Reverend Reeves Gabrels Signature RGX Anniversary Model with Roasted Maple Neck

As with the amazing standard Reverend Reeves Gabrels Signature guitar, this RGX 10th Anniversary model is fitted with a beautiful roasted Maple neck. It also benefits from all the evolutions applied to the standard model, resulting in a peerless overall package and a level of deep quality which rewards the most discerning guitarist. The bound roasted Maple neck has a bound tilt back headstock, while the guitar is loaded with Reeves Gabrels signature Railhammer Pickups instead of the previous Chisel set. Needles to say it sounds incredible and plays beautifully!

The build quality of this guitar is pretty spectacular. For this price it is outstanding! The Reverend Reeves Gabrels RGX in Transparent Black Flame Maple is one of the Cure guitarist's signature models. He is also famed for working with David Bowie and more. Utilising Korina for the body, this guitar has a nice weight and plenty of resonance. Bolted onto this is an ultra playable Roasted Maple neck, a feature which Reverend has pioneered, influencing the whole guitar industry. Heretofore found primarily on custom shop and high-end boutique guitars, Reverend have brought Roasted Maple 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 Reeves Gabrels Signature has a Pau Ferro fretboard with a twelve inch radius. The headstock is painted gloss black on the front and is now bound and pitched back to negate the need for a string tree. Reverend have created a very comfortable body and neck with the Reeves Gabrels guitar.

RAILHAMMER RG SIGNATURE PICKUPS AND A PUSH/PULL PHASE SWITCH

This guitar comes with some pretty amazing hardware. The most standout of which are the Railhammer pickups. New signature RG Neck and Bridge. They offer a tight bottom end and a fat high end which drives hard and cuts through the mix like a knife, even with heavy overdrive. The Reeves Reeves Gabrels Midnight Black also comes with a push/pull phase switch. This greatly boosts the versatility of this instrument. A WVS50 II Wilkinson Trem is solid and stable. One of the best non locking tremolo bridges we have every come across at Merchant City Music. 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 Pinlock tuners help to keep it stable. There is also a cavity behind the trem to allow backward motion too.
