BOB BALCH SIGNATURE
Designed in collaboration with Bob Balch, riffmeister with stoner rock/fuzz metal progenitors Fu Manchu. The understated elegance belies the hot rod nature of this rock machine, which is based on our acclaimed Sensei platform. Unique features include: beveled body edges, satin finish, and a strategic tone chamber under the pickguard for increased resonance. Railhammer Bob Balch Signature pickups complete the package, featuring ceramic magnets and brass covers/baseplates for a thick tone with enhanced midrange clarity that can handle everything from fuzz riffs to jazz comping.
A thumbwheel under the tuner pushes a steel pin up through the post, locking the string in place for exceptional tuning stability and super-fast string changes.
Rails under the wound strings for tight lows. Poles under the plain strings for fat highs. This revolutionary design from Reverend founder Joe Naylor delivers exceptional clarity and punch, and is setting a new standard for rock. For more info visit www.railhammer.com >>
Our dual action rod adjusts in both directions, allowing back bow or forward bow. This assures correct adjustment range is possible regardless of string tension, extreme climate conditions, or the effects of long term aging. It’s also located at the headstock for easy access.
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.
We use a graphite impregnated nut on all Reverend instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability.
This passive bass roll-off is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. It can make a humbucker sound like a single-coil, or give a P-90 that classic twang. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!
