Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to be an official Tom Anderson Guitarworks dealer. These pretty much take the cake as some of 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.

Offset guitars are as popular these days as they've ever been, it seems. And we've got the one to rule them all. It is truly no exaggeration to say that every Anderson guitar that has come through our shop has been jaw-droppingly beautiful and amazing to play. They've quickly grown to become a shop favorite and we're pretty much all of the belief that "Tom Anderson can do no wrong." This Raven Superbird only solidifies this unyielding faith and confidence in Tom Anderson. The guitar is made for the workhorse musician that needs something masterfully crafted, extremely versatile, and yet simple to use.

The hum-cancelling PH pickups basically sound like some nice fat P90's but without any of the extra noise. At the heart of them is still a vintage-inspired sound while being punchy and cutting with some nice fullness and body to them. You'll be making best friends with your studio or front of house engineers by sending them only the musical sounds you want and none of the noise you don't through your signal chain. If you need to thin your sound out a little bit so it slices through the mix with a bit more of a single-coil characteristic to it, there are 2 mini-toggles that will cut the output of the pickups.

The Happy Medium neck shape feels absolutely wonderful. It's not shredder-thin but also far from having that baseball bat feeling that some guitars of yesteryear are known for. I suppose that it's with good reason that this neck shape is called what it is. It is the Goldilocks of neck shapes and likely to feel comfortable for the majority of players.

This is a true player's instrument. Ready for the studio or the stage, this could very well be your new Excalibur and be the only guitar you need to unsheath to slay your next gig or session.

Manufacturer's Description

The Guitar:
Your most profound offset style guitar dreams have become a reality. Now you can step on stage with the avant-garde look of an offset and have the Anderson assurance that you are strapped into a unique instrument that will perform peerlessly in your hands.

  • Balanced, lightweight and stable, a joy to strap on and play all night long.
  • Not over-sized or undersized but a body of just right proportions. it immediately feels like your old, best friend, that is full of brand new excitement and experiences.
  • A solid foundation supports unparalleled tone and resonance, where every sonic nuance rings out with alacrity.

As usual, our reliable intonation and tuning stability makes Raven a joy to play with any and every style of music.  No worries, just plug and play with wild abandon.

This one is a new and oh so cool Raven, but built in a very particular way and on a very particular platform, to maximize and project midrange performance. With svelte and chiseled good looks, now known as Raven Superbird.

Short and to the point, Raven Superbird is a Raven with:

  • Scale Length: 24 3/4-inch
  • Body Wood: Mahogany
  • Neck Wood: Mahogany with Rosewood Fingerboard
  • Pickups: All Anderson Pickup options available
  • Switching: Anderson All-Access 3-Way Switching

Power your way through everything with alternative style and musical grace. Thanks to its Anderson musical heritage, this bird can sing, as well as crush.

The Pickups:
The tone of a traditional Soapbar-style pickup made to fit humbucker guitars. And quiet too: no 60-cycle hum (when you are touching the strings, of course).

What do Soapbar-style pickups sound like? The longstanding benefit of a Soapbar-style pickup is that they produce a sound that lives between the weaker F-type, single coil and the fat focus of a humbucker, giving you a sound nothing else can quite achieve. So, think of the wide bandwidth that a single coil pickup delivers—low, lows and stringy, musical highs. Now tame those highs ever so slightly so there is no “shattering glass” timbre, just clear string clarity. Add big, booming lows and give it enough midrange girth to not be wimpy in any situation—but not so much that it is mid-only like a traditional humbucker. Not weak but not overly hot—big enough to be dirty when pushed through your favorite amp and pristine when backed off—without 60-cycle hum! How cool is that? You have the much-loved Soapbar tone at your fingertips.

What’s the big deal? This coveted iconic musical “P” tone has not ever been achievable in a hum-canceling version—UNTIL NOW! Thanks to the Anderson PQ R&D department—real players jamming away until all hours of the night to bring P-performance under your control.

Technically Speaking? How about precision polepiece alignment—means string and polepiece engage in maximum communication.

PH 1: Vintage level for neck application, wonderful, rich and full, but not too bloated—and with no hum.
PH 3: With tradition still intact, the PH3 gives more oomph per pick attack, for an elevated level of performance. It’s rippin’ made easy— and quiet.
