Overview

A modern yet retro electric guitar with 9A5 pickups for fat, raw and bluesy tones.

Meet the Reverend Contender 290—Reverend Guitars’ flat-top, single-cut set-neck guitar. This Reverend electric guitar is classically retro, but the offset body and six-in-line headstock give the guitar a modern feel. A strategic chamber under the pickguard increases resonance and reduces weight. The Reverend Contender 290 has a pair of 9A5 pickups for fat, raw and bluesy tones with enough bite to cut through the mix. This Reverend Contender electric guitar effortlessly combines vintage with cutting-edge—a hallmark of Reverend’s original designs.
