Reverend Guitars - 2 New Signature Models Released at NAMM 2010

Reverend Guitar released details on their two new signature models. Wicked as hell looking axes.


Reverend has cooked up a new signature guitar with Unknown Hinson, the self-proclaimed King of Country Western Troubadours, Billy Bob Thornton sideman, and underground guitar legend. This vampire-meets-hillbilly tone machine is a lightweight, versatile semi-hollow guitar that can cover everything from authentic Country twang to Classic Rock hippy mess.

The King wanted a stealthier version of our Club King model, so we slimmed the body thickness down to 1-1/2" and reduced the body shape about 10 percent. We then added a full length center block and 24-3/4" scale neck... the result is a thicker tone and more aggressive attack with increased clarity in overdrive mode. The two Reverend P-90 pickups in combination with the Bass Contour control deliver a wide pallete of tone options. The black color scheme, bat inlays, and Coffin Case complete the vibe.


Reverend has teamed up with David Bowie/Tin Machine/solo guitar legend Reeves Gabrels for a new signature guitar. The guitar covers Reeve's requirements for a versatile solidbody that can cover everything from high-gain shred to avant garde rock to heavy blues.

Clarity with Power! That's what Reeves wanted and that's what he got. We yanked the cover off the Reverend bridge humbucker for increased output and treble response. Then we dropped a Dimarzio Fast Track 1 pickup in the neck position, which offers single-coil like definition but with more mids and no hum. And the tone control is a push-pull phase switch for really pushing the tonal boundries.

The solid korina body and trans finished flame maple top deliver resonance and style. The pickup selector is actually a toggle-style switch that can be rotated at an angle to suit the player. A traditional-meets-modern masterpiece for players who want the best of both worlds.
