Reverend Guitars are solid, well made, reasonably priced and come in a variety of styles to suit any player. Larger than life tone and style, not larger than life problems, the Airwave 12 plays like a dream. The bridge is fully intonateable for all 12 strings – independently – chords are always in tune and sound sweeter than you’d expect. The wide nut provides spacing for the extra strings, and the shorter 24-3/4” scale length provides lower string tension. Easier chording means it’s easier to get that shimmer.
Reverend design thier own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with these instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching
CP90 BRIDGE Slightly hotter than a vintage P90. Raw, classic tone with slightly less hum than most other P90’s. 42 gauge wire, ceramic magnets, 8K ohms.
CP90 Neck Slightly cleaner than a vintage P90. Clear, open tone with slightly less hum than most other P90’s. Middle pickup is RWRP for hum-cancelling when used with bridge or neck pickups. 42 gauge wire, ceramic magnets, 6.5K ohms.
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 these 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.
FULLY INTONATEABLE BRIDGE
Chords stay in tune and sound sweeter because this bridge allows independent intonation for each of the 12 strings.
1-3/4" WIDE GRAPHITE NUT
We use a graphite impregnated nut on all Reverend instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability. The wide nut provides proper spacing for the extra strings, making it easier to play.
