An Anderson S-style with the traditional looks and modern Tom Anderson improvements just like you'd expect!
This Anderson is just simply inspiring. The moment she's in your hands the even tapered maple neck just feels like home. The satin finish on the Translucent Surf Green is tasteful as can be and really lends itself to the more traditional and vintage look. The modern enhancements you'd expect from an Anderson are there as well with the likes of autosplitting position 4, split 5, and the VA Boost with Push/Pull switching. The swamp ash body gives you all the bright bite you'd want in a s-style guitar and with such a masterful build the product that's left is just incredible. This guitar is the total package.
Magnificence in playability is an undeniable requirement for complete guitar fulfillment—the very foundation of every Anderson guitar—unparalleled playability.
But for some players, bringing forth their vintage vision also requires iconic styling cues—most notability, the inclusion of:
Three numbered knobs, a top jack, full-sized S-body and 1 rear strap button.
In the past the dilemma has been: How can I possibly give up pristine Anderson playability, full Major 3rd bends and ridiculously rich, multidimensional chording that rings out so wonderfully in tune? Playing an Anderson Guitar is like nothing else—to be sure.
So, so good!
But…when no one is looking and I close my eyes I sometimes still see myself as a vintage rocker. Why must I give up one for the other? In this day in age of "cake and eat it too,” there must be a way.
And the answer is now: Icon Classic
