Wondering which left handed Reverend guitars and basses are currently available? You’re in the right place!
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-inspired designs.
They usually only offer two or three 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 and exciting.
Occasionally the brand also offers limited edition models which are exclusive to specific stores. For example, a (gorgeous!) pink Jetstream 390 was previously available exclusively at Merchant City Music in the UK.
Does Reverend Make Left Handed Guitars?
Yes! At the time of writing two left handed Reverend guitars are available, both solid-body electrics. This year Reverend is offering the Double Agent OG and Double Agent W as lefty versions.
Unfortunately, the brand does not currently offer left handed Reverend bass models.
Left Handed Reverend Guitars
All 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 that is rich in harmonics.
All Reverend guitars also utilize a ‘Boneite‘ nut. This synthetic bone nut is claimed to be more consistent than traditional bone nuts, and also increases tuning stability by reducing friction.
In addition, they feature Reverend’s own in-house custom pickups, which are specifically designed and voiced to perfectly complement each individual instrument. I’ve tried to include a video link for each guitar so that you can hear each model in action.
Double Agent W
The Double Agent W pairs the power of a bridge humbucker with the sweeter tone of a P90 in the neck, and adds a Wilkinson tremolo for extra versatility.
- Body : Korina
- Neck : Roasted Maple
- Fretboard : Roasted Maple 22 Fret
- Pickups : Reverend HA5 and 9A5
- Bridge : Wilkinson Tremolo
- Colors : Outfield Ivy
See and hear the Double Agent W in the demonstration video below.
Double Agent OG
The Double Agent OG pairs the power of a bridge humbucker with the sweeter tone of a P90 in the neck, which when combined gives a unique depth-meets-twang vibe!
Reverend’s bass contour control allows you to tighten up the lower-end, or give the bridge humbucker a sound closer to a single-coil pickup. Completely change the tone of the guitar in just one quick turn!
- Body : Korina
- Neck : Roasted Maple
- Fretboard : Rosewood 22 Fret
- Pickups : Reverend HA5 Bridge & 9A5 Neck
- Bridge : TOM with Stoptail
- Colors : Metallic Silver Freeze
Here’s an excellent demonstration video that will show you some of the sounds that the Double Agent OG is capable of!
Frequently Asked Questions
Where Are Reverend Guitars Made?
Reverend guitars are currently manufactured in Korea, with all models receiving a final quality check and set up at the brand’s Ohio, USA headquarters before being shipped to retailers.
Are Reverend Guitars Any Good?
Reverend guitars are well made, and reasonably priced instruments. The company has a relatively small stable of guitars which allows them to focus on keeping the quality high, and this is reflected in their numerous awards and favorable player reviews.
Who Plays Reverend Guitars?
Reverend currently has a number of artists on their roster, many of whom have their own signature models. Well-known artists who play Reverend guitars include Billy Corgan, Reeves Gabrels, Robin Finck, Greg Koch, and Mike Watt.
Reverend recently revamped their website and this has made it slightly more difficult to find the left handed models. Where there used to be a clearly defined left-handed section, the southpaw models are now mixed in with their right-handed brethren. Not to fret though as they’re still pretty easy to spot!
There is also a left handed filter that you can use to find the left handed models. When browsing guitars, hit the ‘specs’ menu item and you’ll find a ‘lefty’ filter in the dropdown menu.
