And after he had given up all hope, “Next in line please. Now serving Guitar of the Week number 10-01-03A.”

As we learned on Sept 28, 2003, time is not linear. It is our hope that Scott read Guitar of the Week on that illuminating day for if he did he may better understand that it could only have been a matter of time. We have waited patiently for just the right moment but there was always some other time-dependant Guitar of the Week suitor requiring our immediate attention and calling out, “Write about me.” All very necessary and important but now time, actually being more spherical than linear, has come again to reveal this “million dollar” Tortoise, Hollow Cobra S.

Scott tried to envision a color that would speak to his soul and bring to life the Hollow Cobra S of his dreams. Deeply moved by the legend of Big Foot and the “Personalized Selection” Tubular Quilted Maple featured on the Cajun Magenta Drop Top from September 15 & September 29, 2002, he thought deeply. He wanted something similar but earthy—something that would fluidly blend the beauty of an all-Rosewood neck, which he had chosen for its elegant look and added low-mid fundamental rumble, with the swooping contours of the Cobra S body shape.

It cannot be denied that Scott is a true Tortoise, Personalized Selection, Tubular Quilted Maple visionary extraordinaire. May this Hollow Cobra S, with its complexly superlative tones brought streaming forth by its time-honored H1- and H2+ Anderson humbuckers and show-stopping good looks, carve out a unique place in the sphere of time for Scott and his music.
