Tom Anderson Classic Shorty - Bora to Trans Blue Burst with Hard Shell Case


Discover Your Dream Guitar: The Classic Shorty

Unlock the vintage fantasy with the Tom Anderson Classic Shorty—a dream instrument that blends timeless allure with modern excellence. Crafted to capture the essence of classic guitars, this model defies the myth that the perfect vintage guitar is unattainable. With its ethereal tones, exceptional playability, and stunning design, the Classic Shorty is here to fulfill your musical aspirations.

Vintage Vibes with Modern Craftsmanship

The Classic Shorty starts with a carefully selected Swamp Ash body finished in a striking Bora to Transparent Blue Burst. Swamp Ash is celebrated for its rich and complex tonal characteristics, offering a blend of delicate, airy sound with pronounced lows and sparkling highs. The Even-Taper +.030 neck profile (.840" at the first fret to .900" at the 12th fret) provides a sleek, fast playing experience with consistent depth, enhancing comfort across the entire fretboard. The wedge neck pocket design increases neck-to-body contact, resulting in a more secure fit and improved resonance.

Exceptional Pickups for a Classic Sound

Equipped with SF1 and HN2+ pickups, the Classic Shorty delivers both single-coil clarity and medium-hot hum-canceling tones. The SF1 pickups in the neck and middle positions offer classic single-coil sounds with a balanced, articulate response, while the HN2+ in the bridge position provides a punchy, powerful tone perfect for solos and heavy riffs. The 5-way switch with a built-in splitter offers versatile sound options, from traditional single-coil tones to more modern, high-output settings.

Superior Hardware and Design Features

The Classic Shorty features a Vintage Tremolo bridge for smooth and expressive bending. Chrome hardware complements the guitar's elegant aesthetic, while the G&G hard shell case and Anderson strap included in the package ensure that you have everything you need for transport and play. The Buzz Feiten Tuning System is installed to provide enhanced tuning stability and intonation.
