Reverend Roundhouse Italian Purple SN: 45669
Weight: 7 lbs 8 oz
We love Reverend Guitars here at Guitar Riot. 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!
The Roundhouse wallops! The new Roundhouse is the classic single cutaway reimagined for today’s player. This carved top set neck – a first for Reverend Guitars -- has a massive tone but is lightweight and balanced. Every Roundhouse features Reverend’s HA5 humbuckers, flame maple top, a TOM stop-tail bridge, pau ferro fretboards, and no pickguards. Perfect for all your rock-and-roll dreams!CUSTOM PICKUPS
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 a graphite impregnated nut on all Reverend instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability.
