Warm and lively, with the acoustic richness and overtones of a full size semi-hollow; the Reverend Manta Ray Features a highly resonant and lightweight Korina body, fast Rosewood fingerboard, and the Reverend-designed Humbuckers. This guitar is a truly versatile beast! A sleek new body design, a simple yet effective control layout, and top-notch hardware yields a faster feel, tighter tone, and more aggressive attack. Excellent sustain and attack are coupled with substantial resonance, for a complex and responsive tone.
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.
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!
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.
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.
