Player's Perspective

Music Store Live is proud to be an official Tom Anderson Guitarworks dealer. These pretty much take the cake as the nicest bolt-on guitars to roll through our shop!

With a veritable who's who of guitar players on their roster, it's easy to see why Anderson Guitars have become so highly sought after for pros and hobbyists alike. A brief glance of Anderson's endorsees includes names like Bob Seger, David Crosby, Dierks Bentley, Kirk Hammett, Keith Richards, Richie Sambora, Neal Schon, Vernon Reid, Tim Pierce, and the list goes on and on and on. Simply put, Tom Anderson and his crew are cranking out some of the most amazing guitars on the planet right now.

This Cobra is a sophisticated and classy instrument that can appeal to old-school players, modern-day shredders, and just about anyone in between that likes double-cutaway guitars. The pickups have a solid amount of output and they pack some nice oomph to them. They are very full and harmonically rich. They sound great and very smooth when played clean and they can handle some distortion really nicely too. They're definitely modern sounding humbuckers with a foot in the door of that vintage sound. The 5-way pickup selector, push/pull coil splitter on the tone knob, and the VA booster (which gives the Cobra the venomous sound it's named after) provide a wealth of musical tones that could easily make this your go-to guitar for virtually any style of music.

Once again the crew over at Tom Anderson Guitarworks have absolutely hit it out of the park. The neck is simply divine and the playability of this guitar is immaculate. It's got a slightly more vintage feel to it and will be perfect for anyone that doesn't like paper-thin necks but also doesn't want to feel like they're playing a baseball bat. The shorter scale length is really fun and gives the strings a wonderfully slinky feel (without being floppy) that is great under your fingers and also helps bring out some more midrange in the instrument. This guitar is as fun to play as it is to look at!

Manufacturer's Description

Cobra with double cut-away is Cobra S.  Again enlivened by a gorgeous exotic wood top.  For those who love the way an "S" hangs, feels and looks as you step on stage or stand in front of the bathroom mirror—both are valid...

Cobra and Coba S have been an Anderson favorite for a long time now.  In 1996, Cobra S took its rightful place alongside the renown Cobra, to add the same Cobra crush to the "S" body style. Taking over the (musical) world with an "S" just got a lot easier.

Cobra S is:
- Short Scale - 24 3/4-inch strings length. Focused mids, easier reaching and bending.
- Mahogany Construction: a powerful mahogany foundation of body and neck backs up all Cobra S has to say with midrange muscle.
- Sleek and svelte, no pickguard "S" delineation.
- Twin humbuckers - other Anderson pickup options available as well.
- Simple and versatile switching to access all viable sounds available.
- Bridge - fully functional vintage-type tremolo with string-through-the-body design for increased saddle tension, offering low-end vibrancy and a bit of a bite, tonally speaking
 
VA Booster:
VA Booster is a no-battery powered color change for the pickups to which it is applied, approx. 4db on single coil-style pickups and split humbuckers. The boost's effect is less apparent on full-power humbucker pickups but lends a nice saturation and smoothness. It is as if, with the flick of an unobtrusive mini-toggle switch (see photo), we rewind your pickups for a little more saturation and oomph while still retaining the same overall character, very nice.
Clicking the booster transitions the pickups to the next level, as though we put the “next hotter” set of pickups into your guitar. VA Boost is subtle sweetness and saturation.  It is not like a foot pedal embedded in your guitar. We find foot pedal level boost better applied and adjusted on the floor in front of your amp. The combination of VA Boost and your favorite pedal can be a magic one.

 
The H Series Pickups are:
- H 1: Full, throaty neck humbucker tones that are never bloated. Open, clear, and rich, this pickup splits very well. A little more output and fullness for additional oomph.
- H 2+: Perhaps our most popular bridge humbucker. Not too hot, not too cold but just right with a big low end. Full mids without giving up all the highs and lows.
