    The new tele looks cool. I really like his fiesta red 55 cs relic though.
    Hope he still uses it from time to time.

    I love that harmonic tremolo at the beginning

    I love Bohlinger’s, “Holy ****, I wish I could play that, but I’m having too much fun just standing here watching it.” approach to the interview.

    If I were to get another Tele...those are really pretty slick. I want the yellow one.

    Greg is one of those players that - besides his obviously amazing musicality and chops (and his obviously non-medicated ADD sense of humor) - you’d have to retitle the segment “Rig Rundown of Right This Second”.

    Always got an endorsement deal going, always changing things up, new amp, new signature this or signature that. Hey you can’t blame him !

    Same.

    I love the Firebird inspired center shelf.

    $1600+/-

    I had to Google price after watching video earlier- Koch amp is badass too!

    Sounds very good to me, maybe a few more knobs/ Gain options than I can process, but sounds like sensible, not OTT options ( plus that Reverb and Trem)

    One of my favorite guitarists ever.

    Interesting that his Reverend model was designed larger than a regular Tele so it would look right on him. That probably means one would look huge on my sub-6' self.

    A friend went to HS with him. Apparently it’s not an act.

    Love the Koch Amp but $2799? Worth every penny if I was gigging full time though.

    Good rundown. Is that the $30 Wilkinson bridge that's supposed to be so terrible on his guitar? Looks like it.

    Always enjoyed his videos and nice to see him get some cool signature gear. He picked some great stuff with really useful features too. It's just a shame that for $1600 the guitar doesn't even come with a gig bag especially considering that he said despite being slightly bigger it will still fit in a standard guitar case.

    You're right - can't blame him at all. If they're gonna just give the stuff to him, why not use it all? Especially if they've let him help design it - I'd love to have the chops and talent to get some of those deals!

    Gotta be one of the most likeable people in music - and I love a rig rundown which talks directly with the artist...not some wanna-be star guitar tech.

    My only problem with Greg is that I’ve seen so much of him on YouTube I know what he’s going to say. I saw him deliver a clinic earlier this year and I think the only thing I hadn’t known was what he’d had to eat before the gig ( went to the Thai restaurant across the road from the store).
    But when I pick up a guitar I do some terrible chicken picken and that’s learned from Greg ( not the terrible part) and his enthusiasm is infectious.
    Many thanks to the OP for posting.

    Well, they’re successful at their marketing.

    I now want a Wildwood version orange one with the Pau Ferro fingerboard...

    I had no idea that it was a slightly larger Tele body.

    I always wanted one that was at least 3/4 of an inch bigger but the exact same outline.

    We shall see...

    Gotta love Greg Koch. That amp is really something, the harmonic tremolo/vibrato sounds fantastic!

    He must really like that amp they made him if he's not using his Gristle pedals anymore.
