Here's What Reverend Say About the Reeves Gabrels Signature RG-SUS
Reeves Gabrels isn’t known for toeing the line of the mainstream. The new RG-SUS reaffirms that. It’s just like his original signature model, but it’s loaded with a Sustainiac system for authentic and controllable feedback. Create massive sustain without signal loss, and harness feedback for another dimension in playing. It's the best usable feedback generator on the planet! This versatile solidbody that can cover everything from high-gain shred to avant-garde rock to heavy blues, also has a Railhammer Reeves Gabrels Signature pickup in the bridge position. It's the next level for the Reeves Gabrels Signature traditional-meets-modern powerhouse!
Create controllable, endless feedback and sustain at any volume with the Sustainiac System. When off, the Sustainiac operates as a typical humbucker. When on, the system produces a magnetic pulse that drives the strings into sustain. A toggle switch offers three modes: Fundamental Mode allows a note or a chord to go on seemingly forever, Harmonic Mode dramatically morphs the sustaining note into a higher harmonic, and Mix Mode is an exhilarating combination between the two.
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!
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.
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.
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.
