1. Where are Reverend instruments made?
Reverend guitars are built in South Korea by Mirr Music Co. This company is owned by Hank Cho, a third generation guitar builder who’s attention to detail, high quality control, and ability to accurately produce our unique designs (as opposed to the same old knock-offs) made Mirr a perfect partner for Reverend. These guitars are top-notch in every way… the wood is properly cured, the finishes are thin, the neck pockets are tight, the frets are polished, the components are high quality, and the overall fit and finish are first rate.
Every guitar model is designed by award-winning luthier and Reverend founder Joe Naylor. All components, woods, dimensions and materials have been specified by Joe for maximum performance and serviceability.
Our goal is not to build the cheapest Korean guitar, but rather to raise the bar for performance. It costs a little more to do that, but the result is a pro level guitar that is gig ready right out of the box.
2. Does Reverend offer separate pickguards, pickups, or necks?
Sorry, we do not offer any separate components. We do offer small repair parts, email firstname.lastname@example.org for availability. Replacement custom pickguards can be made by www.pickguardian.com, and you can also find several other pickguard makers through an online search.
3. Does Reverend offer repair, maintenance, or modification services?
We recommend consulting with the dealer you purchased from, or with a qualified repair shop in your area. Otherwise email us at email@example.com for available services.
4. Which graphite saddles fit my guitar?

5. Can Reverend install a Bigsby tremolo?
We don’t install Bigsbys, but you can install one on a non-tremolo guitar with the Vibramate kit.
6. Can Reverend install a Stetsbar tremolo?

We sell them here: Store.
11. On my Les Trem, the bolt that holds the arm on broke, do you have replacements?
We don’t have that particular part. We recommend replacing it with a 5mm thread x 16mm long – roundhead bolt. Most bigger hardware stores will have them. It’s actually stronger and easier to adjust than the original bolt.
