Reverend Guitars Unveils the Six Gun TL

The company swaps out the regular single-coil at the bridge for their own T-style Talnico pickup.

Toledo, OH (June 28, 2018) -- Reverend Guitars has rebooted the classic Six Gun model by swapping out the regular single-coil at the bridge for their own T-style Talnico pickup. The beefier, early 50’s tone contributes lots of traditional twang but is never harsh. Reverend’s single coil Salnico pickups in the middle and neck positions are traditionally voiced with a little extra warmth, so the whole effect is balanced and pleasant. Reverend also changed up the look for more modern styling in Burnt Brick, Metallic Silver Freeze, or Chronic Blue, with black pickguards on all three colors.

The Reverend Six Gun TL sports a Wilkinson WVII 50 tremolo system on a sleek, offset Korina body. With the Talnico bridge pickup and Salnico middle and neck pickups, the five-way switch, and Reverend’s own Bass Contour Control, players can go from a rich shimmer and twang to a leaner more traditional tone.

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.

It’s not difficult to replace the wiring in your pickups, but it takes some finesse. Here’s a step-by-step guide.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. After numerous requests, this month we’ll have a closer look at changing wires on a single-coil pickup. As our guinea pig for this, I chose a standard Stratocaster single-coil, but it’s basically the same on all single-coil pickups and easy to transfer. It’s not complicated but it is a delicate task to not destroy your pickup during this process, and there are some things you should keep in mind.

The emotional wallop of the acoustic guitar sometimes flies under the radar. Even if you mostly play electric, here are some things to consider about unplugging.

I have a love-hate relationship with acoustic guitars. My infatuation with the 6-string really blasted off with the Ventures. That’s the sound I wanted, and the way to get it was powered by electricity. Before I’d even held a guitar, I knew I wanted a Mosrite, which I was sure was made of fiberglass like the surfboards the Beach Boys, Surfaris, and the Challengers rode in their off time. Bristling with space-age switchgear and chrome-plated hardware, those solidbody hotrod guitars were the fighter jets of my musical dreams. I didn’t even know what those old-timey round-hole guitars were called. As the singing cowboys Roy Rogers and Gene Autrey strummed off into the sunset, the pace of technology pushed the look and sound of the electric guitar (and bass) into the limelight and into my heart. Imagine my disappointment when I had to begin my guitar tutelage on a rented Gibson “student” acoustic. At least it sort of looked like the ones the Beatles occasionally played. Even so, I couldn’t wait to trade it in.
