Based on the template of the The Cure guitarist's incumbent Dirtbike signature, the Royale iteration swaps out the once-favored single Railhammer Reeves Gabrels signature humbucker for a pair of Mojotones.
A Mojotone Hot Quiet Coil P-90 soapbar bridge lines up alongside a Mojotone ‘56 Quiet Coil P-90 soapbar neck – a hum-canceling, passive configuration that aims to provide a powerful loaded front-end and warm, vintage P-90 sounds.
The Dirtbike Royale also features Reverend’s tried and trusted control layout, made up of master Volume and Tone knobs, as well as a Bass Contour parameter.
Other than that, there’s nothing too drastic about the former David Bowie guitarist’s latest signature, which features a standard korina body, boneite nut, locking tuners and dual-action truss rod.
A three-piece medium oval-profile korina neck, paired with a 12"-radius, 22-fret ebony fingerboard, also makes the cut.
Further appointments include an adjustable wraparound Wilkinson GTB bridge system – which has been utilized in favor of the original Dirtbike’s Wilkinson WVS50 IIK tremolo – Royale Red colorway and ebony fretboard.
