Tom Anderson Atom Electric Guitar, Honey Burst (Pre-Owned)
A brand new body shape accompanies mahogany-based construction and a shorter 24 3/4-inch scale-length. Legendarily effortless Anderson neck playability is at hand with a new and extremely comfortable tilt-back neck geometry supporting the incorporation of a light-weight Tune-o-matic type, top-mounted bridge. Booming and focused musical tonality is the result of this well-balanced instrument. Where the bite of the Anderson Cobra leaves off, Atom explodes with formidable power.

Only two bolts to hold an Anderson neck, what the heck?:
Not a 2-bolt neck but an A-Wedgie!
Anderson Guitars have always been known for attention to every aspect of guitar building—including an extremely precise and tight-fitting traditional 4-bolt neck joint—featuring our own contoured-heel design for increased upper-register playability and comfort.
But now appearing on all our guitars, with the exception of the Crowdster, is an Anderson addition to guitar tradition with the introduction of a new neck joint that seems to be held together by only two bolts. But things are not as they first appear. Known as the A-Wedgie, this neck joint is a dynamic leap forward in how a body and neck come together to form the whole.
The force that binds the neck to its body is an all-new neck-to-body union known as the A-Wedgie neck joint. This exclusive Anderson-designed, A-shaped architecture is completely revolutionary to the electric guitar industry. A fully-enclosed neck joint (not open on any side but completely surrounded on all sides by body wood) is, technically speaking, a 3-dimensional trapezoidal wedge . It is this 3-dimensional trapezoidal wedge (the A-Wedgie) structure itself that completely locks the body to the neck. Traditional neck-bolts are no longer needed to keep the neck from shifting laterally (sideways).
What this means to the guitar player is a neck that can never move out of perfect alignment, while still maintaining a constant-pressure-union for the ultimate in sonic transfer between body and neck. And, with a larger contact surface than previous neck joints, more sound is undoubtedly invited to travel throughout the length of the instrument.
Since the entire responsibility for immovably unifying this type of neck joint falls squarely onto the shoulders of the advanced structure of the joint itself, two machine screws, located at the sveltely sculpted neck-heel, are way more than overkill for keeping it all together.
