Description

We’ve paired the PA1 body shape with Retroblast pickups! The PA1’s classically vintage shape — paired with the Uni-Brace system to keep the uncontrollable feedback at a minimum — is the perfect complement to the Retroblast pickups. Both the guitar and the pickups are vintage inspired, but both have subtle modern tweaks that make the PA1 RB eminently playable.

Features

Custom Pickups

We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.

Uni-Brace

This korina brace is full body depth, connecting the top and back. It reduces uncontrollable feedback, improves sustain and clarity, while maintaining full hollow body tone. It also increases long term structural integrity by preventing the neck block from rotating forward from string tension.

Bass Contour / Reverend Embossed Knobs

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!

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.

Initialed Headstock

Every Reverend is hand initialed and serial numbered on the back of the headstock by one of our highly skilled technicians who sets up, inspects, and tests every instrument.

Bigsby With Soft Touch Spring & Roller Bridge

Our Bigsby tremolo system feels great and stays in tune all night long! We install a custom Soft Touch spring into all our Bigsbys for easy, smooth action. Our roller bridge works with our Pin-Lock tuners and Boneite nut to create a system that strings glide through every time.

Boneite Nut

We use "Boneite," a synthetic bone nut, that is more consistent than natural bone, on all Reverend instruments. It reduces friction, allowing the strings to slide through the nut slots smoothly, improving tuning stability.

Dual-Action Truss Rod

Our 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.

Custom Jack Plate

Our 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!

10% Pots

We use Alpha control pots with a +-10% rating. While a typical pot is +-20%, our 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

We use caps with a +-10% rating, while a typical cap is +-20%. Our 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.
