We teamed up with Stuart Daniel Baker, the man behind Unknown Hinson’s character, to bring you this alter-ego signature guitar. We started with our Club King body, slimmed it down to 1-1/2″ thick, reduced the body shape about 10 percent, added a full length center block, and 24-3/4″ scale neck. The result is a thicker and more aggressive tone with increased clarity, for a versatile semi-hollow that can cover everything from authentic Country twang to Classic Rock. If you like the Unknown Hinson model, but prefer something a bit less ghoulish, this unmasked axe 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.
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.
