Heavy Duty Tuners
These open-back tunersfeature a large gear and a 1/2″ diameter post for smooth tuning andincreased durability. The 1/2″ diameter post also has another advantage:smaller posts cause flatwound strings to break when you wind them… noproblem with our tuners.

Lock Down Bridge
Ourbridge features allen bolts that lock each saddle down to the massivebase plate. This locks the bridge into one solid unit which enhancesclarity and attack, and produces bell-like sustain. This versatilebridge can also be strung string-thru-body or top-load.
Korina(aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight wood, highly prized forconsistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintageinstruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonantwood, Korina is a key factor to producing our lively, responsiveinstruments that are rich in harmonics.
