Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to be an official Tom Anderson Guitarworks dealer. These pretty much take the cake as the nicest bolt-on guitars to roll through our shop!

With a veritable who's who of guitar players on their roster it's easy to see why Anderson Guitars have become so highly sought after for pros and hobbyists alike. A brief glance of Anderson's endorsees includes names like Bob Seger, David Crosby, Dierks Bentley, Kirk Hammett, Keith Richards, Richie Sambora, Neal Schon, Vernon Reid, Tim Pierce, and the list goes on and on and on. Simply put, Tom Anderson and his crew are cranking out some of the most amazing guitars on the planet right now.

Sure, this guitar is amazing to look at. The flame maple top is killer and the unique black surf finish complements the dark chocolate maple neck and rosewood fretboard beautifully. The uncovered pickups also really give this an edgy and badass look.

The playability is out of this world! This is one of the nicest feeling necks ever made. It's thin, but doesn't feel like a toothpick in your hands and the carve on it is just divine with that magical heel joint that is nothing short of perfection.

Electronically, this guitar is decked out with tons of usable options while also not being overly complicated. At its simplest, it's an HSH style guitar, and it doesn't necessarily have to get any more complicated than that, if you don't want it to. The HC1 and HC3 pickups make for the perfect humbucker pairing. They have plenty of output to retain definition when saturated and overdriven, but they're still smooth and can achieve convincing vintage tones. They sound great when played clean! Think of them as hot humbuckers with vintage characteristics still intact. The SF2 in the middle is hum-free and a bit on the hotter side, to compliment the HC humbuckers.

Along with a standard 5-way blade pickup selector, you can pull on the tone knob to add the bridge into any pickup configuration you're using. The 3-position mini-toggle can be flipped up to split the humbucker and/or bridge pickups or flipped all the way down to bypass everything and send the bridge humbucker straight to the output jack for a bright and powerful in-your-face sound (in the middle position, the mini-toggle switch does nothing). These options are there to help you unlock more out of the guitar. They won't ever get in your way, though. Every option on the guitar serves a musical purpose and sounds good.

This is another prime example of the meticulous attention to detail that goes into the building of each and every guitar that Mr. Tom Anderson puts his name on!

Manufacturer's Description

Anderson magnificence in a 24 fret format of pure playing performance. The Angel is crowned and enlivened by its gorgeous maple top.

The Anderson Angel is:

  • Gorgeous exotic wood-topped body.
  • Unique Angel body silhouette for easy access to the upper-most frets and beautifully balanced playability.
  • Comfortably sculpted front and back contours.
For those of you who know Anderson Guitarworks, think of Angel as a Drop Top with a full two-octave range.  But that is just the beginning.  Completely designed and aligned from the ground up to be a 24 fret "angel" of a guitar with unparalleled abilities.  We gorgeously reshaped and balanced the body to allow extended access to the upper frets, via the deeper cut-aways and longer horns. As with all Anderson Guitars, Angel is endowed with the best playing guitar necks—Anderson’s legendary, super-fast and ultra-easy playability in a medley of back shapes.  Easy to fly.

The absence of pickup rings contributes to Angel's more modern, clean lines but (as with most everything here at Anderson) also serves a higher purpose of elevated performance.  No pickup ring styling enables the neck pickup to nestle nearer the 24th harmonic for the richest “24” neck tone obtainable.  Lush.

All Anderson pickups and pickup layouts are available for Angel so you can outfit as you prefer and access all your favorite electric guitar tones—and much more—via our familiar and intuitive, multi-dimensional, 5-Way switching setup, which easily brings all sounds you could ever imagine under your command. 

Switching Options:
Position 1: Neck Pickup (series or split with toggle selection)

Position 1 alt: (with push/pull in up position) Neck + Bridge Pickups (series or split with toggle selection)
Position 2: Neck + Middle Pickups (series or split with toggle selection)
Position 2 alt: (with push/pull switch in up position) Neck + Middle + Bridge Pickups (series or split with toggle selection)
Position 3: Middle Pickup (series or split with toggle selection)
Position 4: Middle + Bridge Pickups (series or split with toggle selection)
Position 5: Bridge Pickup (series always)

Blower Switch: The blower switch flipped to the off position, allows the pickup switches to function as normal. Flipped down to the on position, the three pickup switches are bypassed and the bridge pickup is turned on full power (series) as if it were wired straight to the output jack.
Example: For a great rhythm sound you decide to have the neck and middle pickups on split. When it's time for a powerful sounding solo, you simply hit the blower switch and play the solo with the bridge humbucker full power (series). When the solo is over, merely flip the blower switch off and you return to your multi-pickup rhythm sound.
