Reverend Charger 290 Limited Edition Solidbody Electric Guitar with Bigsby - Black Sparkle with Maple Fretboard - Plek'd

The Reverend Charger 290 is bluesy, raw, and fat. It's made to hold up to the rigors of the road and a lifetime of live performances. Build from a choice slab of Korina with a gorgeous roasted Maple neck and rosewood fretboard. This comes equipped with Reverend's proprietary 9A5 single-coil pickups that have just the right amount of bite to cut through any mix, no matter what genre it is. The 9A5 neck is cleaner than a vintage P-90, and the bridge is wound hotter and thicker. A bass contour control tightens up the low end or revoices the pickups for more twang. Don't be concerned about losing treble at lower volumes; a treble-bleed circuit maintains it no matter how quiet it gets.

Plek'd at Palen

Palen Music Center is proud to announce that this instrument has been Plek'd at no additional cost to you! This state-of-the-art machine uses cutting edge tech to analyze the instrument and provide our expert luthiers with the information and tools to provide the best setup imaginable. Please feel free to consult our knowledgable sales staff for further details on this amazing service.

Custom Pickups

We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.

Roasted Maple Neck

Roasted Maple is heat treated at over 300° F to remove sugars, moisture, and impurities. This maple is lighter, more stable, and has a beautiful caramel color. The result is an exceptional maple neck that will require less seasonal adjustment, and boasts a rich vintage look!

Korina Body

Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, 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.

Bass Contour

This 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!
