I'd say you might have the hot wire pinched somewhere going to the gauges. If it is cut and grounded out it will blow the fuses. Have you worked on the gauges lately?

Disaster averted, behind the dash was a live wire with a spade connector on the end that was touching metal. Phew, thanks for the post Blue!
