JULY 22, 2014 - Reverend Wins NAMM award
Reverend Guitars won the Best in Show: Company to Watch Award at Summer NAMM 2014!

They really stand out on the wall, they have great designs, they’re incredibly well made, and when’s the last time you picked up a phone and got the CEO on the line?” The breakfast awards ceremony, hosted by Music Inc Magazine’s Frank Alkyer, is a NAMM tradition. This is the third time that Reverend has won the award – the previous awards were in 2006 and 2010.

Premier Guitar Magazine sat down with Fu Manchu to talk about their Southern California sound. "We made an effort on this record to make it as fuzzy as possible," says Reverend Signature Artist, Bob Balch. "[W]hen the guys at Reverend suggested having a routed-out chamber in the body underneath the pickguard, I was like, 'hell yeah!' I don’t know exactly why—I don’t build guitars—but it just adds a lot more sustain."
