Reverend : Left Handed Guitars 2011

Neal August 26, 2011 0

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.

Unfortunately 2011 brings the southpaw community a smaller selection of left handed guitar options from Reverend.  The Reverend Club King RT is a new addition, but we have also lost the Sensei and Flatroc models from last year’s left handed range.

Let’s take a look…
