The Tom Anderson Icon Classic: A Vintage Masterpiece

Experience unparalleled playability, tonality, and resonance with the Tom Anderson Icon Classic. Far from being a mere copycat, the Icon Classic elevates your playing experience to new heights, delivering giant vintage tones that exceed expectations. Designed for uncompromising musicians, this guitar offers a perfect blend of nostalgia and innovation, setting new standards for vintage guitars.

Swamp Ash Body: Vintage Tone Reinvented

Crafted from Swamp Ash, a revered "vintage wood" that gained popularity in single-cutaway guitars during the early '50s, the Icon Classic boasts a distinct tonal character. Its body produces a scooped midrange tone with robust low-end frequencies and sparkling highs. The lightweight and porous nature of Swamp Ash enriches the timbre, delivering a musical and multifaceted tone with an abundance of soft, sparkling highs and rich, resonant lows.

62 Pete Neck: Unparalleled Comfort and Performance

The 62 Pete neck of the Icon Classic features an early 60s Vibe profile, offering increased depth as your hand moves from the 1st to the 12th fret. With a medium-depth taper at the first few frets that transitions into a substantial neck in the upper regions, this neck profile ensures optimum comfort and playability across the fretboard. Additionally, the neck-to-body union is reinforced by Anderson's revolutionary A-Wedgie neck joint, providing unprecedented stability and resonance.

Pickups, Switching, and Buzz Feiten Tuning System: Enhanced Performance and Versatility

  • Neck Pickup: PH 1 Soapbar: Delivering vintage-level richness and fullness without unwanted hum, the PH 1 Soapbar pickup offers a wonderfully rich and full tone. With a DC Resistance of 13.5 kΩ and precise EQ controls, this pickup ensures exceptional clarity and warmth.

  • Bridge Pickup: TV 3: The TV 3 pickup provides commanding yet true single-coil tones, perfect for a variety of playing styles. With a DC Resistance of 17.5 kΩ and finely tuned EQ controls, including bass, mid, and treble, the TV 3 pickup delivers articulate and dynamic sound with enhanced versatility.

  • Custom Switching for Versatile Tonal Options: The Icon Classic features a custom switching system that offers five distinct pickup configurations for unparalleled tonal flexibility. Position 1 activates the neck pickup in series, while Position 2 engages the neck pickup in parallel. Positions 3 and 4 combine the neck and bridge pickups in series and parallel, respectively, providing unique tonal variations. Position 5 activates the bridge pickup. Additionally, Tone 1 controls the neck pickup or both pickups when both are selected, while Tone 2 adjusts the bridge pickup. Positions 1 and 2 interact with the back pickup when in Positions 3 or 4, further expanding the tonal palette.

  • Buzz Feiten Tuning System: Equipped with the Buzz Feiten Design Tuning System, the Icon Classic ensures precise intonation and tuning stability like never before. By implementing a structural neck change and slightly altered bridge intonation offsets, this system allows chords to sound more in tune with each other, enhancing overall playability and tonal coherence.
