Rick Vito aimed to capture the enchanting tonal qualities of the early Reverend Guitars while incorporating modern elements into his latest model. The result is the Rick Vito Signature Soul Agent, a contemporary rendition of the Double Agent featuring a Bigsby tremolo system and the distinctive Rick Vito treatment. Drawing inspiration from the earliest Reverend designs, the guitar boasts a heavily chambered body, which enhances its resonance and produces a vibrant, rich tone with pronounced harmonics and delightful overtones. By utilizing the push-pull "twang" setting, the pickups can be reconfigured to deliver a tighter, more percussive sound. Additionally, when combined with the push-pull "phase" feature, a total of eight unique tones can be achieved. The inclusion of the Bigsby tremolo system further expands the range of sonic possibilities. The guitar's aesthetic pays homage to the classic Rick Vito style, featuring checkerboard binding and custom graphics on the bridge pickup.

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.
The strategically placed chambers increase body resonance for a more lively and responsive tone, and reduces weight.
