Portland, Ore. (October 19, 2021) – Gerber Equipment, a leading brand of knives, multi-tools and equipment, has strengthened its partnership with the main manufacturers of musical instruments Fender Guitars. The big brands created a contest and giveaway featuring a unique personalized guitar and a trio of personalized knives, hosted by ambassadors Gerber Luke Wessman and Tim Montana.

World-renowned tattoo artist and designer Luke Wessman and country music star Tim Montana have teamed up to create three truly unique award packages. One lucky winner will receive a personalized Fender guitar, along with three custom cutters made in the USA from the Gerber Custom program. Wessman drew his artistic inspiration for the guitar design from Montana’s lyrics to his popular song “American Thread.” The phrase “Never Quit” as well as a bald eagle in a traditional style tattoo design further embodies the American spirit.

“At Gerber, we thought the combination of Tim and Luke’s work would be the perfect showcase for products made in the USA,” said Todd Bischoff, Creative Director at Gerber. “Both self-made men, Luke and Tim’s collaboration on the project speaks to the hearts of creators and artists around the world. “

“I have been deeply influenced by music since I was little, and when the opportunity arose to work with Tim and Fender it was not obvious,” said Luke Wessman, legendary tattoo artist and designer. . “It’s always special to work with an artist and embody the tone and message of their work. It’s a great opportunity to show the collision of art and music.

Personalized products are no stranger to both brands. Gerber launched Gerber Custom on the brand’s website in Spring 2020, giving customers the flexibility to create their own unique combinations for Gerber’s most popular fixed and foldable knives. Fender also launched a custom guitar store in 1987 and became the world’s leading manufacturer of high quality custom instruments operating in Corona, California.
