OVERVIEW

Designed in collaboration with Bob Balch, riffmeister with stoner rock/fuzz metal progenitors Fu Manchu.

The understated elegance belies the hot rod nature of this rock machine, which is based on Reverand's acclaimed Sensei platform. Unique features include: beveled body edges, satin finish, and a strategic tone chamber under the pickguard for increased resonance. Railhammer Bob Balch Signature pickups complete the package, featuring ceramic magnets and brass covers/baseplates for a thick tone with enhanced midrange clarity that can handle everything from fuzz riffs to jazz comping.

Railhammer pickups
Designed by Reverend founder Joe Naylor, Railhammers feature a unique rail/pole design that keeps the lows tight and the highs fat. They sound great clean, but for heavy distortion or low tunings, nothing compares to Railhammers.

Dual-action truss rod
This dual-action rod adjusts in both directions, allowing back bow or forward bow. This assures correct adjustment range is possible regardless of string tension, extreme climate conditions, or the effects of long-term aging. It's also located at the headstock for easy access.

Korina body
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-lightweight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.

Graphite nut
Reverend 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.

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.

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.
