Tom Anderson Drop Top Classic - Natural to Purple Burst with Hard Shell Case

Classic Elegance Meets Tonal Versatility:

The Tom Anderson Drop Top Classic in Natural to Purple Burst is a strikingly beautiful electric guitar that marries classic aesthetics with an intricate tonal palette. This instrument is aptly named "Drop Top Classic" because it not only boasts an eye-catching appearance but also delivers a tonal quality that pays homage to classic guitar tones. The pickguard, an emblem of tradition, plays a pivotal role in shaping the guitar's sound, creating a tone that resonates with aficionados of classic music. The Drop Top Classic stands out with its radiant book-matched flame maple top, which is expertly bent (or "dropped") over a carefully selected tonewood body. This craftsmanship not only provides a visually stunning appearance but also creates a smooth and comfortable forearm contour, all while staying true to the traditional pickguard styling.

Tonal Richness and Pickup Precision:

The Drop Top Classic features an Even-Taper neck profile, ensuring a sleek and consistent playing experience from the nut to the 12th fret. The wedge neck pocket enhances the neck-body contact, locking the neck securely in place. This guitar is equipped with a set of versatile pickups that contribute to its rich tonal spectrum:

  • Neck Pickup (H1): The H1 humbucker offers full, throaty neck tones that are open, clear, and rich. It handles split-coil configurations exceptionally well and provides a balanced complement to the bridge pickup.

  • Middle Pickup (SF1): The SF1 single-coil pickup delivers vintage-level output with slight overwinding, producing a hum-canceling, versatile sound that excels in middle positions.

  • Bridge Pickup (HN2+): The HN2+ offers medium-hot output with added midrange complexity. It provides ample power and saturation while maintaining tonal clarity.

With a 5-way switching system and a splitter, you can easily access a broad range of tones, from classic vintage to modern power. 


Original G&G hard shell case and Anderson strap are included.


Another absolute winner from the Anderson benches. Thanks, Tom!
