Larger than life tone and style, not larger than life problems.

The Reverend Airwave 12 String Electric Guitar has some interesting features that make it playable and easy to tune. The bridge is fully intonateable for all 12 strings – independently – chords are always in tune and sound sweeter than you’d expect. Locking tuners keep it tuning tight. The wide nut provides spacing for the extra strings, and the shorter 24-3/4” scale length provides lower string tension. Easier chording means it’s easier to get that shimmer. Case sold separately.

Custom pickups
We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.

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.

Fully adjustable bridge
Chords stay in tune and sound sweeter because this bridge allows independent intonation for each of the 12 strings.

Bass contour
This passive bass roll-off is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. It can make a humbucker sound like a single-coil, or give a P-90 that classic twang. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!

1-3/4" wide graphite nut
We use a graphite impregnated nut on all Reverend instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability. The wide nut provides proper spacing for the extra strings, making it easier to play.

Five-piece korina and walnut neck
Multiple layers make the neck extra stong, and able to withstand the pressure of twelve stripngs, yet the Korina means the neck is lightweight.

The Mystery Guitar Strings Mystery...

Comments about Reverend Airwave 12 String Electric Guitar:

Why don't they tell you what kind of/gauge of strings to put on it? That is really my only criticism. The guitar arrived overnight and with a broken G string. It kind of looked like a 17, so I tried that but discovered that tuning a 17 up an octave... You know it's not going to do it - and it didn't. So I went to a 13 and that has held. I think I would try a 10 if this one breaks. I'm guessing the set is a 10-46, but only because that is the gauge Rickenbacker sells. I ordered a set. Moving on...

So you spend this kind of money and you're not getting a guitar with any classic rock legacy. This one was not played by any of my heroes or on any record I listen to. That makes it hard to judge value as someone who grew up in the 60s and my friends and I had some famous guitars. I never had a 12 string, but I played one recently in Seattle and loved it (a Fender Strat 12). But this Reverend is a lot more playable. The Fender (I loved it!) but it was very hard to finger notes and pick notes. I figured that was something you could learn to do, but the slightly wider Airwave is better in that regard. It's not much wider, but enough to make a difference. It has good action and is a little bit like an acoustic-electric in that you feel the resonance. The guitar is well balanced. There is no neck dive with a strap (I'm using a 4 inch wide strap), tho the gtr is very lite. It could be renamed Airweight. It also plays in tune really well. You can just tune the open strings (thin pick) and chords sound correct, which makes me think I need to setup my other guitars a lot better. QUIET pickups, no hum. No pickguard static.

The decision of whether to keep the guitar or not was made when I turned it over and saw a hand-lettered serial number and initials on the back of the headstock. That clinched it for me, since it means someone probably checked the guitar out and maybe even set it up, but that's not clear. I also think the YouTube demos are very unflattering to the guitar.
