Cobra an anachronism

Postby balston11 » Tue Jul 03, 2018 1:27 pm

As we know prior to 2010 the Cobra had 2 string trees and no truss rod cover following a brief period with one string tree the Cobra was produced with no string trees and a truss rod cover and still is. Recently I have seen a couple of brand new ones for sale with the pre 2010 headstock all white ones with perloid scratchplates.
Does anyone know anything about this?

This one is currently for sale at Hotroxuk
Interestingly on Burns own (never reliable) web site it shows some of the Cobras with the old style headstock and some with the new.

Don't know much about the new ones, all I can say is that having owned one of each I greatly preferred the old ones, i.e. before the angled-back headstock with the truss rod cover and no string trees.

That seems to be the general feeling amongst people I have spoken with.
