The company was started in 1984 by Tom Anderson, who is regarded as one of the most respected names in the custom guitar market. Manufacturing hundreds of instruments per year, TAG have a reputation for consistently high build quality, superb playability and constant innovation in the land of tone. This particular model, finished in the iconic black and white "Bowling" design, is a 30-year commemorative reissue of one of the first TAG guitars ever made. With the impeccable craftsmanship that made Tom Anderson one of the standout names in the boutique industry, the guitar was so good that Metallica lead guitarist Kirk Hammett made the instrument a part of his arsenal - the guitar was used on the road and stage for years.

If you have been dreaming of the perfect guitar with the best elements of modern design paired with classic good looks, and killer vintage tone, TAG guitars is as good as it gets! Wonderfully complex harmonics practically jump off the guitar, and when strummed acoustically, it vibrates your whole hand. It has a great familiar midrange that makes it useful for all styles of music, and dynamics can be easily controlled and altered with the flick of the highly innovative Switcheroo switching system. The clarity and delicacy of the tone at low volumes also make this instrument perfect for studio work.

We have worked very closely with Tom Anderson to commission an exclusive, 3 PIECE limited run of the Commemorative Reissue, available only at DG!
