Reverend Guitars are solid, well made, reasnobly priced and come in a variety of styles to suit any player. The Buckshot has a smooth, single cutaway style and a great combination of pickups. The bridge pickup delivers classic upper-mid honk and bite while the neck Revtron (carefully repositioned slightly further from the neck to better match the bridge pickup’s tone and output) puts out a full, warm tone, but leaner than a full-size humbucker. Perfect for the player who wants the T-style tone, but thicker and more versatile.
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
The Revtron: Slightly hotter than a vintage F-tron for extra punch and sustain the originals lacked. 42 gauge wire, alnico 5 magnets, 7.5K ohms.
Greasy T: Slightly hotter and warmer sounding than a traditional T pickup. Fat tone but still has bite and a percussive attack. 42 gauge wire, ceramic magnet, 7K 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.
