Reverend Guitars Announces the New Eastsider and Sensei RA

The guitar is an homage to vintage guitars with a number of traditional features, while still maintaining the Reverend innovation.

Livonia, MI (Jan 16, 2012) -- Reverend Guitars is launching the second Pete Anderson Signature model, the Eastsider. The guitar is an homage to vintage guitars with a number of traditional features, while still maintaining the Reverend innovation.

The Eastsider has a Korina body, a satin finish, and a compound radius fretboard. Add to that: custom alnico pickups, stainless steel saddles, and a graphite nut.

Reverend Guitars is the 1st to offer Railhammer brand pickups as a stock option in a guitar. The Chisel bridge and neck pickups have rails under the wound strings and pole pieces under the plain strings for a perfect tonal balance. The pickups were invented by Reverend’s founder, Joe Naylor.

Railhammers are natural accomplices to the Reverend Sensei. A Satin Black or Wine Red finish and an ebony fretboard complete the model. The Sensei RA is now available at Reverend Dealers worldwide. It is the first in the RA series, all of which will feature the Railhammer brand pickups.

This rare English Tonemaster was made circa 1957.

The Valco-produced English Tonemaster is a rare, lap-steel-inspired gem from the 1950s—when genres and guitar design were fluid.

The 1950s were a peculiar time for the electric guitar. Innovators, designers, and tinkerers were pushing the boundaries of the instrument, while musicians were experimenting with various playing techniques and sounds. There was an evolution of sorts (or de-evolution, depending on your slant) from solidbody “sit-down” guitars, like pedal and lap steels, to “stand-up” or “upright” solidbody electrics. If you look at an early Fender catalog—let’s say from 1953—you’ll see the Telecaster (and Esquire), the Precision Bass, and then a whole bunch of steel guitars. There was a shift underway, and many manufacturers began to blur the lines of what a guitar should look, sound, and play like.
