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.
- Flamed maple top

- Locking machine heads

MINI TRI-SONIC® PICKUP
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!
