music Association is thrilled to announce the 2018 return of the Melbourne Guitar Show, set to rock Caulfield Racecourse on August 4 and 5 – and this year, it’ll be bigger than ever. We’re catching up with some of this year’s guitar guests to talk about what they love the most: GUITARS. 

Fave guitar brand & why 

Nik Huber Guitars, everything they make is a beautifully executed piece of art that also sounds and plays amazing!

Most memorable music moment

Talking my way into playing 2 shows with Les Paul on Broadway in NYC after finding out the show was sold out so I couldn’t get in.

Guitarist that inspired me to learn to play

Craig McLachan & Gary Frost of 1927

How many guitars I own & my personal fave

Maybe 15? Definitely my Nik Huber Rietbergen Electric Guitar, my Thorell Archtop Acoustic, my Traugott 7 String guitar that used to belong to Charlie Hunter, ok they’re all my favourite!

Gibson vs Fender- which do you love? mmmm well I still own a Gibson, but the the Fender designs win for me – my main guitars are variations of Fender designs – so simple, so strong, and a tone that is way more than the sum of its parts!

Most under rated guitarist in music & why? Charlie Hunter. He a complete innovator of the instrument playing a 7 string guitar that has 3 bass strings & 4 guitar strings he pays both parts at the same time. He has so many solo albums out but has also recorded with D’Angelo, John Mayer, Norah Jones, & Frank Ocean!
