He started amassing a great collection of some of the coolest Ibanez guitars from the Golden Era, JEM, UV, JS, etc., always with an eye for quality, condition, and rarity.Fred is a dealer and collector in Pennsylvania Folk Antiques, of extremely good quality.He is also a savvy collector of just about anything cool.Fred, John Cowan, and I got together with our DNA collections [at that time] and shot the pictures of the group of 29 together shown below. He ended up with 16 DNA's at the peak but was DNA heavy and balanced the collection by selling off 10 DNA's, which ended up being the Koch Collection - Part 1 sale.
