Here’s what Reverend say about the Gil Parris signature:
NYC guitar virtuoso, Gil Parris, blends jazz, blues, and rock into his own, eclectic sound. So, he needs a guitar that can go through the whole range. Our hum-single-hum combinations are unique because all three coils are on in positions 2 and 4, giving it a unique quack and girth.
The hardtail bridge and string-thru body add more sustain to the overall tone. Reverend’s own Bass Contour Control adds another dimension to the sound, giving you even more to work with. If you never know which direction your gigs will go, this is the one for you.
We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.
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 has a beautiful caramel color. The result is an exceptional maple neck that will require less seasonal adjustment, and boasts a rich vintage look!
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!
