Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to be an official Tom Anderson Guitarworks dealer. These are up there with the best of the best in the bolt-on guitar field. They're a shop favorite and for good reason. Meant for the shredder that wants to hit it hard with some gain but also needs a guitar that cleans up nicely, this Raven looks edgy, feels amazing, and sounds absolutely killer.

Offset guitars are as popular these days as they've ever been, it seems. And we've got the one to rule them all. It is truly no exaggeration to say that every Anderson guitar that has come through our shop has been jaw-droppingly beautiful and amazing to play. They've quickly grown to become a shop favorite and we're pretty much all of the belief that "Tom Anderson can do no wrong." This Raven Classic only solidifies this unyielding faith and confidence in Tom Anderson. The guitar is made for the workhorse musician that needs something masterfully crafted, extremely versatile, and yet simple to use.

The pickups give you an immensely versatile tonal pallet. The guitar is certainly made with a rocker in mind, but the tone remains musical and balanced whether clean or distorted. The humbuckers will give you rich and meaty tones that remain punchy and articulate even when saturated heavily. There are also 2 "cut switches" that help give the humbuckers a more vintage vibe with a more airy and vocal-like top-end.

This is a true player's instrument. Ready for the studio or the stage, this could very well be your new Excalibur and be the only guitar you need to unsheath to slay your next gig or session. 

Manufacturer's Description

The Raven Classic

The offset styled guitar that was designed from the outset to play, exquisitely well.

Your most profound offset style guitar dreams have become a reality. Now you can step on stage with the avant garde look of an offset and have the Anderson assurance that you are strapped into a unique instrument that will perform peerlessly in your hands.

  • Balanced, lightweight and stable, a joy to strap on and play all night long.
  • Not over-sized or undersized but a body of just right proportions. it immediately feels like your old, best friend, that is full of brand new excitement and experiences.
  • A solid foundation supports unparalleled tone and resonance, where every sonic nuance rings out with alacrity.

As usual, our reliable intonation and tuning stability makes Raven a joy to play with any and every style of music. No worries, just plug and play with wild abandon.

The Pickups

HC1: More neck humbucker saturation, output, and smoothness than HC1- while still retaining equilibrium for the neck position perfection. The quintessential mate for the medium-hot HC2 in the bridge position.
HC3: The HC Series solution to hot output, with vintage character still nicely intact. Just pushes the front of the amp a touch more or when a bit more musical muscle is needed.
