With Powers and Abilities Far Beyond
As this time-honored, pop culture tale goes, on his home planet he was a mere mortal...a guitar player, I think. But once he came to Earth everything changed. Now under the influence of our Natural Yellow Sun, Top T Classic, he became superhuman, charged with powers and abilities far beyond those of mortal…ah, guitar players. Faster than a speeding bullet, multidimensional chords now ring out sweetly and gorgeously in tune. The bouquet of tonality; astoundingly impressive.
But with great power comes great responsibility. For Anderson, and for you, that means this and more:
  • Unparalleled playability for each and every guitar—love those Anderson necks.
  • Only the choicest of woods are selected for vibrancy, resonance, integrity and weight.
  • Hardware of superior function and tone—all components either Anderson-created, modified or selected.
  • Pickups—a huge array of different auditory offerings—all tonally balanced and created at Anderson Guitarworks for sonic euphoria.
  • Multi-faceted switching renders familiar function and instant execution while leaving no hidden tonal combination untapped.
Yes, this is a Natural Yellow Sun, Top T Classic. A relatively new and loved color—which some also claim brings extraordinary abilities.
Maybe so, we should ask John about that. He received this Top T Classic for his birthday—from his wonderful fiancé. She may have also been naturally drawn to this Natural Yellow Sun’s intrinsic power, because she could not resist surprising him with it.
Beforehand, John knew nothing about what was to come. On his birthday, she presented him with Anderson-supplied pictures of the Top T Classic and let him know that at this very moment this Natural Yellow Sun, “T,” was in route to come play with him.
Ah, the bliss of an Anderson birthday.
Happy Birthday and Happy Playing to John, his fiancé…and may all of us have Happy Anderson Birthdays in the future.
Editor’s Note: When we use the word, Natural in a color name it implies that you are seeing natural wood in concert with the specified color—so Natural Yellow would be natural wood and trans yellow together.

Guitar Tales Addendum:

For those of you under the impression that the superpowers part of this Anderson story could be a bit…far-fetched, you may need further corroboration. Well, we have that, of course.

Adrian Williams plays for the legendary band, The Temptations. He is a longtime Anderson Player and stopped by to order an Icon Classic, in Sparkle Gold, for his upcoming tour. (Can’t wait to see that one in Guitar Tales.)

If we are remembering correctly, when Adrian walked into the building he weighed about 98 lb.

Once he spied this beautiful Top T Classic finished in Natural Yellow Sun, he asked if he could play it for just a moment. As he lifted it to playing position, everything changed.

The picture you see before you is the aftereffect—happiness, good looks and muscles—all at once. And you thought we were kidding…
