    Building Foundations. At the beginning of the millennium, the Vertigo Series continued their successful presence and evolution in the expanding guitar market, gaining a new generation of followers. The Vertigo Deluxe was revamped with see-thru burst finishes and flame maple tops, giving it a more modern look that enhanced the body shape and broadening the spectrum of colors and variations of the series.

    Many well-known guitarists came seeking a Vertigo guitar around this time, including Riggs of Rob Zombie band, Mike Clark of Suicidal Tendencies, Tommy Victor of Prong, Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, Davey Johnstone of Elton John Band and Kevin Quinn of American Pearl.

    Tommy Victor, one of the most influential rock musicians of the late 1980's and early 1990's, lead singer and guitarist for the crossover thrash/industrial metal band PRONG that he founded in New York in 1986, was one of the most notable Vertigo users.

    In the late 1980's Tommy worked as a sound engineer at the trendy venue, CBGB in New York City, when PRONG's fist two independent albums attracted the attention of Epic Records, who signed the trio in 1989. After the release of Rude Awakening in 1996, PRONG disbanded and Tommy moved to Los Angeles. Since then, he has sporadically toured and released new PRONG material, while worked alongside rock musicians including Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, Trent Reznor and Glenn Danzig. Tommy has toured and recorded with Ministry and Danzig. He has also provided guest vocals for the Soulfly album Omen. Latest PRONG album Carved Into Stone features Fernandes signature artist Tony Campos on bass.

    Tommy was amongst the first American guitarists to pick up a Vertigo H-65 in 1997 while in Japan, making it one of his main guitars live and in the studio.
