Magnificence in playability is an undeniable requirement for complete guitar fulfillment—the very foundation of every Anderson guitar—unparalleled playability.
But for some players, bringing forth their vintage vision also requires iconic styling cues—most notability, the inclusion of:
Three numbered knobs, a top jack, full-sized S-body and 1 rear strap button.
In the past the dilemma has been: How can I possibly give up pristine Anderson playability, full Major 3rd bends and ridiculously rich, multidimensional chording that rings out so wonderfully in tune? Playing an Anderson Guitar is like nothing else—to be sure.
So, so good!
But…when no one is looking and I close my eyes I sometimes still see myself as a vintage rocker. Why must I give up one for the other? In this day in age of "cake and eat it too,” there must be a way.
And the answer is now: Icon Classic
