Reverend Unveils Gilded Pete Anderson Models

Two of Pete Anderson's signature Reverend guitars are now offered in an exclusive gold flake finish.

Livonia, MI (September 2, 2013) -- Reverend Guitars is offering two of the Reverend Pete Anderson Signature Models in Gold Metal Flake. There are just ten each of the Reverend Pete Anderson Signature Eastsider and the Reverend Pete Anderson PA-1 RT, for the best in hot-rod-cool sound and style. They are only available at Wildwood Guitars, Colorado’s premier guitar store. The Pete Anderson Signature Eastsider-T is in homage to vintage guitars, with a number of traditional features, while still maintaining the famed Reverend innovation. It has a chambered Korina body, a satin finish, and a compound-radius maple fretboard. With a push-pull phase switch, custom alnico pickups, stainless steel saddles, and a graphite nut, it adds up to the perfect old-meets-new guitar.

The Pete Anderson Signature PA-1 RT is loaded with Reverend’s own Revtron pickups for extra midrange punch and twang on the PA-1 platform -- a large, Maple hollow-body with Reverend’s proprietary Uni-Brace system. The unique structure controls the feedback that you would normally expect in similar guitars, while adding sustain. The model also has a 3-piece Korina neck, a 15th fret neck and body joint for better access to the higher points on the neck, “R” embossed knobs, and an “R” logo pickguard. The exclusive Reverend Bass Contour, a variable bass roll-off that adjusts the pickup voicing, is featured on this model as well. All PA-1s come with a Bigsby B70.

“It’s influenced by the classics. The look is very important – you wear it – but it’s also a musician’s tool, and everything has to work. Everything continues to evolve for Reverend, and that’s part of our philosophy. The last Reverend is the best Reverend.” – Joe Naylor, Founder of Reverend Guitars.

When you consider stompboxes that have achieved ubiquity and longevity, images of Tube Screamers, Big Muffs, or Boss’ DD series delays probably flash before your eyes. It’s less likely that TC Electronic’s Stereo Chorus Flanger comes to mind. But when you consider that its fundamental architecture has remained essentially unchanged since 1976 and that it has consistently satisfied persnickety tone hounds like Eric Johnson, it’s hard to not be dazzled by its staying power—or wonder what makes it such an indispensable staple for so many players.

While Monolord has no shortage of the dark and heavy, guitarist and vocalist Thomas V Jäger comes at it from a perspective more common to pop songsmiths.

Melodies, hooks, clean tones, and no guitar solos. Are we sure this Elliott Smith fan fronts a doom-metal band? (We’re sure!)

Legend has it the name Monolord refers to a friend of the band with the same moniker who lost hearing in his left ear, and later said it didn’t matter if the band recorded anything in stereo, because he could not hear it anyway. It’s a funny, though slightly tragic, bit of backstory, but that handle is befitting in yet another, perhaps even more profound, way. Doom and stoner metal are arguably the torch-bearing subgenres for hard rock guitar players, and if any band seems to hold the keys to the castle at this moment, it’s Monolord.
