When we met Pete Anderson ten years ago, he had an idea for a guitar that had strong initial attack and sustain but kept the traditional hollow-body character. Charmed by the fact that the original Reverend Headquarters was around the corner from his childhood home in Eastpointe, MI, he had heard about Joe Naylor’s reputation for working with artists to help them achieve their sound. After some prototypes and lots of discussions, the Pete Anderson Signature PA-1 was created, featuring the Uni-Brace system: a full-depth Korina brace that connects the top and back of the guitar. It reduces uncontrollable feedback and improves sustain and clarity while maintaining full hollow body tone. Pete continues to play that original Signature guitar at all his shows today.
The Reverend Pete Anderson Signature PA-1 10th Anniversary Edition has all of the same appointments of the original guitar that Joe Naylor created for Pete ten years ago, but with some extra embellishments. There is a special inlay at the 18th fret that says 2008-2018 and a 10th Anniversary badge on the back of the headstock. The back and sides are the highest-grade flame maple, with the same spruce top of the original. The satin natural version has black metal dogeared P90s, and the satin transparent blue version has dogeared nickel P90s. The Reverend Pete Anderson Signature PA-1 10th Anniversary Edition comes in a case.
Pete will be joining us on the NAMM show floor to celebrate the Anniversary, so look for pictures and videos across all the Reverend social media platforms!
