    That sounds like it will be a great axe; the roundback neck carve is my favorite Anderson neck. Be sure to post pics and a full report. Congrats and best of luck with it; Anderson's are killer guitars.

    By the title I thought this was some sort of warning to us all to watch out for mass Bruno recommendations and such. :)

    Nice guitar! Love the color with the tortoise pickguard. I love my TAG's (Classic and Hollow T w/ contours). These guitars really do approach perfection in fit, finish and playability. Have fun with your new guitar.

    Very nice classy looking guitar. I had one in Black Cherry Metallic, great color.
    I loved that 62 roundback neck too!

    I know its just personal opinion, but IMHO, the tortoiseshell guard was better, althouh there's certainly nothing wrong with the mint.

    I've been considering an Anderson but I hate the wait associated with ordering one but you've really got me thinking

    Did you consider a traditional humbucker in the bridge???
