Nashville, TN – June 7, 2011 


Ampeg has announced its title sponsorship of Guitar Player’s Guitar Superstar 2011 which will be the first public live performance for Ampeg’s new GVT all-tube guitar amps. This event is also the culmination of a Facebook contest by Ampeg where one band will open the event with their winning performance.


“Everyone’s buzzing about Ampeg’s return to guitar amplification with our new GVT amps. The huge number of contest submissions from guitarists has been overwhelming and speaks to the brand’s draw among guitar players worldwide,” remarked Ampeg’s Media & PR Manager, Shaunna Thompson.


The finalists and grand prize winner of Ampeg’s Facebook contest will win an all-expense-paid trip to Nashville, a performance at the Superstar event at Summer NAMM with a full stage of Ampeg backline, and free Ampeg gear including the new GVT52-112, GVT52-112EW and a Portaflex bass rig.
