"I've been a guitar player for 37 years and for a long time i've been dreaming about doing my own signature model with everything I know about the instrument and everything i look for in the perfect guitar so when i started working with the amazing German brand VGS last year i quickly knew i had found the company i always looked for. After settling on the shape and look of the guitar, which didn't take long, i had two simple demands...i need Schaller tuners and locking tremolo system and EMG pick ups!!!. I've used EMG and all my main guitars since 1985 and besides giving me the perfect sound i hear in my head they never fail, in my work i need to rely on the best i can have so i can deliver the best i can be for the people who require the best they can get!!! I proudly use the signature set of my dear friend and amazing player Steve Lukather on my signature VGS TD-1 Radioactive model (2 SLV +1 85)" - Tommy Denander
