Reverend Guitars are solid, well made, reasonably priced and come in a variety of styles to suit any player. The Kingbolt RA FM has 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.
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
Revtron BRIDGE Slightly hotter than a vintage F-tron for extra punch and sustain the originals lacked. 42 gauge wire, alnico 5 magnets, 7.5K ohms.
Hyper Vintage Bridge - They took the vintage PAF recipe and dragged it kicking and screaming into the new millennium. Warm, open, lightly compressed, with chimey highs. Has a softer mid attack, and overall more open tone than the Chisel. Perfect for blues, classic rock, old school metal and punk, that "early EVH" sound, or for any player looking for a vintage vibe but wants the Railhammer advantage. And like all Railhammers, the extra clarity on the wound strings means they also work great with low tuned guitars.
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.
