Pre-Owned Tom Anderson Icon Classic Black In Distress


Notify me when this product is available:

Here's a real rarity- a barely used Anderson! This one was ordered through us and traded back in for a T 2 months later. It wasn't right for its original owner but, man, it's a GREAT guitar. It weighs in at 7 pounds 1 ounce and sounds spectacular. 

Tone is big and smooth with just the right amount of bite on top and a nicely smokey gooey midrange. Through a clean amp the sound has the classic springy Strat chime but when distortion is introduced it doesn't get brittle or thin, it opens up! It sustains effortlessly and produces some gorgeous overtones. This guitar was optioned with the passive VA booster on a push/push tone knob so beefy P90-like chunk is on tap with no pedal required. It performs amazingly well at all gain levels providing depth and clarity no matter how hard you push the amp.

The 60s vibe neck profile has that classic early 60s feel but the 12-14" radius fingerboard with its heavy stainless steel frets provides for much lower action and far easier bending compared to vintage 7.25" radius and small frets. The neck is slightly chunky but never feels too big. 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.

Best of all you can get a Tom Anderson that's only on its second set of strings for $1000 less than it cost in September.
