Reverend : Left Handed Guitars 2016

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.

They may only offer three or four left handed Reverend guitars at a time, but we do get new models each year which is really nice to see and helps to keep things fresh. This year we’ve retained the Double Agent and Jetstream 390, and gained two new models in the form of the Sensei RA and Double Agent OG. In addition, Reverend has also offered us the Jetstream 390 in an eye-catching new Oceanside Green finish.

All of these left handed Reverend guitars feature Korina bodies, a signature characteristic on Reverend instruments since 2007. Korina (also known as white limba) is a relatively lightweight wood, and is highly sought after for its excellent resonance and consistent weight. The resonant nature of Korina contributes to guitars which generally have a lively, responsive tone which is rich in harmonics.

These guitars also feature Reverend’s own in-house custom pickups, which are specifically designed and voiced to perfectly compliment each individual instrument.

JetStream 390

This year we’ve managed to retain the dazzling ‘Rock Orange’ finish, and have also gained tons of retro vibe with the new ‘Oceanside Green’ model. Reverend describes the Jetstream 390 as being ‘fat, raw and bluesy but with just the right amount of bite to cut through. An amazing guitar for both clean and distorted tones with enough twang for surf, but thick enough for rock‘.

  • Body : Korina
  • Neck : Maple
  • Fretboard : Maple 22 Fret
  • Pickups : Reverend CP90
  • Bridge : Wilkinson Tremolo
