Drop T
Maple Top on Basswood
Desert Sunset with Binding

Descending the long flight of stairs, we came upon what appeared to be a secret room. The archeologist that accompanied our party proclaimed it to be a primordial sound chamber. We slowly slid the large stone away from the opening. Illuminated only by flashlight, we shone its beam around the room until it fell on what looked to be some sort of coffer. Brushing the wood dust away, the lid opened with an eerie creak. To our astonishment, there in the dim light was evidence of an Anderson past—beautiful visual records and ancient text.

It read: An instrument created for the Norse God of Song, Jon, and brought forth through Jack at Magdon Music, this is something so gorgeous that the world must view it with an understanding of the true majesty that proclaims itself from the highest mountain top, “Desert Sunset, Drop Top T—of the left-handed persuasion.” (Paul McCartney call us, guitar bliss awaits you.) Many have struggled to view the true hues of the Desert Sun, for it was the Dreaded Keeper of the Stone from Anderson who proclaimed it such. As he sat atop a desert plateau, the sun descended beyond the earth and the image was born and so it was written. The spell of Medusa has no allure in comparison to the attraction and celestial tonal properties easily pronounced by all who choose to wield the might of the Anderson Axe.

We should probably go now!
