What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
Korina body Very warm, lively, and balanced tonewood
Maple neck and fretboard Bright, even tone with long sustain
Railhammer pickups Exceptional clarity and punch; balanced output
Bass contour control Tightens up the low end; can re-voice pickups

The Reverend Billy Corgan Signature BC-1 has a raised center ridge and strategic chambers under the pickguard to add resonance and reduce weight. The string-thru body bridge provides maximum sustain and a percussive attack. The BC-1 is loaded with Railhammer Billy Corgan Signature Pickups, part of Railhammers new Humcutter series. The body is topped with a segmented aluminum pickguard for a modern, yet timeless look.


Part of Railhammers new Humcutter Series developed with Billy Corgan to capture the clarity and dynamics of a P90, but with the thick tone of a low-noise humbucker.


Strategic chambers under the pickguard add resonance and reduce weight.


The classic low profile shape, but rendered in metal with a chrome finish.


For maximum sustain and a percussive attack.


This passive bass roll-off is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!


A 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.


Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, read more all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.


We use a graphite impregnated nut on all Reverend instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability.

I bought this guitar over a year ago and it is still one of my top guitars I've ever owned. It's nice and lightweight, with a nice variety of tonal options due to the bass contour knob. Billy's signature rail hammers are so nice and I can dial in a nice heavy Pumpkin's tone of old, as well as modern rock, great cleans, this thing seems to do everything. It's really brought out a whole new creative element to my playing. Being mainly a Fender player for years this guitar has got me wanting to add more Reverends to my collection! Seriously, the quality of this instrument is well worth the money and then some.
