In the near-ish future, we'll be doing a feature on the storied guitar shops of New York City -- the sort of places that should always figure highly on every visiting guitarist's Big Apple must-see list. In the meantime, however, here's a quick look at the guitars made by Cobra Guitars in NYC.
The Epiphone Riviera Custom P-93 is a fine guitar. It is beautifully conceived and crafted in that stunning see-thru wine red finish, laminated maple top and body with mahogany neck. I also dig (cosmetically and functionally) having the three black plastic dog-eared P90 pickups.
The Music Man Albert Lee HH is a great alternative for players who love the look of the previous Albert Lee models but prefer a deeper, warmer tone than the bright and brilliant sounds of its predecessors.
