John recently had the exceptional opportunity to visit the renowned Tom Anderson in California, where together they unboxed four exquisite guitars destined for Peach Guitars. Amongst these was this breathtaking Tom Anderson Drop Top Shorty Hollow, a guitar that seamlessly blends innovative design, impeccable craftsmanship, and superior playability.

Innovative Design and Superior Comfort

The Tom Anderson Drop Top Shorty Hollow stands out as a pioneering instrument in the world of "S" style guitars. Introduced in 1990, the Drop Top was the first guitar to feature a maple top "dropped" to create a comfortable forearm contour. This design innovation not only enhances the guitar's aesthetics but also enriches its sonic character. The Drop Top Shorty Hollow, with its slightly shorter 24 3/4-inch scale length, offers frets that are closer together, providing a larger reach and less tension, making it ideal for players seeking ease of playability and comfort.

Exquisite Tonewoods and Finishes

The hollow part of the name refers to the fact that the body is chambered and therefore very light with rich and plentiful overtones. This Drop Top Shorty Hollow is crafted from a flame maple top on an alder back. This combination produces a vintage tone characterised by a thicker midrange and a full, clear articulation. The maple top adds sweet, soft highs, while the alder back delivers a familiar, vintage tone. The guitar is finished in a stunning Light Tiger Eye Burst with binding and a black back, all protected by a beautiful high gloss finish.

Playability and Precision

The neck of the Drop Top Shorty Hollow is made from caramel maple with a rosewood fingerboard, featuring a 12 to 14-inch conical radius that facilitates effortless playability and smooth string bending. The Even-Taper +.030 neck profile provides a sleek, fast feel, maintaining a consistent depth from the nut to the 12th fret. The guitar is equipped with stainless steel jumbo frets, known for their silky smooth playability and durability, enhancing every aspect of the player's technique and touch.

Advanced Electronics and Hardware

The Drop Top Shorty Hollow is fitted with the SC1, SC1-, and HC3 pickups, delivering a range of tonal possibilities from vintage single-coil clarity to humbucker-driven power. The SC Series pickups are hum-cancelling and produce a rich, vintage-level single-coil sound with soft, lush highs. The HC3, part of the HC Series, offers hot output with vintage character, providing focused midrange energy and sweet, soothing highs. The 5-way switching system, combined with options for S or T/LP voices, allows for endless tonal flexibility.

Unmatched Tuning Stability

Equipped with the Buzz Feiten Tuning System, the Drop Top Shorty Hollow ensures unparalleled tuning stability and accuracy. This system enhances the overall musical experience by ensuring chords sound perfectly in tune, regardless of where they are played on the neck.
