Here’s what Reverend say about the Bob Balch Signature:
Bob Balch began playing guitar for Fu Manchu, Southern California's most fuzzilicious band, in 1996. Of course, he needed a hot-rodded rock machine for the adventure.
The understated elegance of the Bob Balch Signature model is based on our acclaimed Sensei platform. Unique features include beveled body edges, glossy finish, and a strategic chamber under the pickguard for increased resonance.
Railhammer Bob Balch Signature pickups complete the package, for a thick tone with enhanced midrange clarity that can handle everything you could throw at it.
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.
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!
