You have seen a silverback gorilla. But until recently—October 17, 1902, to be exact—they were so illusive that they were thought to be mere legend—no one in the west had ever seen one. Did they actually exist at all? Many thought they did not.
Until… proof was finally brought back and shared with the world via the media of that day.
So think about this: when the original King Kong movie first came out, the existence of gorillas had only been known for 31 years.
Is it the same with the Whiteback Anderson guitar? Do they actually exist?
Thought to be mere legend, it wasn’t until Jason of Music 49 had one appear on their doorstep that proof became positive. How did this happen? How did Jason and the guys at Music 49 uncover this illusive beast? Was it while on an expedition into the deepest, darkest wilds of the music industry…or Skull Island?
Well…ah…or…he ordered it.
Many are calling him a genius and some are calling him a wild man of color and guitar fashion.
You decide, but this is an Angel, finished in Natural Purple with a White Back and White Matching Headstock.
Augments in look, tone and ridiculously awesome playability are provided complements of the Chocolate Maple Neck.
High powered, super-musical, vintage-flavored HC-series humbuckers (HC1 and HC3) bestow gorgeous (gold covered) Anderson tone—both full power and split. And the, white covered, SC1 in the middle position is the single coil pickup most selected for its stellar tone alone—and it is also hum-cancelling.
Yes, it is angelic sound all around for this Angel.
