Hey everyone, sooo excited to share this with you all I have just today received my new Tom Anderson Angel (24 fret) model and it is THE best guitar I've ever played.
Tom has had requests to do 24 fret guitars for a looong time but always done 22 as not to change the sound of the neck humbucker. But this NAMM 2014 tom will be launching the new Angel series, 24 frets I visited the shop back in late September, and spec'd mine out and placed my order. Here are the specs:
One piece Koa Top on Basswood (Honey Shaded Edge finish)
Chocolate Maple Neck - Even Taper profile, 1 11/16 Nut w/ 24 Jumbo Stainless Steel frets.
Buzz Feiten Tuning System
Gold Vintage Tremolo
Gold Locking Tuners
Pickups: Tom Anderson HF1 SC2 and HF2
Strung with 10-46 gauge strings in E standard
Serial is: 06-30-13S (6/30 is my birthday, S for my name hehe)
1 - Bridge Humbucker
2 - Bridge + middle (split)
3 - Bridge + neck (split)
4 - Neck + Middle (Split)
5 - Neck Humbucker
Push-pull on the tone for master split on 1/5
and before you ask, the two strap buttons are so you can balance it against a wall, and also so a player can choose how it balances on them.
Here's the 'A Wedgie' two bolt TA neck joint
