Reverend Buckshot Chronic Blue with Roasted Maple neck

The specification of this guitar is impressive. In fact, it would be impressive on an instrument at twice the price. The Reverend Buckshot Chronic Blue has a Korina body. This is a feature normally found on boutique guitars. This has been paired up with a Roasted Maple neck and fretboard. 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. This is the smoothest, silkiest neck you will ever feel. Trust us, these are the best necks this side of £3000! 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.

The neck has an medium oval profile. It is solid, substantial and very comfortable. Things are kept nice and stable with locking tuners and Boneite nut. These are excellent quality. Down the other end of the neck is a Tuneomatic Bridge with a Stoptail. This delivers sustain and tuning stability.

Greasy T and Revtron Pickups.

Another impressive feature of the Reverend Buckshot is the pickups and their controls. A Greasy T single coil bridge pickup is matched up with a Revtron humbucker. It delivers great versatility. You get Tele style tones at the bridge with a bit more beef. The Revtron in the neck position adds power yet is still clear and bright. There is a three way switch. Control wise you get a master tone and volume. The secret weapon in its arsenal is the bass contour roll off. This lets you roll of a certain frequency of bass. It works almost like a coil tap but with more versatility.
