Pete Anderson Eastsider Baritone

Pete Anderson was looking for a baritone with a retro feel that delivers the deepest possible twang tone with upgraded features and a tremolo that works great. We created the Reverend Pete Anderson Eastsider Baritone – a chambered Korina body with a 28 5/8” scale full-length baritone neck. Three Alnico pickups provide extra clarity for low tunings. The Wilkinson WV6 SB Tremolo is a traditional style trem with stamped steel saddles and a steel block for extra twangy tone, adjustable arm tension, and modified mounting holes to improve stability. In classic Satin Tobacco Burst or Satin Black, The Reverend Pete Anderson Eastsider Baritone hits all those surf, spaghetti western, and country deep sounds.

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. 

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.

CHAMBERED BODY

The Eastsider has three strategically placed chambers underneath the pickguard for all the increase in resonance and warmth that you'd expect. The placement of the cavities also reduces neck-diving balance issues found in most chambered guitars.

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 on the back of the headstock by Zack Green, our highly skilled technician who sets up, inspects, and tests every instrument.

Wilkinson WV6 SB (Steel Block) Tremolo

The Wilkinson WV6 SB Tremolo uses single-piece, stamped saddles for an old-school vibe, while retaining the functionality you've come to expect from all Reverend guitar models.

VARI-CLAW TREMOLO CLAW

This innovative claw gives you the option of 3 springs in the middle for a firm tremolo feel, or 2 springs on the outside for a softer feel. The offset hook design lets you switch between 3 or 2 springs, with little or no cumbersome adjustment of the claw needed.

CUSTOM EMBOSSED KNOBS

All Pete Anderson models have special knobs which feature an embossed "R". Custom cool!

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.

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.

ANGLED NECK HEEL

All Reverend solidbody guitars in the Bolt-On series feature a low profile, angled neck heel. This improves comfort and hand access when you’re reaching for those high notes!

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. A standard jack has single contacts, but the Pure Tone jack has dual contacts for improved grip, audio signal and reliability. The most dependable guitar jack available.

TREBLE BLEED CIRCUIT

All Reverend guitars have a treble bleed circuit, preserving the treble when you roll back the volume control. When you roll back a standard volume control, the tone loses treble and becomes dull sounding. Now you can turn down and still sound great!

10% POTS

We use Alpha control pots with a +-10% rating. While a typical pot is +-20%, our pots are built to tighter specifications, making them more consistent. Typically used in expensive boutique guitars, but standard issue in all Reverends.

10% POLY CAPS

We use caps with a +-10% rating, while a typical cap is +-20%. 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.
