FS: Tom Anderson Guardian Angel Player

For sale is my Anderson Angel. $2750 shipped CONUS
I just bought a relic Classic from Tom and can’t afford to keep both, unfortunately. This one has been my main guitar for 2 1/2 years, and I’m sad to see it go. But there’s a season for everything.
Note that the guitar is unique in that it’s a custom color I chose, and then had Tom finish it in a matte finish. The forearm contour has started to buff a little, so that has a little shine to it, but the guitar is still clearly a satin-finished instrument. Note also that the neck is unfinished and that the logo is laser engraved into the headstock. I’ve owned more than a dozen Andersons over the years and I’ve never seen another one like it before or since. I’m sure they’re out there; I’ve just never seen one. The unfinished neck aged quickly, so the guitar looks and feels broken in and established.
There are a handful of places where the guitar shows stage-wear. The lower edge has some cracks where I dropped my gigbag out of the car when I was loading in. There are a couple of finish cracks at the front of the neck joint, and there are two little dents in the other side, but those two don’t appear to break the finish. I tried to get photos as clearly as possible so that you see what you’re buying.
No trade interest. Also, the Angel will get shipped out from Tom in a brand new hard shell case from his shop. Once you purchase it and pay for the guitar, I’ll run it over to him so that he can set it up to your liking. It’ll add a couple of days to the process, but you’ll get it straight from his hands. That doesn’t imply a warranty of any kind; I just think it’s right to have him give it a once-over before you get it.
Lastly, I had him add a middle pup so I could get the 2 & 4 sounds from a 5-way switch. The guitar rings like a bell and is a true joy to play.
