Oh yes, this is the guitar that started it all for Tom Anderson!
Before Drop Top, the number of S-style guitars that had a maple top and were “dropped” or swooped over to create a comfortable forearm contour were exactly…
But with the introduction of the magnificent Drop Top in 1990, all that changed. The “S” instrument could now have it’s full body contours, be a thing of astounding beauty and have prodigiously rich and spectacular sound—eminating from ample amounts of tone wood backing an exotic wood top—all toghether in one instrument for the very first time.
However, there is quite a “magic formula” for getting all of this just exactly right and Anderson has it down. Results may vary outside the Anderson “universe.” Over the years, we have come to unlock even greater secrets of tone for the Drop Top and it is truly more spectacular than it has ever been. Now we offer Drop Top with 4 different choices of tone-wood back—all of which are so impressive that all of your non-Anderson playing friends will not only stare at you in constant envy but will want to play your guitar every chance they get-—which is every time you are magnanimous enough to let them.
