Fat, raw and bluesy but with just the right amount of bite to cut through. Positions 2 and 4 on the pickup selector deliver classic â€śquackâ€ť but with a thicker tonality. An amazing guitar for both clean and distorted tones with enough twang for surf, but thick enough for rock.
Reverend Guitars Jetstream 390 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. Also, the posts are custom height, eliminating the need for a second string tree.
Custom Pickups: Reverend designs their own proprietary custom pickups, 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.
Wilkinson WVS50 IIK Tremolo: Features include saddles that lock to the base plate, adjustable arm swing tension, and a push-in/no freeplay arm. Combined with a graphite nut and pin-lock tuners, it stays in tune even under aggressive whammy action.
Korina Body (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: 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.
