NAMM 2020: Reverend Guitars has unveiled three new electric guitar models as part of its 2020 lineup – the carved-top Roundhouse, a revamped version of its Warhawk and the retro-minded Contender flattop.

All three models sport korina bodies, Boneite nuts and locking tuners, Reverend’s Bass Contour Control and a dual-action truss rod.

The set-neck Roundhouse adds in a flame maple top, pau ferro fretboard, HA5 humbuckers and a tune-o-matic stop-tail bridge, and comes in Violin Brown, Transparent Black and Transparent Turquoise finishes.

The Warhawk, which has been reimagined with a sleeker body and thinner wings, comes loaded with three 9A5 pickups, which Reverend describes as “hotter and thicker at the bridge, yet cleaner and more open at the middle and neck than vintage P-90s”.

The Warhawk DA version offers Reverend’s celebrated Double Agent layout – a humbucker at the bridge and a P-90 pickup at the neck, while the DAW model adds in a Wilkinson tremolo.

Finally, Reverend’s single-cut, set-neck Contender offers a combination of vintage and modern design with an offset body and six-in-line headstock.

The model is available with a choice of humbuckers, P-90s or the company’s new Retroblast mini-humbuckers.
