Reverend Guitars, Daredevil Pedals, and Souldier Straps Collaborate on the Ron Asheton Legacy Fun Pack

A 3-pickup korina V, a handwired germanium Ron Asheton Real Cool Fuzz, and an orange-striped strap that combines to honor the Stooges axeman.

Toledo, OH (November 22, 2017) -- Reverend Guitars, Daredevil Pedals, Souldier Straps, and the Ron Asheton Foundation are proud to introduce the Ron Asheton Legacy Fun Pak. Only 12 are available, exclusively at Riff City Guitars in Minneapolis, MN. The included Reverend Ron Asheton Signature Guitar is a Korina V with 3 of Reverend’s CP90s and Reverend’s own bass contour control, which was initially created in conjunction with Ron Asheton. It is great guitar for percussive attack and edgy rock tones. Also included is the Daredevil Pedals Ron Asheton Real Cool Fuzz, a hand-wired germanium fuzz pedal based on the 60’s Tone Bender that Asheton used on the first two Stooges Album. Souldier Straps created an orange-striped strap to go with the package in a pattern that’s quintessentially Ron. The Pack comes with a pin from the Ron Asheton Foundation, and a Ron Asheton signed 5” X 8” poster.

Some of the proceeds from the pack go to the Ron Asheton Foundation, an organization set up by his family after his death to support two causes he cared about greatly: animal welfare and music. The Foundation has given to humane societies, animal welfare leagues, and just families affected by natural disasters. On the music side, they provide scholarships and work with musicians of all ages to develop and promote musical endeavors.

On all Reverend Guitars, there is a Boneite nut and locking tuners, Reverend’s Bass Contour Control, and a dual-action truss rod – 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.

Luthier Dave Helmer shows you how to cure buzzy strings, bad intonation, gnarly frets, high action, and other common troubles with off-the-shelf axes.

Guitars are the best. We love them. It’s fun to fall in love with a guitar at a store, buy it, and proudly bring it home. But we’ve all been there … where after a month that new guitar is just not playing as good as it was before. As guitar players, we know what feels good and what feels bad when it comes to playability. Maybe you have setup preferences that you like on all your guitars, or maybe you want to experiment with changes to your setup?
