Designed in collaboration with Grammy nominated rock and blues artist Rick Vito. This Art Deco masterpiece is a visual and sonic treat, with unique features including: ebony fretboard, stairstep tuner buttons, pickup pan knob, and included two-tone tapered case. But the big news is the Dual-Pro bridge pickup, based on a mid 1960′s Supro pickup. It’s a hot single coil with a second blade polepiece in addition to the standard screw polepieces. Imagine P90 meets Tele with humbucker output… fat, raw and clear! And we fit it all into a standard size humbucker cover, a first in the industry.
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.
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.
