Fender Presents 'The Return Of The Gristle Man'

May 6, 2009
Fender Koch

Fleet-fingered Fender ambassador Greg “the Gristle Man” Koch is once again making the rounds of the nation this summer, demonstrating Fender Road Worn guitars and Vintage Modified amps in free public appearances at dealers nationwide. Koch will make a dozen such appearances from May 20 to June 27 from the West Coast to the Midwest.

At each appearance, Koch, soft-spoken Fender University “professor,” Favored Nations recording artist and instruction book/DVD guru, will introduce players to Fender’s award-winning Road Worn guitar series—’50s- and ’60s-style instruments built with road-battered aged look and feel. Koch will also demonstrate the newest additions to Fender’s Vintage Modified amp series—the Deluxe VM and Band-Master VM 212, both of which are road-ready, gig-worthy tube amps with studio-quality effects.

An evening with Koch is guaranteed to be an entertaining and informative session not to be missed. Guests can get an up-close look and listen as he offers tips on getting great tone from Fender’s latest products, all demonstrated with Koch’s own inimitable humor and jaw-dropping six-string virtuosity.
