Let’s All Take A Moment and Kneel
No, not kneel…Neal.
Let’s all take a moment and Neal—a jam with Neal Schon:

…in his self-posted flurry of playing magnificence, Neal-style, aboard his new Anderson, Cobra T—outfitted with more and greater Cobra options than ever before.
Can you imagine sounding this good while recording video on your phone’s internal microphone as it is propped up on the arm of a chair (or however he actually recorded it)? Really astounding.
Yes, this is Neal’s new Cobra T, finished in Desert Sunset.
But…the mighty Cobra, an always-impressive Anderson mainstay, has changed. Cobra is new and vastly improved. And whether he knows it or not, Neal may be partially responsible for these performance-enhancing changes.
Yes, Cobra has changed, however, this is no reason to ring the Elapidae alarm bell for Cobra is still built upon the same profound and formidable foundation that has always underpinned its aggressive and impressive nature. But now, Cobra flourishes even further with new and better options—never before available on any Cobra—markedly expanding its depth and versatility.
More pickup options, a new aggressive tremolo bridge and additional multidimensional switching, and Cobra—with its new appointments—is now unbounded.
These are the kinds of changes that can really make a huge difference—unlocking the most musical sounds from Cobra’s already aggressive nature.
If you are new to the Anderson Cobra family of guitars, you may be asking yourself: So what is it that actually defines a Cobra as a Cobra anyway?
Very simply, Cobra T and Cobra S are Anderson’s S & T body styles defined by:
Short Scale - 24 3/4 inch scale length
All Mahogany construction - both body and neck back.
And with all Anderson attributes soundly in play, this is the most “muscular” way to build a guitar. When you raise one to playing position, you will know.
To further clarify: Cobra T and Cobra S are to the “T” and “S” families of Anderson Guitars what Superbird is to Raven (in case you are already familiar with the Raven family. And if you are not—now you are—even more Anderson fun).
So, to make the bold statement that Cobra can completely transform your “T” or “S” experience is apparently not even slightly overstating the absolute significance of the Cobra contribution.
Shall we kneel now? No wait…I mean, shall we Neal now?!
