"but manages to retain definition, string-to-string clarity, and presence."
JULY 22, 2014 - Reverend Wins NAMM award
Reverend Guitars won the Best in Show: Company to Watch Award at Summer NAMM 2014! Gabe O’Brien of Larry’s Music presented the award. “There's nothing more boring than a music store filled with the same four guitar shapes,” said O’Brien, “Reverend has such a strong presence. 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.

I don’t know exactly why—I don’t build guitars—but it just adds a lot more sustain."
