Reverend Guitars is an American guitar company, founded in 1996 by guitar and amp technician Joe Naylor. The company is widely known for their unconventional construction methods and retro designs.
One trait of Reverend that I really respect is that they do seem to refresh their lefty line-up every single year. They may only offer a small number of left handed guitars, but we do get new models each year which is really nice to see (take note Fender!). 2014 sees the Manta Ray and Double Agent models being introduced as southpaw versions.
Left Handed Reverend Guitars 2014
Warm and lively, with the acoustic richness and overtones of a full size semi-hollow. P-90?s add a raw upper-mid edge and percussive attack to the recipe. The 1-3/4 inch thick body is slim and manageable and the flat top has a clean, fresh look. Solid wood construction is featured throughout, with no plywood. The back, sides and center block are produced from one slab of Korina which is routed from the top, and then capped with a solid maple flat top. Excellent sustain and attack are coupled with substantial resonance, for a complex and responsive tone.
Have you ever wanted the power and girth of a bridge humbucker, and the sweet/bluesy tone of a neck P-90 in one axe? Then this is your guitar. The two pickups complement each other perfectly, allowing you to switch seamlessly between two different tonal characters without losing volume or punch. And combined, they offer up a unique balls-meets-twang tone unlike anything else.
The Reverend website employs a clearly separate section for left handed guitars at the bottom of their guitar page – you can’t really ask for much more than that. Each individual product page is packed full of informative specification listings and plenty of high quality photos of the guitars. Reverend have really ticked all of the boxes.
