Reverend Guitars Updates the Flatroc

Reverend Guitars is re-releasing the Reverend Flatroc. This version has the upgraded Reverend Guitars Retroblast pickups and a Bigsby B50 equipped with Reverend Guitars' Soft Touch Spring. The Retroblast pickups are mini-humbuckers that hit the sweet spot between underpowered and harsh with the midrange punch, chimey highs, and string-to-string definition people want from mini-humbuckers. The Soft Touch Spring gives the Bigsby a "broken-in" feeling that adds to the utility of the Bigsby system. The Reverend Flatroc is available in Transparent White, Rock Orange, or Metallic Emerald.


Like all Reverend Guitars, this guitar has a Korina body. A Boneite nut and locking tuners, Reverend's Bass Contour Control, and a dual-action truss rod are all for maximum performance. You can't be different if you're playing what everyone else is. Visit www.reverendguitars.com to start your journey towards being an individual.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
