Who's that with the well-appointed Candy Apple Red Raven? None other than Tim Pierce, the legendary session guitarist with way more credits than we could list. He's also an incredible teacher, and here he takes us through his part from Michael Jackson's "Black or White", and talks about the backstory of the song's development.
Need something heavy for your Halloween playlist? Well, here's Anderson Artist Jason Frankhouser with some screaming lead riffage and downright crushing rhythm tones. Courtesy of his Anderson Guitarworks Seven, and a Fortin Evil Pumpkin amplifier. Scary good!
Time for a throwback of excellence: Dawayne Bailey of Bob Seger and Chicago fame, live at the Budokan Arena in 1993. Playing an early Classic model, he brings his own interpretation of the guitar solo to the famed Budokan in this uniquely stunning performance. A real musician and all-around virtuoso, we're honored to call Dawayne an Anderson Artist, and a friend. See the Dawayne Bailey Fan Page for more.
In the previous episode of Anderson TV, the amazing Joan Armatrading showed us that her Crowdster was capable of quite a bit more than just lush acoustic-electric goodness - with a soulful, scorching slide guitar performance.
And here's even more evidence, from our friend S-Rock (vocalist/guitarist of White Ribbon Band). He turns up the gain and gets some great heavy tones, courtesy of Crowdster's mahogany construction and LR Baggs/Anderson-EQed piezo system.
Our friend Chris Johnson made this great unboxing video of his new Guardian Angel Player. Now you can enjoy the virtual experience of receiving an Anderson guitar! If you want to skip to a certain section:

Time for a throwback: Kirk Hammett, Metallica and Anderson Guitarworks - back in the day.
Here we find Kirk unleashing nearly 7 minutes of unrestrained fun with his bowling-ball finish Pro Am, during the legendary Seattle '89 show. Also known as: pretty much the best real-world stress testing a guitar maker can ask for!
In this installment of Anderson TV we find the man, the myth: Mr. Keith Richards, and a little band called The Rolling Stones. Here he is playing his Cobra T, one of our original models, in Transparent Black with a Natural Mahogany back. Keep always having fun Keith!
