Volt Electrics is now offering its Reverse electric guitar model with Sheptone Tribute humbuckers.
Designed as a hybrid of the Telecaster and the Firebird, The Reverse, according to Volt, sports a “Tele-inspired neck joint without the Fender-ish heel, and a thin, lightweight body that’s well-balanced and adopts the aesthetic of the Bird.”
The customizable, hand-built model is offered with a choice of a mahogany, alder or swamp ash body, all with authentic vintage wing tapering.
Body binding is optional, and players can choose vintage aging at either a light or medium level.
Solid-color options are available in metallic or burst, with a nitrocellulose lacquer finish.
Other features include a Tele-style bolt-on maple neck and a compound radius, 22-fret fingerboard available in maple, rosewood, blackwood or ebony with optional block or trapezoid inlays.
There’s also a 25.2-inch scale length, 1.67-inch unbleached bone nut with intonation correction, ABM Tune-o-matic ABR-1-style bridge with machined brass saddles and Gotoh SDS510 vintage-style tuners.
The Sheptone Tributes, meanwhile, feature rough finished Alnico 5 magnets with 57-58 spec 42 enamel and come standard with 49.2 mm pole spacing. There's separate tone knobs for the neck and bridge pickups and a master volume, as well as a three-way selector switch on the horn pickguard (which also sports Volt’s own Firebird insignia).
The new Reverse is offered at a base price of approximately $3,800, with Volt hardshell case.
