Tom Anderson Icon Classic - Lake Placid Blue with Hard Shell Case

The Tom Anderson Icon Classic in Lake Placid Blue is not your run-of-the-mill vintage-inspired guitar. It's a breathtaking blend of timeless aesthetics and modern craftsmanship that pushes the boundaries of playability, tonality, and resonance. This isn't just a guitar; it's a work of art that pays homage to the iconic S-style body silhouette. With a full-sized body, top jack, and three numbered knobs, the Icon Classic exudes vintage charm while maintaining Anderson's legendary playability and tonal excellence.

Alder: The Heart of Vintage Tone

Crafted from alder, the Icon Classic Lake Placid Blue produces that classic "vintage tone." Expect a thick midrange character that's full in the low midrange while offering enough upper midrange clarity and articulation. It's a tonal canvas that's versatile enough to handle a wide range of playing styles and musical genres, making the Icon Classic a true sonic chameleon.

60s Vibe Neck: A Journey in Feel

The 60s Vibe neck with caramel maple construction defines comfort and character. It offers a unique depth profile, transitioning from medium-depth at the first frets to a substantial neck in the upper regions. The result? Effortless playability that caters to your every move. The wedge neck pocket enhances neck-body contact, providing exceptional stability and resonance. Now let's talk pickups....

At the bridge, the VA 7: Anderson's VA 7 pickup is a testament to their dedication to delivering vintage-inspired tones with a modern twist. This particular variant, the VA 7, boasts a slightly reduced pole piece stagger. This design choice enhances the pickup's ability to produce a fuller bottom end while minimizing the potential for string rattle. So, you can expect a punchy, articulate, and resonant tone from the bridge position, perfect for lead work and delivering that unmistakable vintage bite.

In the middle, the  VA 7R - the reverse-wound counterpart to the VA 7, specifically designed for hum-cancelling configurations. This reverse winding ensures that when combined with the VA 7 in the bridge, you get noiseless operation without sacrificing any of that vintage-inspired single-coil tone. It's all about clarity and eliminating unwanted noise, making it an ideal choice for pristine clean tones and versatile performance.

And at the neck, the TV 7 - tailor-made for T-style neck applications.  It's a true vintage-style single coil, and then some. With the TV 7, you'll experience a full-bodied sound characterized by a rich, round warmth and articulate highs. It's perfect for those expressive, soulful melodies and chords that need to shine.

Together, these pickups create a harmonious blend of vintage-inspired tones, ensuring that your Tom Anderson Icon Classic delivers exceptional versatility and sonic excellence for any style of music you choose to explore.
