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!
Our take on what a classic double-cutaway should be. Full thickness body, and the correct amount of wood where the neck meets the body. The bridge pickup is slightly hotter than a vintage soapbar, and the neck pickup slightly cleaner.
All the rawness, midrange presence, and upper-fret access you'd expect, but more versatility, a stable neck joint and better balance!
The solidbody construction uses resonant korina for an instrument that is lively, clear and rich in harmonics.
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.
This passive bass roll-off is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. It can make a humbucker sound like a single-coil, or give a P-90 that classic twang. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!
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.
DUAL-ACTION TRUSS ROD
Our dual action rod adjusts in both directions, allowing back bow or forward bow. This assures correct adjustment range is possible regardless of string tension, extreme climate conditions, or the effects of long term aging. It’s also located at the headstock for easy access.
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.
