The Jesus Lizard and Tomahawk riffer reveals how working as a setup tech for Gibson informed the design of his signature aluminum axes from Electrical Guitar Company.

When The Jesus Lizard was performing 200+ shows a year in the ’90s, Denison rarely played with effects. Part of it was because the songs rarely needed any animation on top of his blunt, screwy riffs, but the other part was because lead singer David Yow (and eventually the crowd) terrorized the stage in a way that would leave floor-based gear in disrepair. Tomahawk was a more colorful affair requiring some movement to his playing, and even now with TJL he’s sprinkled in boost for solos, modulation (chorus and tremolo) for chords, and reverb for space and air. And all those spices and more live inside the Line 6 Helix.
