November - Cobra Guitars
"Cobra Guitarsяlaunched in early 2010 by Jimmy ""Cobra"" Carbonetti and Eli Apolloяspecializes in relicуd, worn-and-torn guitars. Thus far, Cobra has tackled four of his favorite рold-timeyс models. рI had experience building and relicуing Strats and Teles,с he says, рso building our own versions was a natural starting point for Cobra guitars.с In addition, theyуve introduced a model reminiscent of a Les Paul Junior and another guitar inspired by the relatively obscure Fender Starcaster.
