These new guitars all sport set-neck construction with korina bodies and necks, pau ferro fingerboards, Boneite nuts, locking tuners, dual-action truss rods, Tune-o-matic bridge systems and Reverend’s Bass Contour control, the last of which functions as passive low-pass filter that can tighten up the lower frequencies and slightly revoice pickups.
The new Roundhouse and Contender series (pictured above) are offset singlecut guitars that come in a twin-pickup format. The Roundhouse comes loaded with a pair of Reverend HA5 humbuckers while the Contender has the option of either humbuckers, P-90s or Reverend’s new Retroblast mini-humbuckers.
The Warhawk has been updated with a sleeker body and three 9A5 pickups that are touted as being “hotter and thicker at the bridge, yet cleaner and more open at the middle and neck than vintage P-90s”. This offset guitar is also available as the Warhawk DA variant, featuring Reverend’s Double Agent pickup layout of a 9A5 P-90 in the neck and an HA5 humbucker in the bridge. The Warhawk DAW maintains this pickup layout but exchanges the tune-o-matic bridge system for a Wilkinson tremolo.
