Tom Anderson Classic S - Olympic White with Hard Shell Case



Unlocking Vintage Dreams: Tom Anderson Classic S

Rediscovering Vintage Bliss

The Tom Anderson Classic S redefines the notion of vintage guitars, turning what was once a distant dream into a tangible reality. Breaking through the misconception that vintage instruments are unattainable, this guitar brings forth a level of playability, tone, and affordability previously thought impossible. Crafted to perfection, it embodies the essence of a true vintage instrument while offering modern performance and reliability.

Premium Body Wood for Timeless Tone

The foundation of the Classic S is its meticulously selected Alder body, renowned for its rich and balanced tonal characteristics. Alder delivers full-bodied, boosted low-mid frequencies with prominent upper-mid presence, making it the ideal choice for single-coil tones that cut through the mix effortlessly. Alternatively, the option of Swamp Ash offers an open, ethereal tone with delicate highs and rich lows, providing versatility and sonic depth.

Neck Design and Pickup Configuration

Featuring the iconic 62 Pete Neck, the Classic S offers a comfortable and vintage-inspired playing experience. The neck profile gradually increases in depth from the first to the twelfth fret, offering a substantial yet comfortable feel across the fretboard. Equipped with SF1 pickups in the neck and middle positions and an H2+ humbucker in the bridge, this guitar delivers a diverse range of tones, from vintage single-coil sounds to powerful, full-bodied humbucker tones.

Innovative A-Wedgie Neck Joint

Revolutionizing traditional guitar construction, the Classic S incorporates the A-Wedgie neck joint, a groundbreaking design exclusive to Tom Anderson guitars. This innovative joint ensures a solid and stable connection between the neck and body, eliminating the need for traditional neck bolts and preventing lateral shifting. The result is improved resonance, sustain, and overall playability.

Enhanced Tuning Stability with Buzz Feiten System

Every Tom Anderson guitar comes equipped with the Buzz Feiten Design Tuning System, offering unparalleled tuning accuracy and stability. This system, combined with slightly altered bridge intonation offsets, ensures that chords sound more in tune with each other, providing a more harmonious playing experience.
