Here's my new gig guitar - Modified Reverend Jetstream HB with:
- Joe Naylor's new Railhammer "Chisel" Pickups.
- Korina Body, Flame Maple Top, routed for up-pull on the Wilkinson Trem 2 full steps on the open G string.
- Reverse headstock, Bound rosewood board, 25 1/2" maple neck, locking tuners, graphite nut.
- Weighs 7 lbs, 14oz
- Master Volume, Master Tone, and Reverend "Bass Contour Control", which removes low frequencies the same way the tone control removes high ones. Eliminates the need for coil taps, IMHO - it brings out the twang in a humbucker, and leaves both coils on so it's still quiet...

I've obviously taken a large number of Rev's home over the years, and this is my favorite...

Nice! I like how the headstock angle seems to match the bass side cutaway and the treble side lower bout. Just looks right.

The more I look at this the more I dig it. I checked around on the net for one with this config and couldn't find any. Do you guys sell this as a standard model, or is it totally a custom job?

Here's a link to the Violin Brown Jetstream HB:

http://www.reverendguitars.com/reverend/guitars/bolt_on_series/jetstream_hb.html

The pickups came from Joe Naylor's new company:

www.railhammer.com

I had a few customs necks made for me last year, this is the last one I'm afraid.

If you're interested in the guitar/pickup combonation, that can be arranged. Or.... check out the new Reeves Gabrels Sig model, one of my faves:

Sorry I wasn't clear, I was looking specifically for a reverse headstock. Not that it'd be a requirement. Classy as heck instrument and I like the wood combo. I'll look around a bit more.
