Reverend collaborated with proto-punk guitar legend Ron Asheton (1948-2009) to bring you this unique guitar. Based on the popular Volcano model, this guitar melds three Reverend CP90 pickups with a korina body for a raw, yet fat tone with a percussive attack. The perfect guitar for edgy rock tones, but also versatile enough for just about any situation. Unique features include: lightning bolt body logo, and Ron’s signature silkscreened on the back of the headstock.
Reverend Guitars Ron Asheton Features:
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.
Custom Pickups: Reverend designs their own proprietary custom pickups in order to achieve the best tonal match with their instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.
Dual-Action Truss Rod: The dual action rod adjusts in both directions, allowing back bow or forward bow. This assurescorrect 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-light weight 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 lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.
Graphite Nut: They 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!
