Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to offer up this beauty from our friends over at Tom Anderson Guitarworks.

Anderson guitars are a shop favorite and for good reason. Every instrument they build is a bullseye. This one has a cool look to it. It's black with red dog hair and we had them put the Anderson logo on the headstock in red as well. It looks, sounds, and plays beautifully. The HC1+ and HC3+ pickups are definitely designed to have some extra punch to them and they can handle high-gain settings with ease. This is a rocker's axe through and through but with the versatility to clean up nicely as well. 

The neck is a perfect mix of slim without being paper-thin. The even-taper shape is smooth and, combined with the compound radius of the fretboard, allows for effortless playing wherever you happen to be on the neck. We get this neck shape on a lot of the guitars we order because it seems to work universally for so many people that are looking for something slim and fast. The fretwork is immaculate and the recessed tremolo allows you to drop the action really low without having to worry about fret buzz (of course, that'll also be dependent on how hard you strum, but it's really quite impressive how low it'll go). We gave this bad boy a floyd rose locking tremolo so you never have to worry about your strings going out of tune when using the whammy bar. This really is a swiss army knife kind of guitar with the kind of playability that is nothing short of angelic and divine.

Designed with the guitarist that likes to rock hard but needs the flexibility to handle any genre of music, this is Anderson is a thing of beauty and ready for the limelight. May your Angel protect you and guide you on your rock odyssey!
