Hog - what ya think?

Recommended Posts

Specs are flexible.

I'd have:

Alder body

Maple neck

Rosewood board (probably indian rosewood)

Jumbo fretwire

Flamed Maple top with Trans Teal finish (as the picture shows)

Undecided which model pickups YET - Have a couple in mind though (not EMG!)

Floyd Rose trem

It's a Tom Anderson.

Richt bonny - but is it what you really want?

It looks like it would be more comfortable in the hands of a prog-rock widdler with an Italian surname, than an "Angel of Death"

It ain't exactly death-thrash-speed metal looking is it?

Ps - I'd have it though :up:

I have been playing lotsa guitars lately to decide exactly what I want - alder body, maple neck, jumbo fretwire, 2 humbuckers, floyd rose, 25.5" scale.

As long as it has that - I'm set.

I've been playing some higher quality guitars with bolt-on necks and I have to say: a good bolt-on is as good as any to be honest!

I could make do with 22 frets I think, I'll just pull up on the Floyd from 22 if I want the pitch of the 24th!

That's the deceiving bit though ya see - the picture displays a strat style trem and 3 pickups - Anderson specs are flexible so I'd get rid of the middle pickup, put surrounds on the other 2 and have a floyd trem instead!

Also, yeah it doesn't look as 'metal' I guess but I'm all for tone at the end of the day. When we record stuff, you don't see what I use, it matters only what I'm using I suppose!

Nevermind the fact that I have definitely fallen in love with that finish - just look at the bookmatching of the top! Also that teal stain looks beautiful!

Hog - I'm looking into what are the highest output stock pickups Tom Anderson makes. Failing that there's Bare Knuckle (which sound nothing short of brutal!) and also Seymour Duncan (Dimebucker anyone?!).

Sounds like you've got it sorted and I totally agree with you regarding tone :up:

I also agree with the comment that it's much better looking than the Hanneman :up:

Good luck & happy hunting.

Not yet I didn't :(

I need to shift that and the frankenstrat and maybe also my Line 6 before I go for the TA.

I think that if I get the TA with custom specs though that it's gonna be VERY costly...
