Candy Blue

“Thank you Los Angeles and Good Night!”

You lean your guitar against the amp and head backstage. Chanting begins from the darkened arena. Raven sits majestically watching over the audience, awaiting your return. They are in good “hands” (talons, perhaps) until the encore begins—huge Raven chords ringing out miraculously in tune.

This is not mere fantasy or silly hype…but a vision of possibilities. An Anderson guitar is truly capable of all this and more. Enjoy.

Raven—now showing in Candy Blue—is the awesome Offset Instrument of all time—fast and effortless to play—everything you touch flows freer and easier. Sleek, light, nimble and svelte to hold, it will become an integral part of your musical expression…and with its strikingly good looks it also becomes part of your individual musical persona.

And just wait (if you can) to dig into the PQ-series pickups atop the satin Black Pickguard. They project Raven’s intrinsically rich personality with a fat, full and yet still “chimey" character—something you normally will not find with hum-canceling pickups—unless you play an Anderson. What a sonic bonus!

Inspired by its original Raven sibling, appearing on our homepage in Metallic Purple, The Guitar Sanctuary in McKinney (near Dallas) Texas, wanted a vibrant Blue version of this Raven to carry the “torch” of total Raven-coolness.

Well done! Without a doubt, this Raven is now also on the must-have list!
