Reverend Guitars and Monster Music Collaborate on Exclusive Sensei Model

Limited to six pieces and only available at Monster Music.

Levittown, NY (October 27, 2014) -- The Reverend Sensei HB FM is a flame maple gloss rock machine with raw, midrange warmth for authentic rockers. The Monster Music exclusive is a Gloss Turquoise Burst with an ebony fretboard. A double cutaway outfitted with Reverend’s own Classic H humbuckers, the iconoclastic Korina body is capped with a flame maple top. Like all Reverends, The Reverend Sensei HB FM features Reverend’s bass contour, pin-lock tuners, and a graphite nut, all for maximum performance. This model was a natural choice for the exclusive Monster Music Reverend guitar.

Ken Haas of Reverend Guitars and Brian Reardon of Monster Music have forged a long-standing business relationship and friendship based on their warm, yet no-nonsense sales style. Monster Music is Long Island’s old-school rock shop. You can walk in to the Levittown store, ask questions, try out a variety of instruments, and take classes in almost anything you can think of. While they have a significant online presence, Monster Music encourages people to visit and talk with Brian, General Manager Mike Zegelbach, or one of the other knowledgeable employees.

Reverend Guitars’ mission is to produce practical guitars for real players that meld classic style and modern character. Likewise, the customer service at Reverend is both old-fashioned and forward thinking. If someone calls the Reverend headquarters, an actual person picks up the phone, but they also have an active social media presence. The Reverend Sensei HB FM in Gloss Turquoise Burst is only available at Monster Music at 3068 Hempstead Tpke Levittown, NY.

Street: $999

Kenny Greenberg with his main axe, a vintage Gretsch 6118 Double Anniversary that he found at Gruhn Guitars in Nashville for a mere $600. “It had the original pickups, but the finish had been taken off and the headstock had been repaired. So, it’s a great example of a ‘player’s vintage instrument,’” he says.

On his solo debut, the Nashville session wizard discovers his own musical personality in a soundtrack for a movie that wasn’t, with stops in Africa and Mississippi hill country.

Kenny Greenberg has been Nashville’s secret weapon for decades. He’s the guitarist many insiders credit with giving the Nashville sound the rock ’n’ roll edge that’s become de rigueur for big country records since the ’90s. It’s the sound that, in many ways, delivered country music from its roots to sporting events.
