Reverend Pete Anderson Eastsider S Black

Serial Number: 40217
Weight: 7 lbs 12 oz

We here at Guitar Riot love Reverend Guitars. They have a modern yet classic look and an easy playability across the whole line up. Every Reverend that comes through the door is consistently great! They all feature Korina bodies which make for a very resonant instrument. The Bass Contour is another feature unique to Reverend Guitars. The Bass Contour is passive and allows you to roll off the bass frequencies to optimize pickup voicing on the fly. Great for going from chunky rhythms to cutting leads with ease. Locking tuners and graphite nuts are also common features in the Reverend Guitars lineup. Bottom line is Reverend Guitars are a great balance of quality, price, and features that make for a stage ready instrument!

This plank may look standard at first glance, but it’s factory hot-rodded and stage ready right out of the box. Country/roots-rock guitar legend and Grammy winning artist/producer Pete Anderson is well known for his vintage T guitar. We worked together to modernize it while keeping faithful to the original character. Modifications include: chambered body, stainless steel saddles, compound radius fretboard (10″ to 14″), push-pull phase switch (in the tone control), and “R” embossed knobs. If you want a classic look and sound, but you're sick of fighting with your guitar every night, this guitar is for you.

We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.

Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.

The Eastsider has three strategically placed chambers underneath the pickguard for all the increase in resonance and warmth that you'd expect. The placement of the cavities also reduces neck-diving balance issues found in most chambered guitars.

A thumbwheel under the tuner pushes a steel pin up through the post, locking the string in place for exceptional tuning stability and super-fast string changes. Also, the posts are custom height, eliminating the need for a second string tree.

Features include saddles that lock to the baseplate, adjustable arm swing tension, and a push-in/no freeplay arm. Combined with our graphite nut and pin-lock tuners, it stays in tune even under aggressive whammy action.

We use "Boneite," a synthetic bone nut, that is more consistent than natural bone, on all Reverend instruments. It reduces friction, allowing the strings to slide through the nut slots smoothly, improving tuning stability.
