Vanguard 16

  • Built 2014, Serial No. 503

    The Andersen “Vanguard” designation denotes a guitar with pickup mounted in the top rather than floating above the top. There are several advantages when building the pickup and controls into the top as opposed to the floating style. There are more pickups to choose from; some players prefer the amplified tone of a mounted pickup over a floater; there is more range to the adjustments of pickup and pole piece height; controls and jack are more conveniently located.

    This is in very good condition, with a few small scratches and minor fret wear. It is offered for sale by the original owner who clearly took very good care of it.
