    Beautiful guitar, and Anderson quality is second to none. I think you are going to love it.

    Cool looking axe, congrats! I think the Ms are great. I'm enjoying my HDT with three Ms quite a bit.

    Thanks for the responses. My initial impression is amazement. The tonal range and versatility of this guitar is far greater than any other guitar I've ever owned.

    Did the same thing a few months ago. Went to the store for no pressing reason...came back with my fourth Anderson. Hell, why not...always could use some new t-shirts.

    Congrats on scoring that killer axe! I had a Hollow Cobra with the minis and it was a great sounding guitar and versatile to boot. Best of luck with yours; Tom and co. make a great guitar.

    Expensive? Not really because I get a quality guitar along with it. I get straps but mostly extra t-shirts...my buddy owns the local dealership. I also tend to get relatively...I know, it's all relative...good pricing as well.

    I played a Hollow T with essentially the same specs (might have had a mahogany back) about a year ago at a shop and still remember it as one of best electric guitars I've played, period. Those Anderson mini-hums are killer and the third pickup and switching adds huge versatility.

    Long time Anderson fan sends much love. They are addictive.
    They set the bar for ergonomics and playability. Hard to go
    back to more traditional instruments after playing them.
    I dig the new minis. They have a cool voice. A big, fat,
    yet modern-sounding Strat vibe. Not like a Gibson mini at all.

    Here's my latest TA. A Hollow swamp ash DT Classic with a custom
    guard loaded with Lollar Blondes. I'm done with Strats.

    Nice Inlay work. I didn't realize Tom did anything other than the standard dots. Nice guitar too!

    Thanks everyone for the kind words; I'm really excited about this one.

    The dot cluster inalys mean it was one of Tom's personal guitars I believe.

    Tom builds a great machine, I dig the color on that one, does it get neck heavy?
