Drop Top Upside Down Ginger Surf

From Anderson:

Before the introduction of the magnificent Drop Top in 1990, the number of "S" style guitars that had a maple top that was “dropped” to create a comfortable forearm contour were exactly zero. As a result of this design, we've chosen a body top thickness of 3/16 of an inch, which actually enhances and enrichens the sonic character of the instrument. The result is a guitar that not only plays effortlessly, is extremely comfortable, and sounds amazing but is so darn good looking that if you don't dress well it just may upstage you. 

This beauty sports a caramel maple Even Taper neck and rosewood fingerboard - The wedge neck pocket provides more contact area between the neck & parota body; it literally locks the neck in place. Mix in the quintessential Buzz Feiten tuning system to ensure only the absolute best in intonation.

SC 1: Slightly more than vintage level, single coil sound, hum-canceling.

HC 2+: A medium-hot output package with all the vintage flavor firmly in place, wound to create a full bouquet of tonalities. Muscular mids with a smattering of lush and soft highlights so it is impressively musical, with never a hint of that “oops, I accidentally sat on a duck,” tone. Beautiful from all tonal angles, with a bit more oomph across the tonal spectrum.

Control it all with a five way switch and see why we here at Five Star fall in love with each and every guitar we see from the AGW benches. Another classic for the books! 

Thanks, Tom!
