Reverend Guitars Greg Koch Signature Gristlemaster, Blucifer
Based on a classic T-style body, Reverend made it a bit larger, added a raised center ridge, and placed a chamber under the pickguard - all for tons of sustain and resonance. The Gristlemaster is equipped with Fishman Greg Koch Signature Gristle-Tone pickups – hum-free, rechargeable active pickups with two distinct voicings. A roasted maple compound radius neck contributes to the playability, while the Wilkinson Classic 3-Saddle bridge with staggered brass saddles and steel baseplate keeps the tone vintage-inspired.
Fishman Greg Koch Gristle-Tone Signature pickups are hum-free, boast extra clarity and treble shimmer, and a push button boost on the control plate kicks in the midrange gristle. Conveniently recharges with USB port at the input jack
The genuine Wilkinson Staggered Brass Saddle bridge features uniquely shaped compensated brass saddles for perfect intonation and extra sustain, and a heavy duty steel bridge plate for serious twang.
ROASTED MAPLE NECK
Roasted Maple is heat treated at over 300° F to remove sugars, moisture, and impurities. This maple is lighter, more stable, and has a beautiful caramel color. The result is an exceptional maple neck that will require less seasonal adjustment, and boasts a rich vintage look!
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.
The strategically placed chamber underneath the pickguard reduces weight, and turns up the body resonance for a more lively and responsive tone.
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.
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.
We took the traditional barrel knob and added a white dot, which lets you easily see where your knob rotation is set. Simple, but effective.
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.
TRIPLE-TREE STRING TREE
This patent-pending string tree has an extended bar to hold down three strings at a time with just one tree, eliminating G string buzz in the nut slot.
SIX-BOLT NECK PLATE
Two extra bolts increase mounting pressure of the neck by fifty percent. This makes a stronger neck connection, which improves sustain, tuning stability, and neck alignment.
ANGLED NECK HEEL
All Reverend solid body guitars in the Bolt-On series feature a low profile, angled neck heel. This improves comfort and hand access when you’re reaching for those high notes!
