SIX GUN TL
It’s a Reverend Six Gun TL for the Modern Age! The pickup combination of the Talnico in the bridge and Salnicos in the middle and neck are traditional with a little extra warmth; beefy early 50’s twang, but never harsh. The whole effect is balanced and pleasant. Sporting a Wilkinson WVII 50 tremolo system on a sleek, offset Korina body, with the five-way switch, and Reverend’s own Bass Contour Control, players can go from a rich shimmer and twang to a leaner more traditional tone. Modern styling means that while this guitar may sometimes sound traditional, it doesn’t look or feel like you borrowed it from your dad’s collection.
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!
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.
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.
VARI-CLAW TREMOLO CLAW
This 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.
