JANUARY 20, 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.
