Drop T
Maple Top on Alder
Deep Bora Bora Blue with Binding

Now don’t say we didn’t warn you about Tim. In fact an official Anderson alert was issued at the end of the June 23rd 2002 Guitar of the Week in which we stated the importance of keeping your eyes on Tim from Atlanta Music Brokers.

First, it was a Transparent Black Cobra, made distinctively unique by his request that it be adorned with a black satin painted neck back. Then he stepped out again by demonstrating the coolest way to do a fancy/traditional theme on a “T-style” instrument. He nixed the look of a pickguard in favor of a Drop Top T with a dazzling maple top and the addition of a middle single coil pickup. But apparently that still was not enough for him.

He has been nicely insistent that we create a new color or rather a variation on an old favorite. Enter Deep Bora Bora Blue. What Deep Bora does is guarantee a bolder 20ft-of-water look instead of original Bora Bora Blue’s 6 to 10 ft appearance. Tim knew what was good and this latest finish has met with great acceptance. Now Bora lovers of the world have a choice.

But it doesn’t even stop there. Tim selected an all maple neck and an alder backed body to define the personality of this Drop Top T. But the real surprise comes from the blending of our Soapbar-style P1 and P3 pickups with Drop Top’s 25 ½-inch scale length. Not normally seen, the longer scale length breathes lush musical complexity into this style of pickup and makes you wonder if you could rule the earth with such an instrument.

Perhaps—the musical world!
