As the house lights go down, the crowd surges with anticipation. Hoots and howls sporadically erupt. They have been patient for quite sometime. Through the darkness the red glow of the amplifier pilot lights are all that illuminate the stage. Only silhouettes can be seen as they enter stage left. The place explodes with applause.

You walk onto the stage gripping the neck of your Anderson, Hollow T Classic. The feel of its refined and swift 62 Roundback neck profile instills confidence and reassures that its flowingly smooth playability insures a superior performance. It is gong to be a good night.

With a sweep of your right hand the venue is filled with a gargantuan guitar chord resounding in perfect harmony as the stage lights simultaneously come up to full luminosity. You pause to let the intensity build. An audible gasp can be heard as the audience realizes that you are holding…a Pink Guitar!

Undaunted, you have nothing but the utmost confidence for you are brandishing an Anderson. Being an experienced performer, you know how to interpret gasps when you hear them. This is a gasp of appreciation, for this year’s new fall fashion states that, “Pink is the new black!” They are impressed. You have seen the pink T-shirts with the slogan, “Real Men Wear Pink.” Perhaps after this gig those shirts will read, “Real Musicians Play Pink Andersons.” And not just any shade of pink mind you but the legendary shade of Shell Pink. Now a literal electric guitar icon, Shell Pink made its debut in this arena around 1960. Shell Pink is very well established. Forty five years is a long time—and still going strong.

Another crushing blow delivers the next chord with unchallenged supremacy. Never before have you experienced single coil tones like these. M-Series pickups are the way to dominate in large or open areas that can, for many players, pull the middle muscle right out from under traditional single coils. If you have ever had this experience, Ms are the pickups for you. Substantial single coil tone becomes but mere child’s play in all situations when Ms are on board—M1 in the neck position and the angled TM2 at the bridge for this particular Hollow T Classic.

And for those of you worried about hum—don’t! Ms are actually small-sized humbuckers with a wide and musical bandwidth that capture bountiful single sound.

All quite perfect for projecting the Power of Pink to the masses!
