Reverend Pete Anderson Eastsider S - Satin Midnight Black - RM
PETE ANDERSON EASTSIDER SThis plank may look standard at first glance, but it’s factory hot-rodded and stage ready right out of the box. Country/roots-rock guitar legend and Grammy winning artist/producer Pete Anderson is well known for his vintage T guitar. We worked together to modernize it while keeping faithful to the original character. Modifications include: chambered body, stainless steel saddles, compound radius fretboard (10″ to 14″), "R" embossed knobs, and a push-pull studio switch in the tone control (turns on neck & bridge pickups together, allowing a total of 7 pickup combinations).WILKINSON WVS50 IIK TREMOLOFeatures 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.VARI-CLAW TREMOLO CLAWThis innovative claw gives you the option of 3 springs in the middle for a firm tremolo feel, or 2 springs on the outside for a softer feel. The offset hook design lets you switch between 3 or 2 springs, with little or no cumbersome adjustment of the claw needed.ROASTED MAPLE NECKRoasted 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!DUAL-ACTION TRUSS RODOur 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.CHAMBERED BODYThe Eastsider has three strategically placed chambers underneath the pickguard for all the increase in resonance and warmth that you'd expect. The placement of the cavities also reduces neck-diving balance issues found in most chambered guitars.CUSTOM PICKUPSWe 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. KORINA BODYKorina (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.PIN-LOCK TUNERSA 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.SIX-BOLT NECK PLATETwo extra bolts increase mounting pressure of the neck by fifty percent. This makes a stronger neck connection, which improves sustain, tuning stability, and neck alignment.CUSTOM JACK PLATEOur proprietary jack plate features four mounting screws, instead of two. The extra screws prevent the plate from tearing out of the body. Made of steel for durability, the laser etched logo adds an extra touch of class!TREBLE BLEED CIRCUITAll 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!10% POLY CAPSWe use caps with a +-10% rating, while a typical cap is +-20%. Our caps are made to tighter specifications, so they’re more consistent. Made of polyester, they’re also longer lasting, and less affected by temperature than cheaper ceramic caps. Typically used in expensive boutique guitars.
