H.S. Anderson Mad Cat Vintage Reissue

By October 19, 20122012, New Release
H.S. Anderson Mad Cat Vintage Reissue

For the first time in over 30 years, the original Mad Cat returns. H.S. Anderson tried to stay as close as possible to the original specifications. An original ‘70s Mad Cat was used as a reference model, and after extensive testing H.S. Anderson settled on what they believe is a worthy successor, which even surpasses the original in some regards. Subtle upgrades were performed: Tuners were upgraded to Gotoh SG360 with a higher gear ratio. The original Keiyo pickups were upgraded to Bill Lawrence USA vintage. The output jack is more sturdy, so no more signal drop-outs

All other specifications are equal to the ‘70s Mad Cats, H.S. Anderson designed these guitars with the highest respect to the sound and feel of this legendary guitar. Each one is handbuilt in the original Moridaira factory by Japanese craftsmen, and comes with a certificate of authenticity.
