Gil Parris Signature GPS

The Reverend Gil Parris GPS is the ultimate traditional-meets-modern guitar. While it looks classic, it has tons of Reverend upgrades and is loaded with Fishman Fluence Single Width pickups. A push-pull knob in the bridge tone control switches between the two pickup voicings –a vintage tone and a more muscular “Hot Texas” tone. If you want to play something that looks and sounds traditional, but you want it loaded with modern technology, this guitar is for you.

FISHMAN PICKUPS

The Fishman Fluence Pickup Set. The most coveted, historical tones without the hum. From vintage sweetness and clarity to muscular overwound punch, in the same guitar.

ROASTED MAPLE NECK

Roasted Maple is heat treated at over 300° F to remove sugars, moisture, and impurities. This maple is lighter, more stable, and has a beautiful caramel color. The result is an exceptional maple neck that will require less seasonal adjustment, and boasts a rich vintage look!

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.

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.

PIN-LOCK TUNERS

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.

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.

SIX-BOLT NECK PLATE

Two extra bolts increase mounting pressure of the neck by fifty percent. This makes a stronger neck connection, which improves sustain, tuning stability, and neck alignment.

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.

TRIPLE-TREE STRING TREE

This patent-pending string tree has an extended bar to hold down three strings at a time with just one tree, eliminating G string buzz in the nut slot.

WILKINSON WVS50K TREMOLO

Features include saddles that lock to the baseplate, adjustable arm swing tension, and a push-in/no freeplay arm. Combined with our boneite nut and pin-lock tuners, it stays in tune even under aggressive whammy action.
