NGD – Tom Anderson Drop Top


My custom order Drop Top arrived yesterday, at long last. I ordered it through World Guitars in May, about a month before The Flood, and it was worth the wait (and alienating several friends by talking about it non-stop for the past 7 months).

I wanted the guitar to reflect the mix of new and old music that influences my playing, so it’s got a fairly modern aesthetic and slim/thin neck, but with vintage-voiced pickups and off-white accents.

It plays beautifully; almost feels as though the guitar is doing half the work for you it’s so effortless. Rings like a bell unplugged too. I haven’t had a chance to give it a proper go yet, because work, but hoping to rectify that asafp.

Merry Christmas, all!

Amazing!!! love it :) Congrats she's a beaut and I'm sure she sounds as good as she looks like every other tag


What a beautiful guitar! I got a DT in '94 & kept it for 18 years – only got rid of it because the PITA Floyd Rose was causing me to leave strings on for years as well as turn the wrong thing when tweaking tuning. I'll bet this one's even better. Play it in good health & spirits.

Congrats, I've got the same configuration, and it was an instant bell ringer. TA knows how to blend pups and build a clean machine.
