BIG shout-out to Tim @ Morgan Music for making a great deal happen. Gave me a nice trade-in opportunity (a Fender The Edge Deluxe amp) towards this Anderson: https://reverb.com/item/29948959-to...rdtail-shoreline-gold-big-neck?show_sold=true Man, is this baby a winner. My previous experience with a TA was kinda "meh." This is entirely different. She arrived with a VERY good set-up, with (I'm pretty sure) a set of 9s, and just a smidge of fret buzz. Low, extremely playable action. I put on a set 10s, and, overnight, the additional tension added a hair of relief to the neck, and now the set-up is perfect. Love it when that happens! I'm a big-neck fan, and this one is SO comfy. I'm feeling a generous amount of shoulder, to make the .970" (12th fret) depth feel even more substantial. She's got an SC1- pickup in the neck and middle, and I love 'em. Truly noiseless, with a slight "rolled-off" tone--a little edge taken off the top end, and I LOVE that sound. I can understand how people say that TAs have a decidedly "modern" feel, and, for me, this is all for the good. I've never been on a tone quest for a particular vintage Strat sound, but I do know a tone that works for me when I hear one. And I'm all for stellar playability!
