Tom Anderson Raven Superbird - Transparent Red with Hard Shell Case

Tom Anderson Raven Superbird: Aggressive Tone and Precision Engineering

The Tom Anderson Raven Superbird is a specialized version of the Raven, designed for guitarists seeking an aggressive, muscular tone. With a short scale length, mahogany neck, and advanced A-Wedgie neck joint, the Superbird offers exceptional playability and a focused midrange. This guitar is perfect for those who want vintage tone with modern enhancements.

Aggressive Midrange with Unique Construction

The Raven Superbird features a 24 3/4-inch short scale length from nut to bridge, making it easier to reach frets and emphasizing mid frequencies. The mahogany neck adds focus and aggression to the midrange by smoothing outer frequencies. This guitar is available with three body variants that all accentuate the midrange in slightly different ways, ensuring you get the perfect tone for your style.

Comfortable and Secure Neck Design

The Happy Medium neck shape provides a balanced feel, not too big or small, with a comfortable taper. The revolutionary A-Wedgie neck joint locks the body and neck together with a fully enclosed trapezoidal wedge, eliminating the need for traditional neck bolts and ensuring stability.

Versatile Pickups for Rich, Dynamic Sound

Equipped with PQ 1 and PQ 1-R pickups at the neck and middle, and a PQ 3 at the bridge, the Superbird offers vintage-level soapbar tones that are rich and full without hum. These pickups deliver a wide bandwidth sound, blending the characteristics of single-coils and humbuckers for a unique, dynamic tone that can be both dirty and pristine.
