So I picked up a Tom Anderson strat for the first time at GC last weekend. Played AMAZING. It's a newer 2018 model. Hard to describe but it was just super playable and I could really dig in on it. So I had to buy it, unfortunately I have to wait until this weekend to pick it up because of the 30 day hold.
Then I was at a different store last night and see another used Anderson strat hanging there. I pick it up and this one plays just as well! I look at the serial and this ones from 1993.

Point of this rant is the two Andersons I've played, 25 years apart from each other in build date, both had the same amazing playability, resonance, and just got along with me so well. So now i'm thinking about just ordering a custom so I can get exactly what I want. maybe a pro am or something. Does anyone have the same experience with Anderson guitars? Any experience with the custom shop? Usually I don't like to order custom because you never know if its going to be a dud, or not as great and consistent as the guitar you might already have from a manufacturer.

Thanks

I had an Anderson a long time ago. It was a fantastic guitar. If it had a Floyd Rose in it, I probably would have kept it. I have yet to hear of anyone getting a dud Anderson. Order with confidence!

I played one in my local shop a few months ago and had a similar experience. It resonated, especially noticeable when unplugged, like no other guitar I've played. I felt it played super easy for me too. The two employees that work at this shop, and a friend of theirs that hangs there all the time, all own multiple Andersons and can't praise them enough.

I'm gonna have them bring in a few of their personal guitars to let me try so I can decide if I want to order an Anderson or a Suhr.

My Anderson will go to the grave with me. It's a '93 too!

Anderson Guitars are just that amazing. At times I wonder why Suhr has litterally tons of supporters and fans and Anderson has not.

Andersons have ruined all other guitars for me. Tone, playability, and workmanship are consistently off the charts good. Be sure to check out their Cobra model.

There is something special about Tom's selection of wood. Every guitar was resonant and have ''worn in'' feel like You play it for years. I can't say that about every Suhr I have played. Imho basswood/maple is brilliant combo when it's done well.
I had 1992 Drop Top with Floyd with Switcharoo and stupidly sold it with vision to get something better (damned GAS) and there is no such a thing. Tom just makes best superstrats :)

Andersons are amazing. They play so well it feels wrong. My order was basically a 4 month wait to the day and it was a pretty custom spec.

Every Tom Anderson is made to order. He doesn't build any just to build them. He has a custom order for every single one he makes so everyone is a "custom".

Ive owned 9 and still have 2 currently.

Whats this "30 day hold" you speak of?

Used gear is held for 30 days before it's officially for sale to try to sort out stolen gear.

They're not supposed to. Maybe it's a state by state law? I know at my GC all new used inventory is on the back wall tagged 30 day hold.

I am a huge Anderson fanboy. I ordered my first custom spec'ed guitar from them back in late 2009. I haven't looked back since. Nicest bunch of guys you'll ever work with. Tom, Roy and family love what they do and it shows. I remember back around 2007/2008 Tom was considering scaling way back and possibly shutting down the shop. He was so involved in every part of the process that he was burning out. His buddies at Mesa Boogie (Doug West, etc) visited him and helped him find a better way to do things without having to touch every part of the build process. He and the shop are doing great now!

They only build about 700 guitars a year and, like someone said above, each of those guitars has an order attached to it. The one thing I can 100% confidently say is that Tom's biggest driving force is consistency. I'm not saying there isn't going to be a guitar that will fit your needs but he works tirelessly to make sure every guitar they build is consistent with the standards they hold themselves to. I currently own 5 TAGs (just sold one unfortunately) and I love and play them all often. I have custom spec'ed and purchased them all sight unseen. I have zero hesitation doing that moving forward as I have found the specs that fit my hands perfectly. I plan to spec a T Icon later this year.

What works for me may not work for all but I love Anderson Guitarworks! I will always be an endorser for them not just because of the guitars but the people as well.

I haven't been able to find a Suhr I really fell in love with, but that could just be my hands and preferences!

It is a state by state and sometimes even city by city law. It's a new law in our area so GC had to start holding things for 30 days, at least here they will let you try it and buy it but you can't pick it up until day 31. They usually just do a layaway for $1 for 31 days so it comes off the floor and doesn't get beat up while you wait.

They can put them up for sale and even sell them. They can't be taken home until the hold is up though which is why the OP had to wait.

