Reverend Unveils Gilded Pete Anderson Models

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.

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.

Mdou Moctar has led his Tuareg crew around the world, but their hometown performances in Agadez, Niger, last year were their most treasured.

On the Tuareg band’s Funeral for Justice, they light a fiery, mournful pyre of razor-sharp desert-blues riffs and political calls to arms.

Mdou Moctar, the performing moniker of Tuareg guitar icon Mahamadou “Mdou” Souleymane, has played some pretty big gigs. Alongside guitarist Ahmoudou Madassane, drummer Souleymane Ibrahim, and bassist Mikey Coltun, Moctar has led his band’s kinetic blend of rock, psych, and Tuareg cultural traditions like assouf and takamba to Newport Folk Festival, Pitchfork Music Festival, and, just this past April, to the luxe fields of Indio, California, for Coachella. Off-kilter indie-rock darlings Parquet Courts brought them across the United States in 2022, after which they hit Europe for a run of headline dates.
