The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Anderson Classic with Power Bridge 3 Colour Burst, 2001


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

The Anderson Classic is one of the best versions of the S-Style guitar, built to very high standards with top quality parts. This 3- colour sunburst example dates to 2001, sports an Anderson / Fishman Vintage Tremolo Power Bridge and comes with a (now discontinued) Fishman PowerBlend pedal piezo preamp.  The tuners are short-post models with top-mount locks; the locks can be operated with a tool like a dime or quarter.   This guitar was factory set up with the Buzz Feiten system.

This Anderson Classic is in overall good condition with light wear to the finish. It’s been well taken care of and maintained but it has been played over the years and has had a fret dress in our shop. The light-mint pickguard has been slightly altered to improve access to the truss rod adjuster.

The original Anderson hard shell case is included.

Here’s the builder on the Anderson Classic model:

“Is the Anderson Classic the most profound, best playing and best sounding vintage double cut-away electric guitar on Earth?

Clearly undisputed, “Yes!” is the answer.

The whole story: When something remains as an unrealized dream for long enough it becomes a fantasy. A fantasy is the belief that there is no such thing in the real world. This is a mindset that surrounds the legend of the “vintage guitar.” That it is unobtainable. That you cannot have a vintage instrument that will play like lightning, sing like angels and be reasonably priced.

But when we look deeply, we see that this is a mistaken perception and once perception is corrected, bliss returns. Bliss is restored to the musical world in the form of: The Classic. The Classic is the vintage guitar of your wildest dreams, and beyond, the one you always knew should exist but you were unable to touch in physical form, until now. For a pure vintage vibe, an Alder or Swamp Ash body is hand-selected and kiln dried to perfection. Alder: Is the first and most popular choice among players, as an alder body bestows it gifts of full and boosted low-mid frequencies accompanied by predominate upper mid prominence.

It is these qualities that bring big single coil tones effortlessly forward in the mix, when paired with the right amp for you. Humbuckers enjoy a lower end bump and slightly less all-middle-only tone. Swamp Ash: The open and ethereal, delicate, airy and complex “S” tone. Soft, soothing open middle lays the groundwork to showcase rich low, lows; highlighted with sparkling and softly sweet, musical highs. Basswood: Soft and bountiful midrange makes itself abundant as this is the wood (when done just right, and of course that’s how we do it) that defined the core humbucker sound of the 80s in a 25 1/2-inch scale length guitar.”
