Reverend releases a new kickin'' guitar.

Warren, MI (July 21, 2008) -- Another set-neck beast has been unleashed by Reverend Guitars. This time, they provide a kick to the guitar market with the Roundhouse RT. The RT features two Reverend RevTron pickups loaded in a single-cutaway solidbody, block inlays, neck binding, Reverend Pin-Lock tuners and Bass Contour control.

The pickups are custom designed — the bridge pickup is slightly hotter then the neck pickup for balanced tone and volume. The RevTrons are wound about 5% hotter overall than the originals for more sustain and punch, which should help player’s reach those foundational blues and rock tones. The solid korina body and neck contribute to a resonant, light and lively instrument that responds to the player''s touch.

These guitars are some of the first Reverend models to have the standard features of Reverend Pin-Lock tuners, single layered binding and pearloid block inlays. All of these will become standard on all other set-neck models by the end of ’08.
