Here's what Reverend says about the Billy Corgan Signature Guitar:
When you set out to do something this epic, you don’t repeat yourself. A fresh design with classic and modern elements that come together in a unique way. The raised center section with thinner wings and strategic chambers under the pickguard add resonance and reduce weight, while a string-thru body bridge provides maximum sustain and percussive attack.
Railhammer Billy Corgan Signature Pickups meld P90 snap with humbucker chunk, and no hum! And, finally, the body is topped with a segmented aluminum pickguard for a modern, yet timeless look. Let this guitar inspire you.
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!
String-Thru Body Bridge
String-thru body design and stainless steel saddles for a percussive attack that provides maximum sustain and a ringing, solid tone.
Low Profile Knobs / Bass Contour
All the controls feature the classic low profile knob shape, rendered in a chrome finish. The passive Bass Contour is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. 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.
Chambered Korina Body
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium lightweight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. It is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics. On the BC-1 there are strategic chambers under the pickguard to add even more resonance and reduce weight.
Dual-Action Truss Rod
Our 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.
Pure Tone Jack
All Reverends use an upgraded jack by Pure Tone Technologies. A standard jack has single contacts, but the Pure Tone jack has dual contacts for improved grip, audio signal and reliability. The most dependable guitar jack available.
Treble Bleed Circuit
All Reverend guitars have a treble bleed circuit, preserving the treble when you roll back the volume control. When you roll back a standard volume control, the tone loses treble and becomes dull sounding. Now you can turn down and still sound great!
