Hey guys. It's been a while since I've started a thread here. I've gotten a few new guitars and though I'd share.

Alright so I've been interested in getting a 7 string for a while. A while back I put in an order for one through my favorite guitar company. 5 months later it was done. It came in this box.



Inside the box was this really sweet guitar.



Huzzah. It's an Anderson Drop Top 7. One of only 23 made. Pretty isn't it.
1 Piece Alder back capped with a fireburst quilt maple cap. Maple neck with a rosewood fingerboad. The smallest frets I could get. All black hardware. Matching headstock and back.




The top looks like it's on fire. I still need some time with this guitar. Tonally, it sounds like the other Andersons I have. I'm not too jazzed about his pickups but these are slightly hotter then the ones people usually get in their Andersons. The pups measure 20k each each. Which isn't too bad. Not as hot as I would like though. The finish is of course perfect. None of the minor imperfections you get on most Gibsons. As soon as I learn how to play this thing I'll try to make some djent clips. The trem is a hipshot 7 tremolo. It works pretty great.

Alright next up. I've had my eye on one of these guitars for a while. I love hollow and semi hollow guitars. I love them hard. I've been trying to pick up another one but the prices for the one I wanted stayed pretty high even used. That is, until I found this one. I saw the price and immediately put it on layaway. The other day I drove to pick it up.

It came in this box.






Beautiful isn't it? It's a Gibson Custom Shop CS 336. I picked it up for a song. Under 1500. It's got a few scratches and dents. I've gotten in trouble for this before but I have to say it again...no way I could ever justify paying full price for this guitar. It's beautifully, but it's got issues in the binding and paint. My hb spruce puts it to shame cosmetically. For the price I paid though, I'll love this guitar forever.

A wanted a 335 style/shape guitar forever but I just couldn't get over paying so much for laminate not to mention the memphis mumbo jumbo. The 336 is made in nashville. 1 piece back and sides, 2 piece front. Love at first sight. Loved it more after I took out the wimpy pickups. 8k bridge/neck. come on.

Review summary - it's awesome. I love it.

oh yah mah clips

Wow, that box looks very much like the guitar that was in it. I've got to say, that takes some serious skill.

And i love that 336. I've wanted a guitar like it for so long... Yet as a college student I lack the resources to buy anything above an Epiphone

On a related note, AM, I'm quite jealous. What's the neck joint like on the 7? Are the two bolts really enough to transfer enough energy and is it that stable? Or am I just stupid and missing something?

Of course not, just an original combination. Well from the clips it does sound good though!

All the Anderson necks are like that now. The neck isn't flat at the end like a fender neck. The groove and the neck are cut

so that the neck touches the body in 5 places.

I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

WTF do you need a 7 string for? You can't even play a 6 string

Why don't you just get a Squire?
