Eddie is a miniature man only a micron tall at best. He is a highly skilled musician who also micro-manages a mini music store in a very small town. However miniscule his stature, the guitar he is playing fits him absolutely perfectly, while filling his tiny little room with huge tone as he easily navigates its all-Rosewood neck with grace and effortless fluidity…for it is an Atom—the smallest guitar on earth. In fact, high-powered microscopic-magnifying cameras were required in order to bring you this magnificent picture of pure playing rapture.

...Or…

Eddie is a masterful musician of normal size who is the vital soul of Indoor Storm in Raleigh, North Carolina. He possesses vast amounts of experience. You only need to hear him play a few notes to know you are in the presence of musical greatness, and you only need to hear him speak a few words to know he is one genuine and sincerely nice human being.

And no, contrary to what you may have heard, Atom is also normal sized—an utterly amazing guitar of monumental proportions. Huge in tone? Unquestionably, yes! Not heavy to hold and effortlessly easy to negotiate. Everything you ask of it flows freely, lifting your abilities to their ultimate. Think we’re exaggerating a bit? Strap one on and play for a moment. Now, try putting it down. Taking it off is the only hard part. If we have learned anything from nuclear physics over the years it is that splitting from an Atom is a difficult task. And why not, artistically and scientifically speaking they flat-out play great!

Eddie could also be considered a visionary in his field of expertise as it was his choice to order a Jack’s Pacific Blue, Hollow Atom—the very first one to ever grace this earth. If that were not enough to stop you dead in your tracks (it sure did me), he also opted to outfit with an optional all-Rosewood neck for its beautiful, deeply-rich chocolate hues and added low-mid growl.

Beside himself, Eddie dashed off a quick note after putting Pacific Blue, through its paces:

“Hi Everyone at Anderson Guitars,

After being knocked over by the beauty of this Jack's Blue, Hollow Atom, I was overwhelmed by her tones—real warmth and roundness without any trace of mud...And I found every setting to be musical—Great Guitar !!!

Thanks very much,
Eddie”

It should now be abundantly clear that Eddie and this Hollow Atom are anything but microscopic.
