Lately I've been wanting to upgrade my tele to something new. I was almost set on a new PRS until I came across the Tom Anderson line of guitars. One word came to mind: perfection. The anderson guitars have their heart and soul poured into them. And it made me wonder if this is what a PRS was meant to be until the corporation took off on a larger scale.
PRS are still perfection... if you disagree you're Ed Roman or need to take a closer look. Anderson are amazing, but Tom is the only one who builds them now, so they cost a LOT. My guitar has one of the last ones built before Tom decided to just build them all himself, and it is an amazing guitar. Suhr and James Tyler build amazing Strat-style guitars too.
