Tom Anderson worked for Dave Schecter helping establish the Schecter guitar brand from 1977 until Schecter was sold in 1984 at which time Tom started Tom Anderson Guitarworks to make guitar pickups and guitar necks. Soon after he was contacted to produce pickups for the new owners of Schecter because they were not getting the sound they were looking for in their Japanese produced pickups. This standing order, coupled with their growing reputation for making replacement necks and bodies helped forge the brand and allow Tom Anderson Guitarworks to focus production solely on their own line of guitars by 1990.
