Tom Anderson is one of the world’s most respected luthiers, and for good reason he makes absolutely stunning instruments and has kept his business small enough to be able to be fully involved while using some of the most advanced building techniques in the business. If you haven’t seen it already you should check out Music Pro Media’s documentary on Tom Anderson which is an in-depth look into Tom Anderson’s workshop including some trade secrets!
Anyway I digress as usual, Tom’s latest offering is The Raven pictured above which is an offset style guitar with choice of either a 25 1/2 (traditional) or 24 3/4-inch (short) scale length with the full array of Anderson Pickups available – including the new PH-series pickups.
A svelte, cut, lean and nimble instrument that hangs balanced and light. Makes you want to play Raven all night long. Not oversized at all, it’s periphery feels much like that of our familiar S or T models.
