    FYI, and you probably already know, Gruhn's in Nashville has had several collector grade Andersons for a little while. There are a couple of Cobra's there. I bought my Hollow Atom from that group of guitars a while back.

    Yes happy medium is what is seen often on the 24.75 scale necks. My Bob Cat has. 60’s vibe which I love!!! I live fatter necks. I once had a HM+30. There was some meat on that one.

    I'm not sure you have enough switching options on the T.

    That's what I thought.

    I e-mail Tom to question that same thing.

    I hope I didn't get cheated out of some extra switches.;)

    TX, you were killing me with that Hollow T on GAB, and you're killing me now. Beautiful guitar! I have never played a TA in person, I imagine I'm missing out!

    Changed the bridge to a H2+ and a VA in the middle.
    Finally sounds the way I'd hoped.

    I think you got the correct switches, but you're still going to have to pass some challenging written and practical exams to get a license from the state before playing in public. :D

    I'm liking the non fine tuner Floyd. If I order a TA I would definitely like to try one.

    These Teles are very different from each other in multiple ways.
    Weight, sound, feel... but 1 thing is consistent : the playability and quality.
