Short scale mahogany bodied T, beautifully contoured for comfort and playability
From the moment Cobra T first appeared on the scene in 1992, its popularity has been utterly overwhelming. Everyone who touches one, seems to want one, and rightly so. But why?
Cobra T is one of the only guitars on Earth (maybe the only one) that is a perfect blend between the formidable sonic muscle of a short scale guitar and the musicality of a long scale guitar. And the only way to get this wonderful blend is aboard a Cobra T (or Cobra S).
Cobra T is a short scale guitar. A shorter, 24 3/4-inch scale length means less string tension, fatter mids, and greater ease of bending and reaching.
Additionally, Cobra T derives much of its muscle and focused, aggressive midrange by virtue of a mahogany foundation. The Cobra body is attentively hand-selected, pure mahogany, crowned by an exotic wood top, usually beautiful, figured maple.
Cobra T's neck is a sleek and fast mahogany back, embraced by a premiere rosewood fingerboard.
But Cobra T has a bite that will predominate through any mix, on stage or in the studio, giving more life and dimension to every musical passage, an aspect that is usually difficult for most short-scale, mahogany guitars to achieve. Its geometry grants this gift, with its flat neck to body alignment and string through the body bridge choices, saddle tension is increased and clarity is exalted.
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!
