This article is not spam. It is a bona fide entry which I am in the process of building with more references and citations.

Some information you may wish to include. The first 2 Tom Anderson guitars brought to Australia were a Pro Am and a Grand Am (by Nunzio Gambale, Pro Audio in Canberra). I bought the Pro Am (made in 1987). The earlier Anderson's did not use the Buzz Feiten tuning system. Also both of these guitars had Ultrasonic (Reference Series) pickups (made in the Bosch factory in Germany I believe, unfortunately no longer available). I changed the original Ultrasonics to a slightly updated version. The original peg head design was changed (most likely due to copy write hassles with Fender). Mine is the original design (kind of half way between a Telecaster and L series Strat). The original design is much more elegant than the current version (which resembles the Ibanez peg heads).-- (talk) 06:01, 2 August 2008 (UTC)

Article needs references[edit]

I added the {{refimprove}} template because the article needs sources. There's no reference for the claims made in the introduction, the history section could both be expanded and referenced properly, and the list of notable users should have a reference to make it clear that they're actually using Tom Anderson guitars (see Suhr Guitars#Artists who use Suhr guitars for an example).

I've added this article to my watchlist and will see if I can dig up some better references when I have time available. Nettrom (talk) 19:44, 9 August 2010 (UTC)

I've been looking for more references myself, and added a few. I agree that this article needs expansion. CEOMao (talk) 12:41, 10 August 2010 (UTC)

Good work on finding references! I'm somewhat concerned that others might not find all of them noteworthy, particularly two of the references to the Anderson site itself (not the one about how the Crowdster got named), and linking to blogs. The ones that refer to Vintage Guitar Magazine and Premier Guitar are what I'd expect is deemed to be good references though. I'll try to see if I can find some time to go through them and see if we can link to them as a magazine article and not just a web site, that would add some credibility, and also see if there's other magazine articles available.

Want to add another "GOOD JOB" to the people working on this. I know I have a classic issue of Guitar Player around (circa 1992) where they did Telecaster-style guitar shoot outs and Anderson won the overall prize. It had some notable players praising their guitars. As far as notability is concerned, I would suggest if you don't know about Anderson guitars you might not want to be editing Electric Guitar pages on Wiki - they're pretty much one of the most known boutiques (that remain small sized, remember PRS was boutique!).

I have been looking for a reference to the Guitar Player "Tele Shootout" for some time. Most of the links I have found have been dead. Still looking for more information though. --CEOMao (talk) 21:40, 18 March 2011 (UTC)
