"I've just bought the king cobra (greenburst) - fell in love with the look from the late sixties. I've had custom shop Stratocasters, but to be honest I find the king cobra so nice to play and the sound is so good. I was always a Fender fan but Burns is now my favourite guitar. Thank u for producing a great guitar with a price tag that puts other manufacturers to shame.
Many thanks,

The Burns King Cobra guitar is based on the '90s Drifter Custom and the double-cut body shape has a full and rounded form reminiscent of the '70s. The neck's gloss polyurethane finish is wider and flatter than the Fender equivalent of that era and the medium-gauge fretting is excellent and the white edge binding adds a finishing touch.

While many contemporary Burns fingerboards are buffed to a shine, this one exhibits the even dryness you would expect from quality Indian rosewood. One of the uniquely features of the King Cobra is the trio of Mini Tri-Sonic pickups that are designed to emulate the classic, larger-format vintage pickup's sound but in a smaller footprint.

Features include:

  • Flamed maple top
  • Bolt-on neck
  • Three-piece alder body
  • Knife-edge vibrato
  • Locking machine heads
  • Three mini Tri-Sonic pickups
  • Master volume and independent tone controls (with push/pull action for two extra pickup settings)
  • Five-way selector switch
  • Block neck inlays
  • Neck binding

Available in the following colours:

  • Honeyburst
  • Greenburst

P.O A. (Price On Application).


For many years Guitar players have expressed the need to obtain the Classic Tri-Sonic sound from their traditional style double-cut guitars, without the necessity of having to carve larger cavities in the instrument bodies or alter the pick guards/scratch plates to accommodate the larger original units. By carefully engineering and condensing the original internals and easing them inside a narrower Tri-sonic casing, guitarists can now enjoy the thick, ringing mids and smooth sustain of the classic 60s Tri-sonic, whilst still having access to traditional single coil sounds and warm humbucking tones - all in one instrument!
