At first glance, the Drop Top's allure is undeniable, thanks to its signature "dropped" exotic wood top. Crafted with precision, this bent contour not only enhances aesthetics but also ensures a comfortable playing experience with swooping body lines and a forearm contour that feels like an extension of your picking arm.

The Shorty part of the name refers to its scale length, measuring at a 24 3/4 inches. This slightly shorter scale length offers frets that are closer together resulting in a bigger reach and less tension for players who need or prefer such characteristics.  

The body construction of the Drop Top Shorty Hollow is a harmonious blend of materials, featuring a flame maple top paired with basswood. This combination yields a rich, full-bodied sound with a balanced tonal spectrum. The addition of sealed chambers further enhances the guitar's resonance, providing a gentle attack and an airy quality to the tone - not to mention a further weight reduction to an already light guitar.

Finished in a striking Bora Bora Blue with binding and a black back, the Drop Top Shorty Hollow exudes elegance from every angle. The high-gloss finish adds a touch of sophistication, complementing the guitar's aesthetic appeal.

The neck of the Drop Top Shorty Hollow is crafted from maple, with a blackheart fingerboard that adds a slick, dark appearance. The Even-Taper neck profile ensures a smooth playing experience, allowing for effortless transitions up and down the fretboard.

One of the most notable features of the Drop Top Shorty Hollow is its fretwork. Equipped with heavy stainless steel frets, this guitar offers unparalleled playability and responsiveness. The stainless steel frets provide a silky smooth feel, allowing for effortless string bends and fluid vibrato.

In terms of electronics, the Drop Top Shorty Hollow is equipped with HC1 and HC2+ pickups. The HC1 neck humbucker delivers a succulent and clear tone, while the HC2+ bridge pickup offers a balanced tonal spectrum with added oomph. With a 3-way switching system and two mini toggle Cut Switches (reducing the power of each pickup down to an S level), players have access to a wide range of versatile tones, making this guitar suitable for any musical style.

Completing the package are .010-.046 Elixir strings, which offer exceptional tone and extended lifespan. Additionally, all Anderson guitars come equipped with the Buzz Feiten Tuning System, ensuring precise intonation and accurate tuning across the fretboard.
