Did you mean offer?
I ordered my Raven with a RW neck.
I think since the early 2000’s it’s been an orderable option. My Atlantic Storm HDT also has an IRW neck.
I changed my Classic from white plastics to black - huge improvement in tone and sustain! (Kidding...)
I also bought an SSS pickguard from Tom at the same time and wired this up. I'll try it at some point, maybe next string change, but can't imagine straying away from the two HF's.
Set of Novak foils in an old Cobra Special...
My Classic with the single coil pickguard on...
He has offered RW necks for a long time
Here's my Rosewood neck. A Hollow Cobra S. I believe it was the 2nd TA produced with a Rosewood neck.
Have had this guitar well past the honeymoon. This Top T is just what Tom describes - "for all around everything, for an instrument that can cop all styles and not force you to change guitars all night long, the most versatile guitar on Earth might be the Top T." I've had many vintage and other boutique guitars, and I just don't recall a guitar that can call forth so many classic and different tones, and do so in each case without compromise. I know Tom hasn't been a fan of ebony, but I'm glad he made this one. Miles above anything else I've had. Superb fit and finish. 7 lbs. Well done
Several features I must call out as mind-blowing -
Stainless steel frets - the best guitar with Stainless frets I've had, so smooth, won't wear, no ping or high end artifact
Sustain - no dead spots, incredible sustain all over the fingerboard, on and on and on
Treble bleed - the TAG-tuned treble bleed - I've never had such a bleed implemented so well - the ability to turn down volume without losing or changing tone at all, just cleaning it up, all the way down - this makes the 5 way switching with splitter phenomenally effective, adds greatly to the versatility, and sounds so vintage in every position
Mesa Boogie Mark Series - I had been told for years that nothing is a better match with a Mesa Boogie Mark than a TAG, and I should have listened long ago - the versatility of the Mark plus the versatility of the TAG is truly mind-blowing

Very nice T! Cool to see one with an ebony board as well, not too many of those around. If you're after versatility I don't know what beats an HSH Anderson. I have a '99 HSH Drop Top (that I custom ordered) that's been great ever since.
And a timely thread bump, as I just placed an order (with Distinctive Guitar) for a Raven Superbird a few days ago. Really looking forward to it.
Nice! If I were getting another, I'd definitely consider a Raven.
Attention, attention. This is an Appreciation Thread!!
Photobucket users are excused, but all others should be tared & feathered for removing pictures. Please erase your baby, Family, pet pictures & repost those missing TAG pics. That is all.....
What do you mean was?
You left out...
Now that is how I would want a Tele! A nice rounded edge! Gawd this look is killer!
i am a sucker for a mongrel
Hey Thanks brokenvail it's probably one of the best playing guitars I've owned over all the years.
Nut ... 1 11/16
All 3 of mine have identical neck specs , only the woods differ.
Maple / African Rosewood
Chocolate maple / Indian Rosewood
I appreciate my Anderson
I’m happy to have Anderson appreciation again! Picked this Cobra up. First pic is natural light in the back of my car, 2nd is from CME’s listing. The appearance changes based on light but I’d say it’s somewhere in between in person
I had a Raven a few years ago that I regretted selling. It played wonderfully but I couldn’t quite get the sound I wanted out of it. This thing seems like it can do everything
Loves me some Tom Anderson guitars! A friend of mine got me hooked and hooked I am. My trio:
