A 3-pickup korina V, a handwired germanium Ron Asheton Real Cool Fuzz, and an orange-striped strap that combines to honor the Stooges axeman.

Toledo, OH (November 22, 2017) -- Reverend Guitars, Daredevil Pedals, Souldier Straps, and the Ron Asheton Foundation are proud to introduce the Ron Asheton Legacy Fun Pak. Only 12 are available, exclusively at Riff City Guitars in Minneapolis, MN. The included Reverend Ron Asheton Signature Guitar is a Korina V with 3 of Reverend’s CP90s and Reverend’s own bass contour control, which was initially created in conjunction with Ron Asheton. It is great guitar for percussive attack and edgy rock tones. Also included is the Daredevil Pedals Ron Asheton Real Cool Fuzz, a hand-wired germanium fuzz pedal based on the 60’s Tone Bender that Asheton used on the first two Stooges Album. Souldier Straps created an orange-striped strap to go with the package in a pattern that’s quintessentially Ron. The Pack comes with a pin from the Ron Asheton Foundation, and a Ron Asheton signed 5” X 8” poster.

Some of the proceeds from the pack go to the Ron Asheton Foundation, an organization set up by his family after his death to support two causes he cared about greatly: animal welfare and music. The Foundation has given to humane societies, animal welfare leagues, and just families affected by natural disasters. On the music side, they provide scholarships and work with musicians of all ages to develop and promote musical endeavors.

The Onyx utilizes a unique process transforming firm veg-tan leather into thick, supple leather.

Winnipeg, Canada (November 7, 2017) -- Levy’s Leathers has introduced the new MV317ONX Onyx strap. The Onyx utilizes a unique process transforming firm veg-tan leather into a thick supple leather that needs no breaking in period – it’s super comfortable from day one.

The struck-through dying process and matt finish gives the straps a deep rich color that will almost immediately begin to develop a beautiful patina characteristic of only the finest leather. These straps will be comfortable immediately and look better with age. Each strap is also decorated with chrome finished nailheads. Available in black (BLK), brown (BRN) and tan (TAN).
