It has been said that there is a very fine line between genius and madness. Which is which, or could they be one in the same? Perhaps to push the envelope beyond its limit requires attributes of both elements concurrently. We will leave that for you to decide.

Brian and Les of Elite Music Sales in Montgomery, Alabama, have been genius as Harold.

Wait!...What?…I think I said that wrong…let’s try that again:

Brian and Les have been heralded as genius.

After all, it was Brian who envisioned and ordered the first Bulldog in Arctic Blue Burst. This amazing guitar sold even before it arrived to their store, appeared in Guitar of the Week and remained as such for several weeks. In fact, this beautiful Bulldog even went so far as to coerce a very famous, high profile artist (more on this later) to order a Bulldog for himself—to instantly solve all of his twin-humbucker guitar issues in one fell swoop.

Yes, and it was Brian who fired up our entire NAMM booth this year with the inclusion of The Classic finished in a “show stopping” Sparkle Orange. This guitar sent out shock waves we are still feeling.

Here’s Brian and The Classic in Sparkle Orange, having fun with us at NAMM.

And once again it was Brian who insisted we make a Drop Top painted Natural Blue (formerly known as Nearly Natural Arctic Blue) with a satin clearcoat. The guitar sold in minutes of its arrival to Elite Music Sales and made someone very happy.

Oh yes, Brian certainly does push the envelope. Brian knows what’s cool. But Brian also consults his partner Les on every move he makes.

This spectacular and totally unique Pro Am is their latest creation. They are on it again!

A Pro Am adorned with a first-of-its-kind Sparkle Silver finish bursting to Starry Night (Sparkle) Black at the outside edge—known as Sparkle Silver Burst. If that wasn’t enough to make this Guitar of the Week worthy, Brian chose black covered HC-series pickups and insisted we laser etch them with the Anderson “A” logo for an additional touch of class.
