Special Order Item

Reverend Guitars' Bob Balch Signature electric guitar was designed in collaboration with Bob Balch, riffmeister with stoner rock/fuzz metal progenitors Fu Manchu. The understated elegance belies the hot rod nature of this rock machine, which is based on Reverend's acclaimed Sensei platform. Unique features of this guitar include beveled body edges, satin finish, and a strategic tone chamber under the pickguard for increased resonance. Railhammer Bob Balch Signature pickups complete the package, featuring ceramic magnets and brass covers/baseplates for a thick tone with enhanced midrange clarity that can handle everything from fuzz riffs to jazz comping.

Reverend Guitars Bob Balch Signature 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.
  • Railhammer Pickups:  Designed by Reverend founder Joe Naylor, Railhammers feature a unique rail/pole design that keeps the lows tight and the highs fat.
  • Dual-Action Truss Rod:  The dual-action rod adjusts in both directions, allowing back bow or forward bow. This assures correct 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:  Reverend uses a graphite impregnated nut on all their 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!
