Toledo, OH (June 28, 2018) -- When Reverend Guitars and Meshell Ndegeocello wanted to do a new color for her Signature bass, they wanted to do something special. Meshell decided on the Red-Black-Green color scheme and to name the style in honor of Lumumba–the leader credited with freeing the Congo from Belgium in the mid-twentieth century. A portion of the proceeds will go to the Smithsonian’s National Museum of African American History and Culture – where a prototype of the model is already in the collection.

The Meshell Ndegeocello Fellowship bass is a collaboration between Reverend Guitars and the eclectic bassist known for her versatile chops and soulful phrasing throughout a long and wide-ranging career. Based on Reverend’s Thundergun platform, this bass is both minimalist and versatile, covering everything from warm jazz to percussive funk to aggressive rock. The P-Blade pickup captures that classic p-bass character, but with increased volume, sustain, clarity, and extended low-end response. Other unique features include a reverse headstock and stacked volume/tone knobs.
