Hollow Drop T
Maple Top on Basswood
Translucent Yellow with Binding
Can I please see, by a show of hands, how many people now know that the Hollow T is the most versatile guitar on the planet. Okay, most of you but not all. Well, for those of you that didn't raise your hand, it is time that you experience this guitar. It will not only get almost every sound and work well with almost all styles but it will do it with great tone and effortless playability.
Okay, now I sound like I'm bragging and I don't really mean to but I'm just so thrilled with this guitar. I mean it! You should play one. You won't believe it. Now, don't just take my word for it. This guitar, like so many Hollow Ts, is going to be with Keith and Erik at Gelb Music in Redwood City California. If you cannot stop by and play this one why not give them a call and they can allow you to vicariously experience it over the telephone. I've been told they are good at this. Hey, they have a whole store full of the best gear in the world. When I'm not listening they'll tell you frankly what's up with this guitar. It could be interesting.
This beautiful guitar is Transparent Yellow with a natural maple binding. The body is a hollow chambered, basswood backed body with a quilted maple top. The neck is eastern hardrock maple with a wonderful Madagascar rosewood fingerboard. The neck backshape is a T/A standard +.030. This simply means that it has a Tom Anderson standard neck backshape that has been increased by 30 thousands of an inch, for just a bit more to grab while still feeling sleek. I love the feel of this neck. As you can see, it is equipped with a hum-single-hum pickup configuration. The pickups are H1- for the neck SA1 for the middle and an H2+ for the bridge. These pickups, in conjunction with our switcheroo switching system, will enable you to access all possible pickup combinations.
We hope you love this on as much as we do.
