The new Reverend Super Rev guitar range is a limited run of ‘hot-rodded’ single pickup guitars based on the colour schemes of old ’60s and ’70s muscle cars from the US. Will these guitars be worth taking for a spin?

SuperRev

As though the racing stripes and a Circle R brand on fire surrounded by “SuperRev” wasn’t enough to grab your attention, these guitars also come in three bright, citrus colours – ’69 Orange, ’69 Lime, and ’69 Yellow. Each guitar is made from Korina for the main body, and all feature a set 24 and 3/4″  scale length three-piece Korina neck design. They should have plenty of sustain as they are all fixed-bridge designs, too.

Ebony is used for the fretboard and it has a modern 12″ radius, so is pretty flat and is loaded with medium oval frets.

Hardware

Reverend has used a traditional Stop Tail and Tune-O-matic style bridge across the series. I would imagine they will have very Gibson-like stability, due to the similar construction method. The machine heads are locking and use a pin lock system, so these instruments should be easy to string up. This will add to the tuning stability overall.

Railhammer

The single Railhammer Alnico Grande pickup is a custom humbucking design and utilises a semi rail (for the E,A and D strings), three pole piece design, rather than the more traditional six slugs of a regular humbucker.

You also get the Reverend Bass Contour control, as well as the more traditional Volume and Tone controls you would expect. This is a passive bass roll-off and is used for tightening up the low end. Reverend state it can be used to ‘re-voice’ the pickup and make it sound more like a P90.

Limited Run

These guitars are available to buy from now until July 2018 and so if you fancy a lurid coloured, hot-rodded, single-pickup ‘Muscle Guitar’ then you have a little while to get yourself one ordered.

RRP – USD 1329 plus shipping/taxes, with a hard case available separately
