Here's what Reverend say about the Kingbolt:
A sleek new body design, a simple yet effective control layout, and a Wilkinson tremolo system that stays in tune without the hassle of a locking nut! The revolutionary Railhammer Hyper Vintage bridge and Hyper Vintage neck pickups take it to another level, for the ultimate bolt-on rock guitar.
Rails under the wound strings for tight lows. Poles under the plain strings for fat highs. This revolutionary design from Reverend founder Joe Naylor delivers exceptional clarity and punch, that will get you heard loud and clear!
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.
DARK ROASTED MAPLE NECK
Roasted Maple is heat treated at over 300° F to remove sugars, moisture, and impurities. This maple is lighter, more stable, and requires less seasonal adjustment. For the Kingbolt RA, we roasted the neck longer for a "deep roast" color that is rich, exotic and truly worthy of this fine instrument!
WILKINSON WVS50 IIK TREMOLO
Features include saddles that lock to the baseplate, adjustable arm swing tension, and a push-in/no freeplay arm. Combined with our boneite nut and pin-lock tuners, it stays in tune even under aggressive whammy action.
We use "Boneite," a synthetic bone nut, that is more consistent than natural bone, on all Reverend instruments. It reduces friction, allowing the strings to slide through the nut slots smoothly, improving tuning stability.
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!
