Tom Anderson T Icon - Daphne Blue with Hard Shell Case

Tom Anderson T Icon - Daphne Blue with Hard Shell Case

From Anderson:

 

Sharing all the same elevated performance benefits of our venerated T-Classic model the T-Icon also features a much more iconic 3-saddle bridge with a baseplate design that surrounds the angled single coil-sized bridge pickup.

But an Anderson T-Icon guitar could never settle for just any 3-saddle bridge to satisfy mere looks. Our Traditional 3-Saddle bridge is exquisitely built and fully compensated.

And what does that mean It means that this bridge has a compensated (corrected) saddle design for uncompromisingly accurate intonation and ridiculously in-tune playinglike each and every Anderson guitar ever created.

This takes the vintage experience to a whole new level as accurate intonation not only means more in-tune playing but also much richer and fuller tonality with greater sustain as more sympathetic frequencies harmonize rather than contrast.

This model in particular rocks a perfect high-gloss Daphne Blue finish on an alder body (paired with a just-right mint white pickguard) and a Caramel maple 62 Pete neck. The wedge neck pocket provides more contactareabetween neck & body and literally locks the neck in place.

At the headstock are Anderson locking tuners and if you carry on down across the medium-jumbo frets you'll find an HC1- humbucker -succulent and sweet and clear throaty and full without being overly bloated. Next stop is the TV3+ for commanding single coil tones. Mix in the quintessential Buzz Feiten tuning system to ensure only the absolute best in intonation combined with that comped saddle and you'll find you won't need to do ANY compensating of your own.

The experts on the AGW benches have done it again.

 

Thanks Tom!

As always this guitar ships fully insured with signature required.
