Brad Houser Basshouser Fatfish 32

Our original Signature Model with Brad Houser is such a modern classic, we’ve collaborated with him again on his second Reverend Signature Bass. The super resonant semi-hollow body, sustain enhancing raised center section, and P-Blade/Jazz Bomb pickup combo are versatile and formidable. The bass sound huge, even with the easy-playing short scale neck A reverse headstock, block inlays on the fretboard, and entwined circles inlays at the first fret all make this bass that can further refine your unique artistic vision.

CUSTOM PICKUPS

We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.

HIPSHOT ULTRALIGHT TUNERS

These tuners have a housing made of aircraft grade aluminum that makes them extra-light. The difference in weight can be as much as 2-3oz less in the headstock, which means a more balanced bass that’s more comfortable to play. And the tone is great! Your bass is more defined and enhanced with the Hipshot Ultralites.

KORINA BODY

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.

LOCK DOWN BRIDGE

Our bridge features allen bolts that lock each saddle down to the massive base plate. This locks the bridge into one solid unit which enhances clarity and attack, and produces bell-like sustain. This versatile bridge can also be strung string-thru-body or top-load.

STACKED VOLUME/TONE KNOBS

Volume knob on the bottom, with the tone knob on the top, and there’s also a center detent so you can feel where you are in the knob rotation. Simplicity at it’s finest!

FIVE-PIECE NECK

Our bass necks are constructed from five pieces of wood laminated lengthwise. This creates a stronger and more stable neck that’s less prone to warping, twisting, and humps over the life of the instrument.

INITIALED HEADSTOCK

Every Reverend is hand initialed and serial numbered on the back of the headstock by one of our highly skilled technicians who sets up, inspects, and tests every instrument.

PICKUP PAN CONTROL

This control allows you to blend the two pickups with one knob. Roll in the bridge pickup for more midrange punch, or bring up the neck pickup for more low thump and open highs. Dialing in the perfect tone has never been easier!

BONEITE NUT

We use "Boneite," a synthetic bone nut, that is more consistent than natural bone, on all Reverend instruments. It reduces friction, allowing the strings to slide through the nut slots smoothly, improving tuning stability.

DUAL-ACTION TRUSS ROD

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.

CUSTOM JACK PLATE

Our proprietary jack plate features four mounting screws, instead of two. The extra screws prevent the plate from tearing out of the body. Made of steel for durability, the laser etched logo adds an extra touch of class!

PURE TONE JACK

All Reverends use an upgraded jack by Pure Tone Technologies. The Pure Tone jack has dual contacts for improved grip, audio signal and reliability. The most dependable guitar jack available!

10% POTS

We use Alpha control pots with a +-10% rating, tighter and more consistent than a standard pot. Typically used in expensive boutique guitars, but standard issue in all Reverends.

10% POLY CAPS

We use caps with a +-10% rating. Our caps are made to tighter specifications, so they’re more consistent. Made of polyester, they’re also longer lasting, and less affected by temperature than cheaper ceramic caps. Typically used in expensive boutique guitars.
