Reverend Sensei RA - Purple Burst
Based on Reverend's highly successful Sensei platform, the Sensei RA turns up the heat for the rock and metal player. Reverend dropped in the revolutionary Railhammer Chisel pickups, then added an ebony fretboard and gloss 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. The Reverend Sensei RA is also available in Gloss Wine Red Flame Maple, Gloss Coffee Burst Flame Maple, Midnight Black and Silver Burst finish.
Reverend Sensei RA - Purple Burst
CHISEL BRIDGE PICKUP
Aggressive and thick, but with superb clarity, the Chisel sets a new standard for heavy rock and metal. Unlike the competition, you can dial in a tight clear tone on the wound strings without the plain strings sounding thin or sterile. And the Chisel has loads of character... rich in harmonics, touch sensitive and armed with an upper-mid attack that cuts like a knife. If you want your riffs to be heard loud and clear, this is your tool. And like all Railhammers, the extra clarity on the wound strings means they also work great with low tuned guitars.
CHISEL NECK PICKUP
Finally, a neck humbucker that doesn't turn to mush when you dig in hard, even with chords. Aggressive and thick, but with superb clarity, the Chisel sets a new standard for heavy rock and metal. Unlike the competition, you can dial in a tight clear tone on the wound strings without the plain strings sounding thin or sterile. And the Chisel has loads of character... rich in harmonics, touch sensitive and armed with an upper-mid attack that cuts like a knife. If you want your riffs to be heard loud and clear, this is your tool. And like all Railhammers, the extra clarity on the wound strings means they also work great with low tuned guitars.
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 our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.
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!
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.
Every Reverend is hand initialed on the back of the headstock by Zack Green, Reverend's highly skilled technician who sets up, inspects and tests every instrument.
CUSTOM DOME KNOBS
Reverend's proprietary knobs feature a lower profile which is less likely to be accidentally hit by the players hand and the white dot lets you easily see where your knob rotation is set.
Reverend uses "Boneite", a synthetic bone nut that is more consistent than natural bone, on all of their instruments. Boneite reduces friction, allowing the strings to slide through the nut slots smoothly, improving tuning stability.
DUAL-ACTION TRUSS ROD
Reverend's 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 acess.
CUSTOM JACK PLATE
Reverend's proprietary jack plate features four mounting screws instead of two. The extra screws prevent the plate from tearing out of the body. Made of steel for durability, the laser etched logo adds an extra touch of class.
PURE TONE JACK
All Reverends use an upgraded jack by Pure Tone Technologies. A standard jack has single contacts, but the Pure Tone jack has dual contacts for improved grip, audio signal and reliability. The most dependable guitar jack available.
TREBLE BLEED CIRCUIT
All Reverend guitars have a treble bleed circuit, preserving the treble when you roll back the volume control. When you roll back a standard volume control, the tone loses treble and becomes dull sounding. Now you can turn down and still sound great.
Reverend uses Alpha control pots with a +-10% rating. While a typical pot is +-20%, Reverend's pots are built to tighter specifications, making them more consistent. Typically used in expensive boutique guitars, but standard issue in all Reverends.
10% POLY CAPS
Reverend uses caps with a +-10% rating, while a typical cap is +-20%. Reverend's caps are made to tighter specifications, so they're more consistent. Made of polyester, they're also longer lasting and less affected by temperature than cheaper ceramic caps. Typically used in expensive boutique guitars.
