Born out of Tom’s garage in mid 1980’s Southern California, Anderson Guitarworks has since been producing what some have called, “The best guitars on the planet.” From humble beginnings to our current state of the art facility, we stay dedicated to the tradition and progress of electric guitar design.

The process begins with the creation of the most precise and comfortable bodies and necks possible. We accomplish this by choosing only the finest and most beautiful woods from select lumber mills. Our design and manufacturing process utilizes the best of both old and new world craftsmanship. Ground breaking CAD technology is used to achieve the most exacting tolerances found in the guitar industry, while the fine detail woodwork and beautiful finish sanding are done by the hands of a master.

To best compliment and allow you to further fine tune the sound of your guitar, we offer many models of pickups. They are all designed and wound in our own pickup shop for optimum tone. And you could also call the excellence of our internal wiring a work of art. Our gorgeous paint jobs are done using a revolutionary new ultra violet light curing process that was pioneered here.

It allows the instruments full tonal potential to be uninhibited while setting a new level of beauty for our guitars.

The final process is the coming together of all these precision parts in just the right way to enable each and every guitar to achieve its maximum playability and sound. What does this all mean? It means a guitar of unparalleled quality, and no matter which model of you choose, you are getting that same level of excellence. Our models vary only in their look, wood choice and sonic character. We offer this variety so you can choose an instrument that will bring out your personal best!

We have been hand-selecting, photographing, setting up and selling high end guitars for over 30 years. In this time we have always understood just how important it is to get the setup right. The best guitar in the world can feel very average if it's not setup properly. We have always made this a priority on every single guitar that leaves World Guitars.

The guitar arrived today WOW!! It's fantastic and has exceeded my expectations in all respects. The build quality and finish are outstanding as is the feel and the sound. I only had an hour to play with it but I can't wait to get it plugged in again. Please pass on my thanks to Patrick Eggle who I hope to see at the London Acoustic guitar show again this year when I can thank him in person. Thanks also to you and the team at World Guitars, you really showed a personal interest in my order from start to finish including the delivery which went totally to plan. I would certainly recommend you to my friends. A cut above other major guitar stores I have visited and used.
