FEBRUARY 13, 2013 - Meshell Ndegeocello and Reverend!
Many bassists find it tough to decide between the punchy low end of a P-bass or the tighter tone of a J-bass. Reverend tackled the problem with the Decision bass, and Bass Gear magazine's latest cover story tells you how and why. The stellar review also includes input from our own Joe Naylor on how the Decision bass measures up and the philosophybehind our entire bass line. Says reviewer Alan Loshbaugh, "[It's] the one bass you can cover any gig with," describing how you can blend the separate "P" Split Brick and "J" Rails pickups to create a tone all your own or to go with the tried and true classic tones these pickups were based on.
This issue of Bass Gear also shows Joe Naylor with one of our favorite bassists, Meshell Ndegeocello, who is interviewed separately and discusses her basses — including her Reverend Decision.
JANUARY 22, 2013 - Reverend Guitars’ Sensei RA Now in Flame Maple!
The guitar that got all of the attention at NAMM 2012 is now in Flame Maple! The Sensei RA FM will now be available in Satin Flame Blue Burst and Satin Flame Violin Burst, both with an ebony fretboard.
The Sensei RA FM features the Railhammer Pickups, which were designed by Reverend Founder, Joe Naylor. The Railhammer Chisel bridge and neck pickups have rails under the wound strings and pole pieces under the plain strings for a perfect tonal balance. Railhammers are natural accomplices to the Reverend Sensei, which has all the response and aggressiveness that a rock guitar should have.
JANUARY 22, 2013 - Ron Asheton Signature Model Proceeds go to Foundation
Reverend Guitars had the honor of working with Ron Asheton on his Reverend Signature Model. Based on our Volcano body, the guitar features three Reverend P-90s and a Rosewood Fretboard, and has that edgy rock tone that Asheton used to create a genre. He used it extensively on his world tours with The Stooges in the 2000s. Always available in Rock Orange with a three lightning bolt logo on the front, and his signature on the back, Reverend Guitars is now offering it in Ice White for 2013. After he passed away in 2009, Reverend decided to send proceeds to The Ron Asheton Foundation, set up and maintained by his sister, Kathy Asheton. “We will assure that his legacy, both as a great artist and a passionate animal lover, lives on for years to come by continuing to provide aid and support to the two things he was most passionate about,” says the Foundation’s Mission Statement. Like all Reverends, the Ron Asheton Signature Model has a Korina body for consistency and clarity, pin-lock tuners, and the exclusive Reverend Bass Contour, which adjusts the low frequencies in the same way that the tone control adjusts the highs.
