Connecticut, US (June 4, 2013) -- AMBROSONICS, LLC, a high technology music product company, introduces the Pickup Director now available in different models with expandable options. Pickup Director is a programmable and re-configurable pickup switching system with patented optical switching technologies. It’s designed to fit onboard many guitars and basses and runs from a single 9V battery. AMBROSONICS also offers a remote power pack so NO battery is required in the instrument.

The Pickup Director allows pickups to be wired in series, parallel, series/parallel, in-phase or out-of-phase and to blend Piezo pickups as well. The push/pull POT puts you into MENU mode and by turning the pot, auditions the different sounds. Push the POT down and it stores to the 3-Position Bank Select switch provided and your 5-Position Blade Switch or 3-Position Selector in SG/Les Paul guitars. Both models allow for upgrading so you’re not locked in. There are also connections for our Mezzanine Expander boards that allow Hum, Single, Hum configurations, programmable 2 band, 3 band or 4 band EQ and many new surprises to come soon.

This 1964 Vibrolux Reverb arrived in all-original condition, right down to a two-prong power cord and a death cap wired to the ground switch. The author’s well-worn Strat is the perfect companion.

This month, I’d like to share the story of my 1964 Fender Vibrolux Reverb. It was a really risky purchase that had some big surprises.

Fat tones from a sweet niche where Les Paul, Gretsch, and Telecaster share the limelight.

Copious, unexpected tones. Cool, useful bass contour control. Very nice build quality. Excellent value.

Heavy.

If you only pay casual attention to Reverend guitars, it’s easy to overlook how different their instruments can be. Some of that may be due to the way Reverends look. There are longstanding styling themes and strong family likenesses among models that can make differentiation a challenge for uninitiated guitar spotters. For instance, the Flatroc reviewed here has more or less the same body as the Charger, Buckshot, and Double Agent OG (which has an entirely different body than the more Jazzmaster-like Double Agent W). If you don’t have an experienced Reverend enthusiast at your side, it can all be a bit mind bending.
