Reverend Guitars Announces the 20th Anniversary Mercalli Bass

The bass is available in 4- and 5-string versions with a Korina body and custom pickups.

Toledo, OH (March 29, 2017) -- Reverend Guitars is celebrating their twentieth anniversary this year and released two versions of the popular Double Agent guitar. The company has come out with a pair of Reverend Mercalli Basses to elevate the excitement! The Mercalli is available in 4- and 5-string versions. It’s styled beautiful sky blue flame maple with a brushed aluminum pickguard, a 20th Anniversary seal on the back of the headstock, and “1997-2017” inlaid on the fretboard.

Like a standard Reverend Mercalli, both the 4 and the 5 have Korina body wood – a highly resonant tonewood – and are loaded with Reverend’s custom pickups. The Pickup Pan Control dials in the perfect tone. A lockdown bridge enhances clarity and sustain. Hipshot Ultralight Tuners, a six-bolt neck plate, and 5-piece maple and walnut neck all create a balanced, high-performance bass.

We’ll look at ways to use drones in a variety of contexts, from ancient to contemporary, blues to metal, traditional to experimental.
