Reverend is introducing its first fully hollow model in collaboration with country legend Pete Anderson

December 2, 2008 -- Pete Anderson, country guitar legend and Grammy winning artist and producer, has collaborated with Reverend Guitars on a new signature model to debut at January's NAMM show.

This model is Reverend's first full hollowbody, which is loosely based on Pete's favorite designs from the fifties and sixities. The guitar features two Reverend P-90 pickups, laminated single-cutaway body, Bigsby tremolo, locking tuners, and the innovative Uni-Brace low-feedback bracing.

Reverend says, the satin finish and vintage appointments project a low key "pawnshop-prize" look that contradicts the guitars high performance design.

Laminated hollow body
Two Reverend P-90 pickups (RWRP neck pickup)
3-way pickup switch
Reverend Pin-Lock tuners
Volume Tone and Bass Contour controls with 24.75" scale
One-piece korina neck Dual-action truss rod
Rosewood fingerboard with 12" radius
Two tall/narrow frets Bigsby tremolo

List: $TBA

You can meet Pete Anderson and check out the new signature model at the Reverend booth at January NAMM on Friday and Saturday at 2:00 p.m.

This 1964 Vibrolux Reverb arrived in all-original condition, right down to a two-prong power cord and a death cap wired to the ground switch. The author’s well-worn Strat is the perfect companion.

How our columnist’s risky purchase turned out to be a dusty pre-CBS jewel.

This month, I’d like to share the story of my 1964 Fender Vibrolux Reverb. It was a really risky purchase that had some big surprises.

Fat tones from a sweet niche where Les Paul, Gretsch, and Telecaster share the limelight.

Copious, unexpected tones. Cool, useful bass contour control. Very nice build quality. Excellent value.



Reverend Flatroc Bigsby


If you only pay casual attention to Reverend guitars, it’s easy to overlook how different their instruments can be. Some of that may be due to the way Reverends look. There are longstanding styling themes and strong family likenesses among models that can make differentiation a challenge for uninitiated guitar spotters. For instance, the Flatroc reviewed here has more or less the same body as the Charger, Buckshot, and Double Agent OG (which has an entirely different body than the more Jazzmaster-like Double Agent W). If you don’t have an experienced Reverend enthusiast at your side, it can all be a bit mind bending.
