Reverend Guitars announced their Limited Edition for 2018: The Tricky Gomez LE. Their retro guitar now comes in a funky, vintage two-tone finish. The front of each one is a bold, satin color, and the backs and sides are an analogous satin metallic. There are four options to choose from: mulberry mist top with metallic red back, deep sea blue top with metallic superior blue back, metallic alpine top with outfield ivy back, and Venetian gold top with root beer metallic back. Each version has a Pearloid pickguard, off-white binding, and a “Limited Edition 2018” badge on the back of the headstock. Reverend Guitars CEO Ken Haas says there will only be 10 of each option available.
The original Tricky Gomez is based on the Manta Ray platform but tricked out for an offbeat sixties look and feel with modern playability. The result was a highly resonant semi-hollow body with Revtron pickups that’s rich in harmonics with a punchy tone. A Bigsby tremolo completes the retro theme, and the roller bridge and Pin-Lock tuners keep it in tune. Perfect for the player who wants the raw tone and vibe of a vintage pawnshop prize, but who needs a reliable and stable instrument
