    Rick at GP guitars made it impossbile for this not to come home yesterday.



    The neck is the nicest one I've ever experienced 12" radius perfect c profile. Jumbo SS frets 24 3/4 scale.
    Positions 1 3 5 are pure vintage style bucker with a touch of grit nice and chunky but not all the way to les paul country.
    2 3split and 4 are Fender single coil country with a touch more punch. it's light and resonant the body countours fit me perfectly and it's very well balanced not neck or tail heavy.

    I especially love the character in the fretboard - that's truly special.

    Great Guitar! Congratulations!!
    Notice you carefully kept it on cloth instead of putting it on the ground..
    That finish will stay perfect for life with a minimum amount of care.

    It has been a while since I have seen a T style guitar that made me go damn that is nice - well this one has done it.

    It looks like a keeper.

    More importantly - How does it sounds?

    Anderson Hollow Cobra is an interesting guitar. Depending on the pickups, they can be nice and traditional, or blazing assault rifles to saw the stage in half with. My wife has one with the Anderson P-90s that is the best P-90 guitar we have every come across.

    How often does one get to say how much they love the backside of a guitar?

    That is a BEAUTIFUL guitar and that backside pic is outstanding.

    Tone report?

    Beautiful guitar!

    I'm starting to G.A.S. for a Cobra so that I have something between my Atom and my Drop Top.

    Man! I really respect Tom Anderson, but this view may just turn me into an Anderson guy! That's just about perfection in a bolt on guitar.
