The Twelfth Fret ~ Since 1977 ~

❌SOLD❌ Anderson Drop Top T Fire with Binding, 2007


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

The Anderson Drop Top T is based on the classic ‘T’ style design that’s been in use since the dawn of the 1950’s. Building on this, it adds a well-figured Maple cap on an Alder body, a ‘vintage-style’ trem bridge system, and in this case, a pair of humbuckers with a single coil in the center position.

Here we’re looking at an Anderson Drop Top T, with a faux-bound figured Maple top; instead of the binding being separate pieces, the finish is scraped back for a visual simulation. The finish is called ‘Fire’, a combination of yellow and red stains and tints that bring out the varying grain directions in the figure, suggesting the colour tones of a fire.

This example dates to June 19 2007, based on the serial number, and was built at Newbury Park, California. It is in overall good shape, with a few small dings and finish chips expected after 16 years of use; fret wear is very light. This guitar is also pre-configured for the patented Buzz Feiten tuning system, so it’s ready for a tuner with the correct offsets. It plays well, and the larger frets really provide a lot of positive grip.

Here’s the builder on the Anderson Drop Top T:

“Before we answer we must acknowledge that the prevailing thought is: there is not one guitar that can do it all. And if you are trying to specifically specialize in different sounds, that may be true. But, for all around everything, for an instrument that can cop all styles and not force you to change guitars all night long, the most versatile guitar on Earth might be the Top T.”
