The Reverend Buckshot electric guitar has been significantly upgraded for 2020. The stunning Chronic Blue finish is now complemented by a Pau Ferro fretboard, while Reverend’s brand new Retroblast pickup has been fitted in the neck position. This outstanding new mini humbucker replaces the old Revtron, and is accompanied by a Greasy T single-coil in the bridge position. This guitar benefits from Reverend’s outstanding hardware and components, plus that beautiful Roasted Maple neck, for a truly compelling package.

Here at Merchant City Music we’re proud to be a specialist Reverend dealer, stocking what is probably the biggest selection of Reverend guitars on the planet, right here in our Glasgow store! Every one is treated to the same rigorous check over and professional set up before it goes out the door. We ship fast to our customers in the UK, Europe and Worldwide.

Reverend Buckshot in Chronic Blue with Roasted Maple neck

As with other solid body guitars in Reverend’s line up, the Buckshot body is carved from Korina - an acoustically resonant, yet lightweight tone wood.The 25.5” scale set neck is constructed from Roasted Maple. This is a real stand out feature. Roasted Maple is normally found on custom shop and high-end boutique guitars. Reverend have brought this material to a price bracket never seen before. The Roasted Maple that Reverend have used has been kiln dried to remove most of the moisture. This results in a neck that is resistant to temperature and humidity. The advantages also include stability, increased resonance and lighter weight. The process also gives the Maple a beautiful caramel colour and makes the grain of the wood really pop.

Greasy T and Retroblast Pickups, Bass Contour Control, Plus Top Shelf Components

Another impressive feature of the Reverend Buckshot is the pickups and their controls. A Greasy T single coil bridge pickup is fitted in the bridge position, giving you Tele-style tones with a bit more beef. This is matched with Reverend’s brand new Retroblast mini humbucker in the neck position. Designed to mitigate against the worst features of mini-humbuckers, this pickup nevertheless maintains the characteristics which have endeared its ilk to guitarists over the years. Neither under-powered or harsh - the Retroblast gives you the midrange punch, chimey highs, and string-to-string definition for which mini-humbuckers are revered.

In addition to a three-way switch, master volume and tone, you also get Reverend’s secret weapon: the Bass Contour control. This passive bass roll-off is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. You can dial in a much greater level of twang - it can make a humbucker sound more like a single coil. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!

In terms of components, Reverend uses top shelf hardware and electronics. The Pure Tone jack socket features dual contacts for much improved reliability compared to standard sockets, which only have a single contact. A treble bleed circuit is used for the volume control, preserving the trebles when you roll back the volume. Reverend also uses 10% Alpha control pots and 10% polyester capacitors. The tighter tolerances (most pots and caps only have a 20% rating), result in much improved consistency and reliability. Reverend’s outstanding locking machine heads are a joy to use and virtually eliminate string slippage, as well as making string changes a cinch.

This latest upgrade to the already-outstanding Reverend Buckshot marks it out as one of the must-try guitars this year!
