Reverend Guitars are solid, well made, reasonably priced and come in a variety of styles to suit any player. The Charger 290 is fat, raw and bluesy but with just the right amount of bite to cut through. An amazing guitar for both clean and distorted tones with enough twang for country, but thick enough for rock.
Reverend design thier own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with these instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching
CP90 BRIDGE: Slightly hotter than a vintage P90. Raw, classic tone with slightly less hum than most other P90’s. 42 gauge wire, ceramic magnets, 8K ohms.
CP90 MIDDLE/NECK: Slightly cleaner than a vintage P90. Clear, open tone with slightly less hum than most other P90’s. Middle pickup is RWRP for hum-cancelling when used with bridge or neck pickups. 42 gauge wire, ceramic magnets, 6.5K ohms.
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 these 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. Also, the posts are custom height, eliminating the need for a second string tree.
DUAL-ACTION TRUSS ROD
These 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.
There's a graphite impregnated nut on all Reverend instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability.
