Tom Anderson
Founded in the mid-1980s as a California garage brand, Anderson Guitar Works, Tom's guitars have often been described as "the best guitars on the planet. Only the finest and most beautiful woods are selected from the lumber mills. The process integrates traditional handcrafting with the latest technology by skilled craftsmen to create bodies and necks that are especially precise and comfortable. The company is also renowned for offering a wide range of pickups designed to deliver optimum tone, and for pioneering the use of ultraviolet paint curing to dramatically improve the sound potential of its instruments. The company's philosophy of "all the right parts, assembled just right" was truly reflected in the playability and sound of its instruments. Tom Anderson guitars have been used by many famous musicians, including Richie Sambora, John Sykes, and Vivica Campbell, Vivian Campbell, and others...some of the biggest hard rock guitarists have used Tom Anderson guitars. Also, Kirk Hammett of Metallica has a model with a unique design. In Japan, DAITA is famous for using this model. There are many others. This brand is also famous for the very small number of pieces produced each year. The spirit of the company, which insists on handmade products and does not break the system to assemble and ship one by one with certain accuracy, is still alive and well. It is said that only about 600 pieces are produced per year, and only about 100 of them enter Japan. Considering this, the fact that so many big-name musicians own these instruments in spite of the very small number produced means that a very high percentage of them are in the hands of professionals, and once again, the greatness of this brand can be understood.

Body, neck, and fingerboard
Alder body with quilted maple top, maple neck, and rosewood fingerboard. Only the neck is satin-finished to ensure playability.
The standard Even-Taper neck shape, 1 11/16" nut width, and jumbo frets are used.

Equipped with the well-known "Buzz Fayton tuning system" for outstanding tuning accuracy and sound isolation.

The unique "A Wedgie" two-point neck joint system provides a wide contact surface between the body and the neck, resulting in excellent response and sustain.

The SC1 SC1 HF2 pickups are equipped.

The SC1 pickups have hum canceling construction, so they do not suffer from noise and have a richer tone than real vintage pickups.

The HF2 pickup is based on the vintage sound with a modern flavor and features a brighter tone with higher energy in the middle range.

In addition to simple controls of 1Vol, 1Tone, and 5-way selector, a 3-way mini switch can be used as center/normal, front side/splitter, and opposite side/VA Booster (+4dB, passive). In addition, an add-bridge design allows an additional rear P.U. to be mixed by turning up the tone knob when a single P.U. is used. It looks simple, but it allows for a wide variety of sound making.

VA Booster is a switch that is mainly installed in combination with a 5-point selector switch, which adds 4 decibels to the pickup's output. This may seem strange since it does not require batteries, but it is a mechanism that allows a pickup with strong power to be installed in advance and the output is reduced (i.e., VA Booster is deactivated) to the same level as that of a normal guitar.

There are some rice-sized dents on the top of the body and scratches on the back of the body, but the guitar is in relatively clean condition with little signs of use!

The neck condition is almost as straight as possible, as if to say, "Tom Anderson! The neck condition is almost straight and the strings are almost parallel to the fingerboard from the nut side to the bridge side.

2016年製、Tom Andersonの定番モデル「Drop Top Classic」が中古で入荷!

Tom Anderson
1980年代中頃にカリフォルニアのガレージブランドとして創業したAnderson Guitar Works、トムの製作するギターは、しばしば「地球上で最良のギター」だと評されてきました。きわめて上質で美しいウッドマテリアルのみを製材所から選定。とりわけ精密で快適なボディとネックを作り上げるために、熟達した職人による伝統的な手作業、最新テクノロジーを統合したプロセスが実践されております。また、最適なトーンを出力するようデザインされた数多くのピックアップを提供していること、鳴りのポテンシャルを飛躍的に向上させるため、紫外線による塗装の硬化を採用したパイオニアであることも有名でしょう。同社の「全ての正確なパーツを適切に組み上げる」哲学は、楽器のプレイアビリティとサウンドに如実に反映されました。つまり、トム・アンダーソンを手にすれば、ばらつきのないクオリティ、いずれのモデルを選んでも同様に卓越した性能を享受できるということを意味するのです。Tom Andersonのギターは有名ミュージシャンも多数使用しており、リッチーサンボラ、ジョンサイクス、ヴィヴィアン・キャンベル等‥ハードロック系の大物ギタリストが使用している事で有名ですが、意外な人物としてローリング・ストーンズのキースリチャーズとミックジャガーが使用していた事もありました。また、メタリカのカークハメットも独特なデザインのモデルを所持してますね。日本ではDAITAさんの使用が有名です。他にも多数いらっしゃいます。年間の生産本数が非常に少ない事でも有名なこのブランド。あくまでハンドメイドに拘り、1本1本確実な精度で組み込み出荷する体制を一切崩さない企業精神は今もなお健在です。年間で600本前後しか生産せず、日本に入ってくるのはそのうち100本程度と言われております。そう考えると非常に少ない生産本数に対してこれだけ多くの大物ミュージシャンが所有しているとなると、非常に高い確率でプロの手に渡っている事になり、あらためてこのブランドの凄さが身に染みて分かります。

定番のEven-Taperネックシェイプ、1 11/16インチのナット幅にジャンボフレットが採用されております。


独自の2点止めネックジョイントシステム”A Wedgie”を採用し、ボディとネックの接地面が広く取られたことにより、優れたレスポンスとサスティーンを実現。

ピックアップは「SC1 SC1 HF2」が搭載されております。



1Vol、1Tone、5Wayセレクターのシンプルなコントロールに加え、3-Wayミニスイッチはセンター/ノーマル、手前側/スプリッター、反対側/VA Booster(+4dB、パッシブ)として使用できます。さらに、シングルP.U.使用時にトーンノブをアップでリアP.U.を追加ミックスできるアド・ブリッジ仕様。シンプルに見えますがかなり多彩なサウンド・メイキングが可能です。

VA Boosterとは主に5点セレクタスイッチとの組み合わせで設置されるスイッチで、ピックアップの出力を4デシベル追加します。これは電池を必要としないので不思議に思われますが、あらかじめパワーの強いピックアップを設置、出力を抑えている状態(=VAブースト解除)で通常のギターと同じ程度の出力にしている仕組みとなっております。
