Reverend to Release Pete Anderson Signature

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

The session ace’s signature model offers a wide range of tones at the flip of a switch … or five.

Hello and welcome back to Mod Garage. Not long ago, I came home late from a band rehearsal, still overly excited about the new songs we played. I got myself a coffee (I know, it's a crazy procedure to calm down) and turned on the TV. I ended up with an old Bonanza episode from the ’60s, the mother of all Western TV series. Hearing the theme after a long time instantly reminded me of the great Al Caiola, who is the prolific session guitarist who plays on the song. With him in mind, I looked up the ’60s Epiphone “Al Caiola” model and decided I want to talk about the Epiphone/Gibson Tone Expressor system that was used in this guitar.

Slinky playability, snappy sounds, and elegant, comfortable proportions distinguish an affordable 0-bodied flattop.

Satisfying, slinky playability. Nice string-to-string balance. Beautiful, comfortable proportions.

Embracing the idea of an acoustic flattop made with anything other than wood can, understandably, be tricky stuff. There’s a lot of precedent for excellent-sounding acoustics built with alternative materials, though. Carbon-fiber flattops can sound amazing and I’ve been hooked by the sound and playability of Ovation and Adamas instruments many times.
