Since 1997, Reverend has produced intriguing interpretations of classic vintage American guitar designs. Their models use time-tested pickups in unique configurations—often with advanced control functions influenced by popular guitar mods—to give you versatile, but classic, tone. With eye-catching finishes and aesthetics suited for the stage, a Reverend guitar will get it done in style!
This 2008 Reverend Flatroc features a Korina body and two "Revtron" pickups. It captures a versatile array of tones that allow you to cover a lot of territory—rockabilly, twangy blues, smooth rock n roll... the Flatroc can take you there! A big reason why is the flexible tone control and added "Bass Contour" knob which allows you to roll off bass frequencies. Although the Revtron pickups are full-sounding humbuckers wide open, when you roll back on the Bass Contour they begin to sound more and more like single-coils. When you roll all the way off, the middle position sounds like an out-of-phase Strat. All-in-all, it adds a lot to the guitar's versatility.
True to Reverend guitars, all of the hardware and fittings are high quality. Although these guitars are made in Korea, they're built properly with the right parts. In general, this Flatroc is like a great value for the money, especially considering its wide range of tones. This one sports Reverend's "Rock Orange" finish, which is slightly translucent so you can see some Korina grain. With a popping finish and the black pickguard/matching black peghead overlay (plus chrome knobs!), this guitar is sure to get noticed on any stage.
This 2008 Reverend Flatroc is in excellent condition. While it does show minor signs of playwear, it is fairly clean cosmetically (see photos). It is set up with fast, low action, and it includes a deluxe TKL gig bag.
