Tom Anderson Drop Top - NAMM 1993 Show Guitar & Signed by Tom Anderson & Kahler Steeler FL tremolo - Extremely Rare!


I am the first and only owner of this superb guitar. I got it from Tom anderson himself during my visit at NAMM 1993 show. It was made at the 4th of January 1993.

This guitar apart from being a NAMM 1993 SHOW guitar ( stamped on the body under the bridge pickup ), it is also signed by Tom Anderson to my name at the back of the headstock.

A Mega Rare Find for a Tom Anderson guitar!!!


Please see the pictures!

Tom Anderson never or very rarely signs a guitar. He really dislikes it. Hence, this is a very rare case.Also consider that  for Tom Anderson was his third NAMM SHOW and at that time he only had a small stand with no more than 15 guitars to show. Also his production was very small compared to nowadays. I remember he made under 400 guitars per year.Then only the very best, which were made by himself, were shown at NAMM.

The guitar is in Mint Condition and it has only been played for a few hours only in my studio for a few recordings. Looks like it has been kept in a time capsule for 31 years.

There is a kind of very little descoloration in a few of the pickup poles as well as in one of the fine tuners of the kahler bridge. However, after almost 31 years these negligible issues are expected.

Please see the pictures!

It is a superb example of a collector's guitar!!!

Also the guitar is loaded with the very high quality Kahler Steeler tremolo, which is supposed to be the best Floyd Rose licensed tremolo ( made by solid steel ) and the only one made in the USA.Tom Anderson used them only for a couple of years for his top models due to their high cost and availability.

Today they cost around 500 US$ secondhand.

The guitar is very light and very resonant. It sounds amazingly well with a superb low action. It plays like butter!

Everything on the guitar is original and the original hardshell case is included!
