Tom Anderson Classic Shorty - Arctic White

This guitar does not disappoint. For starters, it's got a Gibson scale length 24.75" instead of the normal 25.5" scale length. The result is an extremely comfortable and sweet sounding instrument. The shorter scale moves the midrange Q a little bit lower in the tonal spectrum. If you're a Gibson player who's looking for a different flavor, you'll feel right at home with this instrument. Imagine being able to get all the tonal versatility of a super strat melded with the warmth of an SG. But make no mistake, this guitar is a Tom Anderson through and through, from the innovation, to the superior playability and the superb attention to detail. 

Chords are big and clear in the first position with incredible clarity and note separation. Single notes seem to ring forever with effortless sustain. When even moderate gain is introduced, overtones seem to jump right out of the guitar. The H1 neck pickup provides classic fat humbucking tones but still chimes when split. The HN2+ is a fire-breathing dragon- punchy and muscular with plenty of cut yet still very musical. At a mere 7 pounds 5 ounces, it's nice and light and feels great whether it's on a strap, or on 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.
