Tom Anderson Icon In-Distress - Olympic White over Tobacco Burst
NAMM 2019 - Party at the Anderson Guitarworks Booth
Day 2: Guitar 4, “Icon Classic, Olympic White over Tobacco Burst - In-Distress Level 3 Double Decker"
An In-Distress Level 3 paint job with two layers (two colors) of paint—one underlying the other.
We take great care in making all of our In-Distress finishes—including these new Double Deckers—to capture the real essence and depth of a vintage instrument. Not to make it look like your “disturbed” uncle lit it on fire, through it down the stairs and then jumped on it with baseball cleats. That is not how a real musician treats a time-honored instrument. But instead, with our In-Distress we are capturing the look and feel of real road and playing wear—a coveted and wonderful instrument from the hands of a master that has many years of musical experience and stories to share.
Vintage VA7.2 pickups grace the neck and middle positions while an HC2 in an aged nickel cover takes up its position at the bridge.
5-Way Switching with the traditional 3 knob layout and top jack is only the beginning as Push/Push pots on both tone controls grant extra access of a neck + bridge pickup combination and splitting for the humbucker.
