The tune-a-matic bridge, stop tailpiece and locking tuners make it super stable and in tune no matter how agressive your playing style.
Reverend's own Railhammer "Chisel" pickups are fat, high output rock monsters with a unique layout that puts polepieces under the treble strings for a big, fat tone, and blades under the wound strings for tight bass that doesn't flub out.
Solid Korina body, Reverend's unique bass contour control that lets you tailor the guitar's low end response to perfection, a treble bleed circuit on the master volume to keep things bright and tight when you turn down and a badass silverburst finish.
Reverend Guitars are solid, well made, reasonably priced and come in a variety of styles to suit any player. Based on the highly successful Sensei platform, this RA version turns up the heat for the rock and metal player. They dropped in the revolutionary Railhammer Chisel pickups, then added an ebony fretboard and gloss finish. The result is a faster feel, tighter tone, and more aggressive attack. The Sensei RA brings together classic styling with modern features, making it the perfect weapon for today?s heavy players.
Rails under the wound strings for tight lows. Poles under the plain strings for fat highs. This revolutionary design from Reverend founder Joe Naylor delivers exceptional clarity and punch, and is setting a new standard for rock.
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.
DUAL-ACTION TRUSS ROD
A 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.
There's a graphite impregnated nut on all Reverend instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability.
