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

Knowing how to function in different keys is crucial to improvising in any context. One path to fretboard mastery is learning how to move through positions across the neck. Even something as simple as a three-note-per-string major scale can offer loads of options when it’s time to step up and rip. I’m going to outline seven technical sequences, each one focusing on a position of a diatonic major scale. This should provide a fun workout for the fingers and hopefully inspire a few licks of your own.
