OVERVIEW

A fresh design with Railhammer pickups and deluxe appointments.

The Reverend BC-1 Billy Corgan Signature Electric Guitar has a fresh design with classic and modern elements that come together in a unique way. The raised center section with thinner wings and strategic chambers under the pickguard add resonance and reduce weight, while a string-thru body bridge provides maximum sustain and percussive attack.

Railhammer Billy Corgan Signature Pickups meld P90 snap with humbucker chunk, and no hum! And, finally, the body is topped with a segmented aluminum pickguard for a modern, yet timeless look. Let this guitar inspire you. Case sold separately.

Railhammer Billy Corgan signature pickups

Part of Railhammer’s new Humcutter Series, these pickups were developed with Billy to capture the clarity and dynamics of a P90, but with the thick tone and low noise of a humbucker. 

Chambered korina body
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium lightweight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities.  It is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.  On the BC-1 there are strategic chambers under the pickguard to add even more resonance and reduce weight.

Pin-lock tuners
A thumbwheel under the tuner pushes a steel pin up through the post, locking the string in place for exceptional tuning stability and super-fast string changes. Also, the posts are custom height, eliminating the need for a second string tree.

String-thru body bridge

String-thru body design and stainless steel saddles for a percussive attack that provides maximum sustain and a ringing, solid tone.

Low profile knobs / bass contour
All the controls feature the classic low profile knob shape, rendered in a chrome finish. The passive Bass Contour is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!

Graphite nut

Reverend use a graphite impregnated nut on all their instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability.

      Comments about Reverend BC-1 Billy Corgan Signature Electric Guitar:

      Ex-professional musician. I liked everything I read about it, and bought one. At first it was annoying, because I was used to my Les Pauls. But I found that if I set my Marshall in high gain mode this guitar would shine. Unique pickups. I never liked using the high gain, on any my amps, but this guitar sounds robust on the high gain channel. I have been trying to find a new sound for myself, after decades of using my vintage rock sound. This Reverend guitar is getting me there. It is well made, simple, lightweight and has a comfortable neck. Clean or distorted, the BC-1 cuts through the mix, not as good as an LP, but pretty close. And for a single coil guitar that is kinda ground breaking. I'm not a Pumpkins fan, but Billy Corgan did do something special with this guitar. Be warned, it is different from all your other guitars. If you are NOT looking for a unique or different sound, then this guitar is not for you. If you are looking for something different then this may be the guitar for you. For the price it is an excellent deal. I have been a sound-explorer all my life, and the Reverend BC-1 is allowing me to find new turf to play on. How cool is that.

      Comments about Reverend BC-1 Billy Corgan Signature Electric Guitar:

      Really great Guitar, kind of cool space-age looking . The billy corgan p-90's are quiet but they give you the single coil sound with the noise reduction of a hunbuckle. Combine this with reverend 's bass contour knob and the guitar gives you great sounds no matter what style you play. Very comfortable guitar to play. pin lock tuners a big plus. Great guitar great value you can not go wrong with purchasing this. Case is sold separately.
