Gone In 58.3 Seconds
 
What does Brian know anyway?  Apparently...quite a lot.   Smart guy. 
Leave him alone for just a minute with our website "spec thingy" and look what he does… 
Yes, it was Brian of Brian's Guitars in Connecticut, who jumped on the Anderson website and opened up the Anderson Artist Spec Sheet, in order to make speccing a new Anderson Guitar fast, fun and informative.  
For sheer enjoyment, he selected the specs of a beautiful dream of a Top T Classic he had in mind.  Once complete, he liked the way the specs read and how the natural Swamp Ash back would complement the Key Lime Burst, Quilt Maple top.
Intuitively he knew this would be a wonderful guitar.  After all, it would be an Anderson, Top T Classic - can’t be anything other than Awesome.  (I think that is like an electric guitar law—or something.)
He called to confirm the order and we were off to create this guitar especially for Brian’s Guitars in Connecticut
Dave is pictured here working his magic in Anderson Final Assembly. Under his skilled guidance, the whole becomes far greater than the sum of its highly crafted parts.  Complete, the Top T Classic easily realizes its full magnificence.
Editor’s Note: It is rumored that Dave may dress to match each and every guitar that he assembles—really?
As Brian's envisioned Top T Classic arrived at Brian's Guitars, they unboxed it and carefully placed it...as Fred walked in their door. 
One look, one touch and one play and Fred knew...he knew that this Key Lime, "T," must happily come home with him, join his band and improve his musical experiences. After all, that is just what an Anderson Guitar is made to do.
But now, with playing transformed, a sibling is a much needed asset. So, it is Fred's turn to jump on the Anderson website and fire up the Anderson Artist Spec Sheet to create another...something Natural Purple is arising. 
Stay tuned...
