NAMM 2008 - Reverend Introduces Ron Asheton Signature Guitar At NAMM
Proto-punk guitar legend Ron Asheton (Iggy Pop & The Stooges) has collaborated with Reverend on a new signature model to debut at January NAMM. Based on the popular Volcano model, this guitar includes three Reverend P-90 pickups, lightning bolt body logo, and Ron's signature on the back of the headstock.
The korina body construction features a raised center section which improves clarity and sustain, while the thinner wings increase resonance for an instrument that is lively, clear and rich in harmonics.
The custom designed pickups consist of a bridge pickup that is slightly hotter than vintage, and middle/neck pickups that are slightly cleaner. The passive Bass Contour adds versatility, ranging from a slight low-end roll off to percussive single-coil sounds.
