Reverend : Left Handed Guitars 2017

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 usually 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 seems to be the best year for lefties since we started the site back in 2010. At the time of writing, the Reverend website lists 8 left handed models, which is at least double the selection of previous years!

Left Handed Reverend Guitars 2017

From left to right : Jetstream 390, Sensei RA FM, Double Agent OG 20th Anniversary, Double Agent OG, Double Agent W, Buckshot, Bayoney RA HC, Billy Corgan Signature

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. I’ve tried to include a video link for each guitars so that you can hear each model in action.

JetStream 390

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‘.
