The Meshell Ndegeocello Fellowship bass is a collaboration between Reverend and the eclectic bassist known for her versatile chops and soulful phrasing throughout a long and wide-ranging career. Based on our Thundergun platform, this bass is both minimalist and versatile, covering everything from warm jazz, to percussive funk, to aggressive rock. Unique features include: satin finish, reverse headstock, stacked volume/tone knobs, and P-Blade pickup.
Heavy Duty Tuners
These open-back tuners feature a large gear and a 1/2″ diameter post for smooth tuning and increased durability. The 1/2″ diameter post also has another advantage: smaller posts cause flatwound strings to break when you wind them… no problem with our tuners.
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. Click here for more pickup info >>
Lock Down Bridge
Our bridge features allen bolts that lock each saddle down to the massive base plate. This locks the bridge into one solid unit which enhances clarity and attack, and produces bell-like sustain. This versatile bridge can also be strung string-thru-body or top-load.
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.
Our bass necks are constructed from five pieces of wood laminated lengthwise. This creates a stronger and more stable neck that’s less prone to warping, twisting, and humps over the life of the instrument.
Stacked Volume Control Knob
Volume knob on the bottom, with the tone knob on the top, and there’s also a center detent so you can feel where you are in the knob rotation. Simplicity at it’s finest!
