The Raven Classic
The offset styled guitar that was designed from the outset to play, exquisitely well.
Your most profound offset style guitar dreams have become a reality. Now you can step on stage with the avant garde look of an offset and have the Anderson assurance that you are strapped into a unique instrument that will perform peerlessly in your hands.
Balanced, lightweight and stable, a joy to strap on and play all night long.
Not over-sized or undersized but a body of just right proportions. it immediately feels like your old, best friend, that is full of brand new excitement and experiences.
A solid foundation supports unparalleled tone and resonance, where every sonic nuance rings out with alacrity.
As usual, our reliable intonation and tuning stability makes Raven a joy to play with any and every style of music. No worries, just plug and play with wild abandon.
HC1: More neck humbucker saturation, output, and smoothness than HC1- while still retaining equilibrium for the neck position perfection. The quintessential mate for the medium-hot HC2 in the bridge position.
SC1: Slightly more than vintage level, single-coil sound, hum-canceling (great for neck and middle application).
HC3: The HC Series solution to hot output, with vintage character still nicely intact. Just pushes the front of the amp a touch more or when a bit more musical muscle is needed.
VA Booster is a no-battery powered color change for the pickups to which it is applied, approx. 4db on single coil-style pickups and split humbuckers. The boost's effect is less apparent on full-power humbucker pickups but lends a nice saturation and smoothness.
It is as if, with the flick of an unobtrusive mini-toggle switch (see photo), we rewind your pickups for a little more saturation and oomph while still retaining the same overall character, very nice.
Clicking the booster transitions the pickups to the next level, as though we put the “next hotter” set of pickups into your guitar
(Editor's note: VA Boost is subtle sweetness and saturation. It is not like a foot pedal embedded in your guitar. We find foot pedal level boost better applied and adjusted on the floor in front of your amp. The combination of VA Boost and your favorite pedal can be a magic one.)
