Tom Anderson Guitarworks

SKU: 39809

This guitar is a solo machine. It's neither shy nor understated visually or sonically. It combines focused bottom with crisp top end that's never shrill and a syrupy midrange that really sings. The H3 bridge humbucker really brings out the beauty in this beast- it's thick, full & warm with plenty of fluid sustain. The overtones are thick & rich but the fundamental never suffers. The SC1 neck & middle pickups breathe pure single coil sparkle in a hum-canceling package. This guitar will take you from SRV territory to modern heavy rock & fusion at the flick of a switch. It also does a really nice naturally compressed chicken pickin' clean.

And let's not forget about the cosmetics- the transparent purple finish possesses remarkable depth and clarity that shows off the broad swamp ash grain perfectly. It really pops under direct light and looks great under red or blue stage lights. It's light weight too! Just under 7 pounds.

The Anderson Classic is a sleek ergonomic masterpiece that makes long sets & sessions easy. It's a breeze to play and helps you get the best out of your playing. It has great balance on a strap or in your lap. The neck fills the palm nicely but never feels too big. The contoured heel provides easy access to the upper register. The wedge neck pocket provides more contact area between neck & body and literally locks the neck in place. Fretwork is immaculate & the Buzz Feiten tuning system insures that even the tightest chord clusters play in tune all the way up the neck. Fit & finish are absolutely flawless.
