Based on the highly successful Sensei platform, this RA version turns up the heat for the rock and metal player. Reverend dropped in the revolutionary Railhammer Chisel pickups, then added an ebony fretboard and satin finish. The result is a faster feel, tighter tone, and more aggressive attack. The Sensei RA brings together classic styling with modern features, making it the perfect weapon for today’s heavy players.
Reverend Guitars Sensei RA Features:
Railhammer Pickups: Designed by Reverend founder Joe Naylor, Railhammersfeature 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, nothingcompares to Railhammers
Pin-Lock Tuners: A thumbwheel under the tuner pushes a steel pin upthrough the post, locking the string in place for exceptional tuning stabilityand super-fast string changes.
Dual-Action Truss Rod: The dual action rod adjusts in both directions,allowing back bow or forward bow. This assures correct adjustment range ispossible regardless of string tension, extreme climate conditions, or theeffects of long term aging. It’s also located at the headstock for easyaccess.
Korina Body: Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight wood,highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique andvintage instruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonantwood, Korina is a key factor to producing lively, responsive instruments thatare rich in harmonics.
Graphite Nut: They use a graphite impregnated nut on all Reverendinstruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slidethrough the nut slots, improving tuning stability.
Bass Contour: This passive bass roll-off is great for tightening up thelow end, or re-voicing the pickups. It can make a humbucker sound like asingle-coil, or give a P-90 that classic twang. Variable pickup voicing atyour fingertips!
