Pete Anderson's Electric Hollowbody Combo of Country and RockThe Reverend PA1 Pete Anderson signature electric guitar forges an unadulterated fusion of country and roots-rock -- with the approval of the renowned guitarist and producer himself. This hollowbody beauty boasts a laminated maple top, back, and sides; a three-piece korina neck in a comfortable medium oval profile; CP90 pickups in the neck and bridge positions; volume, tone, and bass contour controls to shape your sonic signature; and a smooth rosewood fingerboard with 22 medium jumbo frets. You'll love the warm resonance and lingering sustain this hollowbody axe produces as soon as you fire it through your amp for its first spin!
Bright and Warm Maple Body with Reverend Uni-BraceYou'll love the look and feel of the Reverend PA1's laminated maple top, back, and sides. Maple brings a pleasant rounded brightness to your playing, helping each string cut through the mix without ever getting too harsh or stark. This hollowbody electric guitar utilizes a korina uni-brace setup that connects the top and the back, effectively reducing feedback, increasing long-term structural integrity, adding a nice helping of sustain and transfer of sound, and resonating that awesome hollowbody tone throughout your performance -- just as Pete Anderson would have it.
Comfy Three-Piece Korina NeckExtending over 22 medium jumbo frets with tight and addicting action is this Pete Anderson signature axe's three-piece korina neck. Tonally, korina is a warm and well-balanced wood. The species name of the tonewood is limba, which is related to mahogany. Run your fingers up and down this melodious appendage and you'll hear the clarity and sustain. The rosewood fingerboard plays like butter, so once you get your hand going, it won't want to stop.
CP90 Bridge and Neck PickupsThe PA1's CP90 bridge and neck pickups are custom-designed by Reverend, so each note and chord you play will stand out in the crowd when compared to other guitars with mass-produced pickups. Your pair of CP90s utilizes ceramic magnets, and tend to be slightly brighter than that vintage P90-style tone. Take advantage of the PA1's tone and bass contour controls to craft your sound to your own personal tastes.
Volume, Tone, and Bass Contour ControlsThe Reverend PA1's volume, tone, and bass contour controls give you plenty of room to shape your output. Use the tone knob to brighten up or darken your sound, and don't neglect your three-way pickup selector switch. The bass contour control accts as a passive bass roll-off, which is a great tool for tightening up the low end and re-voicing your pickups. You can use this control to get a cool and biting twang, if you're looking to get a little extra country with your tone.

Reverend PA1 Pete Anderson SignatureReverend has teamed up with country/roots-rock guitar legend and Grammy winning artist/producer Pete Anderson to design this customized PA1 hollowbody electric guitar. Pete wanted a classic hollow sound and look, but with the ability to play at higher volumes without uncontrollable feedback. So Reverend developed the innovative Uni-Brace, that not only addresses feedback, but also enhances sustain, durability, and clarity.
Unique features include: bushing mounted bridge, "R" embossed knobs, back sprayed/logoed pickguard, and 15th fret neck/body joint for better high fret access.
Custom PickupsReverend designs their own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with their instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.
Bass ContourThis passive bass roll-off is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. It can make a humbucker sound like a single-coil, or give a P-90 that classic twang. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!
Pin-Lock TunersA thumbwheel under the tuner pushes a steel pin up through the post, locking the string in place for exceptional tuning stability and super-fast string changes. Also, the posts are custom height, eliminating the need for a second string tree.
Graphite NutReverend uses a graphite impregnated nut on all Reverend instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability.
Dual-Action Truss RodReverend's dual action rod adjusts in both directions, allowing back bow or forward bow. This assures correct adjustment range is possible regardless of string tension, extreme climate conditions, or the effects of long term aging. It's also located at the headstock for easy access.
Uni-BraceThis korina brace is full body depth, connecting the top and back. It reduces uncontrollable feedback, improves sustain and clarity, while maintaining full hollow body tone. It also increases long term structural integrity by preventing the neck block from rotating forward from string tension.
