Who Plays Reverend?

​This week we take a look at the artists who have worked with Reverend to design their own signature models. 

"Reeves Gabrels is the guitarist’s guitarist. Known for his experimental improvisation, Reeves playing pushes the limits of what a guitar can or should do, blending rock, blues and the avant garde into a style uniquely his. He is best known for his collaborations with David Bowie, an artist who used Gabrels’ experimental playing to great effect a half dozen albums between 1989 and 1999."

Reverend Dub King vs Mercalli 4

This week we turn up and make the walls shake when we take a look at two Reverend bass guitars.

"Hollow body guitars are something of a hybrid between an solid body electric and a 6 string acoustic. Like a solid body guitar, hollows start out with a solid block of wood for the body. However, rather than a minimal amount of cavities being routed for the electronics, on a hollow body the luthier routes more cavities in the guitar, essentially deleting as much wood as possibly without significantly compromising the structural integrity of the instrument. Once the guitar is “hollowed out” a thin veneer of wood is placed over the top of the guitar to cover the routed cavities and create little air chambers throughout the body of the instrument."

Choosing Between Bolt-Ons and Set-Necks

Do you consider what neck joint your next electric guitar will have? Should you?

"The prevailing opinion I’ve found online is that Set-Neck guitars carry vibrations better than a Bolt-On. This means that, in theory, the Set-Neck guitar should vibrate more easily and the sustain of the notes should be longer than on a comparable Bolt-On guitar. The amount of difference claimed has a lot to do with who you ask. Some players will say that there is a slight difference while others will assert that the difference is huge (I get visions of Nigel Tufnel from Spinal Tap when I hear this)."