I looked up the specs on the '93 I was playing and it was swamp ash, the one I bought was alder. will definitely have to try to play a swamp ash if I get the chance

That's awesome, good to know they take pride in consistency. I definitely get the vibe that Tom puts quality of quantity which is what we all want!
The one I bought is an even taper and it felt perfect, that may just be my spec! New Anderson fanboy here for sure

Thinking something like this for a custom build, but not an angel, a pro am probably. And not a big Floyd guy, so maybe a regular trem or hardtail

I have a Drop Top, Pro Am, Classic S, Classic T and a Bulldog and they all have the Even Taper neck. Extremely comfortable on my hands. I can't imagine finding another neck carve that works so well for me. The fact that Tom is so accessible on the phone or on the Anderson Forum is another great point. He is one of the sweetest guys you'll ever meet. He always replies and provides a lot of great insight to why they do what they do. Whenever I've needed a replacement part or something done he has gone above and beyond to take care of me and anyone else.

I ordered an Anderson on Halloween that will be here later this month. It was scheduled for a January ship date and through Anderson heard it was in paint around mid December. The dealer said Anderson always hits the build month. Unreal!

I ordered through Distinctive Guitar in Milwaukee who gave me one of their upcoming build dates. For comparison, I have a Suhr on order at Matt’s and called them first. When I asked them about their next Anderson build slot it was April/May if I remember right. Just sharing that as it pays to ask more than one dealer.

The Anderson on order is a Pro Am being made that will look exactly like the the white one at the bottom of the link below. I never saw a guitar that I had to have it until I saw this one...Bad ass! I changed some specs (+.100 even taper neck, jumbo frets, boost circuit, etc). I have spoken with the dealer at Distinctive and Roy at Anderson. Both have been awesome to work with thus far!

https://www.andersonguitarworks.com/gui ... ber-8-2018

Finally, to show how the Anderson people roll, I traded Brad for a new Anderson when he had his shop. When it arrived it had really bad fret sprout. I contacted Tom and he had me ship it back on his dime and had it back to me in two weeks even though the issue happened at the dealer. Total class act.

Not only has every Anderson I’ve played been incredible, but I’ve spoke to Tom a few times and he is as nice as it gets. I would not hesitate to get one of his guitars.

This thread is fuckin killing me. I really wasn't ready to order an Anderson, but now I'm on the verge of just saying fuck it and ordering up sooner than later :bash:

I have owned a bunch and played a bunch more. They have all been absolutely top-notch in every way. Criminally underrated. I would buy one again in a heartbeat.

I ordered an Anderson on Halloween that will be here later this month. It was scheduled for a January ship date and through Anderson heard it was in paint around mid December. The dealer said Anderson always hits the build month. Unreal!

I ordered through Distinctive Guitar in Milwaukee who gave me one of their upcoming build dates. For comparison, I have a Suhr on order at Matt’s and called them first. When I asked them about their next Anderson build slot it was April/May if I remember right. Just sharing that as it pays to ask more than one dealer.

The Anderson on order is a Pro Am being made that will look exactly like the the white one at the bottom of the link below. I never saw a guitar that I had to have it until I saw this one...Bad ass! I changed some specs (+.100 even taper neck, jumbo frets, boost circuit, etc). I have spoken with the dealer at Distinctive and Roy at Anderson. Both have been awesome to work with thus far!

Finally, to show how the Anderson people roll, I traded Brad for a new Anderson when he had his shop. When it arrived it had really bad fret sprout. I contacted Tom and he had me ship it back on his dime and had it back to me in two weeks even though the issue happened at the dealer. Total class act.


That’s awesome man I actually saw that guitar on the site and loved it! You getting it with a normal trem like that? I actually think it’d be badass in Hardtail.

This thread is fuckin killing me. I really wasn't ready to order an Anderson, but now I'm on the verge of just saying fuck it and ordering up sooner than later :bash:


Same man. Same. You guys have gone done it! Now I have to sell something so I can order a custom Anderson

Yeah Anderson makes great stuff. Tom Anderson and John Suhr are friends and their guitars do have lot's of similarities. I did find a difference in their pickups.

Thinking something like this for a custom build, but not an angel, a pro am probably. And not a big Floyd guy, so maybe a regular trem or hardtail

Do it! Love the vibe on that one. Even better would be pro am, HSS pickup config, minus the floating bridge.

That white one caught my eye too. I was going to grab it from GC in Nashville, but I was told it was being sold to Peter Frampton.

Did you go with the short scale, like the one in the link? Post some pics when it arrives.

I went with long scale. I added jumbo frets, VA Boost and +.100 even taper making it something like .91-.97 if I remember right. Oddly, the one in the pic isn’t white according to Anderson and said it wa a trans blonde. It looks white in the pic so I also did it in trans white with the bar set-up for a tiny bit of float.

Roy at Anderson did mention Peter Frampton was going to get it but took a day or two too long and it was sold to someone else.

Will definitely post pictures. It should ship by end of month. Not sure how it came up but my birthday is this month (Jan 18) and the serial number will be 1-18-19. I thought that was a nice/quirky little touch.

I have two Andersons. For me, they are the best guitars, without any doubt. They are actually made about 10 miles from me.
