Well, this isn’t just another regular edition Guitar of the Week. We are talking about Charles—an amazingly talented guy and our brother here at Anderson Guitarworks. He is one of the esteemed few who comprise the Anderson Final Assembly Department. It is he (and a few others) who are responsible for the bringing together of gorgeous and precision components into a cohesive whole in order to create an unparalleled Anderson Guitar that you will never, ever want to put down.

An example of his work is this beautiful Tiger Eye, Atom—now headed for Italy. Its three M-Series pickup arrangement will lay waste to any other single coil guitar that comes near. Think ultra P-90-type sound without hum. If you have not yet experienced Ms in an Atom, your appointment with elevated tone is well overdue.

And if that isn’t already enough talent for one guy, you should here him test the guitars when he finishes—to make sure everything is perfect. He is one of those musicians who can play anything and everything he hears—and we’re not just talking about C, D and A chords—diminished 7 flat 5 augmented 9—no problem. He can also fabricate almost anything needed around the shop. There are pieces of Charles everywhere. Yea, he’s gifted and we are fortunate to have him here.

All right, enough of that now. There are even more important things to talk about. Ready…Charles is getting married! We are all very happy for him and celebrating. He and Sandra will tie the knot on Saturday, December 3—and of course we will all be there. I told him I thought she was a very lucky woman to be getting him, but true to form he replied, “No, I’m the lucky one, she’s great.”

Happy Life
