    I've seen topics about Suhrs and PRS, why not create one about Tom Anderson? They are the best guitars available today.
    So there is, your Anderson topic, where you can show yours to us.
    Here is mine:
    [​IMG]
    1998 Tom Anderson Classic swamp ash body, maple neck, brazilian rosewood fingerboard, grover tuners, H01 on the neck, SA 1R on the middle, H 02+ on the bridge, sunken Floyd Rose, switcheroo switch sistem, Buzz Feiten tuning system.
    Currently is my favorite guitar.

    Unfortunately I'm currently Anderson-less, having just sold mine on ebay. I'm waiting for a koa-topped HDT with 3Ms and a solid RW neck to be finished some time within the next few weeks.

    hehehe...enjoy that, mate...you'll LOVE those M's....definitely my favourite Andy pickup yet.

    I'd be interested in doing another cobra in Tiger Eye Burst with M's (M1, M1, M3).

    Thanks, Dave. I'm sure I'll love it. I'm still a little unsure if going with all 3Ms was better than going 2Ms and a full HB in the bridge. I think overall from what I've heard of the Ms, I'll like them better. I'm not playing much that requires a full on bridge HB these days.

    How's the new HDT with the bigger neck working out?

    the neck is actually about the same as the Cobra...and considering i like the cobra neck, this is a good thing. I never paid too much attention to Anderson's standard sizing, etc. so, i didn't know what to expect. that being said, i actually prefer the mahogany neck to the maple one...*shrug*

    overall, a very good guitar and little bassy right now...trying to tweak 'round some stuff to get it a little more bright.
    here's a quicky recording with a FD2 and some delay on that guitar.

    Keep this pictures coming, is very good to see how nice guitars Andersons are.
    I don't understand how Tom Anderson guitars are underrated.
    Appears to me that TGP members prefers Suhrs, Chapins, etc.
    For strat and tele type guitars nothing beats Andersons.

    I don't understand their unpopularity here either compared to the other brands you mentioned. I don't really pit one against the other though. All those guitars are great. Barring some huge revolution in technology and design, I don't think better guitars than all of those can be built. They're all such high quality that it's pure preference at that point.

    Dave, I'm on a Linux box right now and I don't have the plugin installed that will allow me to play .wma files. I'll check out that clip when I get on a Windows box.

    Cheers,

    Dave

    Edit - Found out mplayer plays .wma. Clip sounds pretty good (though I think you mixed it a little hot -- was there breakup, or is it my speakers?). I can tell the guitar sounds nice though. Doesn't sound too dark to me.

    that's the standard channel of the FD2 straight to the board...very touch sensitive, i might add.

    I have the exact same spec'ed HDT being made (basswood back probably being the only difference). Can I see more pictures of this beauty of yours?
