Reverend Guitars has introduced its new Six Gun HPP electric guitar – a "first of its kind" model that pairs a bridge humbucker with a pair of P-90s in an attempt to unlock a whole host of new tonal possibilities.
While Reverend has experimented with pairing the two types of pickups before, it's the first time it's brought a second P-90 to the party.
The custom-designed humbucker is said to have tons of gowl, while the propriety P-90s are designed to deliver clear, open tones. The pickups are wired to a five-way switch that allows guitarists to mix and match the three to achieve their desired sound.
A bass-contour control knob – capped by custom dome knobs which feature a low profile to avoid accidental collision while picking and/or strumming – has also been added to the circuitry in a bid to encourage guitarists to get creative with their tone.
As is customary for all Reverend guitars, the Six Gun HPP features a korina body, roasted maple neck and either a pau ferro or roasted maple fretboard, depending on what finish you opt for.
While the Chronic Blue and Coffee Burst models come equipped with a pau ferro fingerboard, the Avocado Burst and Midnight Black options feature a roasted maple one. Both boards have a 12" radius and each guitar has a 25.5" scale length.
Also returning to the fold is a familiar Bonetite nut, Pin-Lock tuners, a dual action truss rod, a Wilkinson WVS50 IIK tremolo and – as a nice personal touch – a hand-initialed serial number on the back of the headstock, added by Reverend guitar inspectors.
The new guitars are available now for £879 (approx. $1,200). Visit Reverend Guitars for more info.
The Six Gun HPP has been released alongside the new Reverend Gil Parris signature, which represented the first time a Strat-style body shape had been used for one of Reverend's guitars.
