Reverend Jetstream HB Violin Brown Flame Maple, real workhorse guitar with style!

The Reverend Jetstream HB Violin Brown Flame Maple looks amazing. The Violin Brown finish over the flame Maple top just screams cool! It's 25.5" scale length provides great clarity to this twin humbucker equipped electric guitar. Reverend use their own alnico 5 magnet HA5 humbuckers in the Jetstream HB. The bridge pickup is recognisably a classic humbucker, but wound slightly hotter for extra drive and punch. The neck pickup offers warm but open tone with slightly relaxed mids. Both have excellent clarity. The bass contour control really transforms the sound of the Reverend Jetstream HB. Rolled right back it re-voices the pickups to sound like single coils. So with the Jetstream HB you get a trem equipped twin humbucker guitar with more than meets the eye.

Reverend Jetstream HB now with Roasted Maple neck & Blackwood fingerboard

The super cool contoured offset body of the Reverend Jetstream HB is made from solid Korina. This wood offers many of the same properties as Mahogany but with more consistency and lighter weight. Solid Korina resonates well and makes for a real lively and responsive instrument. The new Roasted Maple neck 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 Jetstream HB has a new Blackwood Tek fingerboard which is Reverend's replacement for Rosewood. This upgraded fingerboard material is made from a 100% sustainable softwood that is impregnated with an organic resin, then subjected to extreme heat and pressure. The result is a 100% natural wood product that exhibits the feel, look and sound of Rosewood, but is more stable thanks to a low moisture content and better for the environment! It's very smooth which feels great to play on.


Upgraded hardware

Throughout 2017 and in to 2018 Reverend have continually upgraded the entire line of instruments. These changes include a new Boneite nut, which reduces friction and has a resonant response similar to that of bone. A new 3 abreast string tree, Etched Reverend logo on the 6 bolt neck plate, new improved contact jack socket and etched jack plate, upgraded pots and electronics, and new lower profile controls. The bridge on the Reverend Jetstream HB is a Wilkinson WVS50 IIK tremolo. This trem offers superb tuning stability especially when combined with the Reverend locking tuners and Boneite nut. You can really go wild with the trem and know that your next chord will still be in tune! The trem now features another new Joe Naylor invention, the Vari-Claw. The Vari-Claw allows you to easily switch between 3 springs in the middle hooks of the claw for a firm feel, or 2 springs on the outside recessed hooks of the claw for a soft feel, with little or no adjustment to the claw itself.

The Reverend Jetstream HB in Violin Brown Flame Maple with Roasted Maple neck is a real favourite with us in our Glasgow shop. No wonder these guitars get such consistently great reviews. You're getting boutique quality without the price tag!
