I believe Robert has one.  Those are really cool looking guitars, no doubt it!

I don't have any Reverends at the moment, but they are all very cool guitars. Thumbs up.

Nice axe and not too expensive either. I 'd like something like that 'cause you almost get the best of both worlds.... I mean like the bridge pup being sightly hotter than a vintage PAF and the neck pup being cleaner for balanced tone and output, and to top it off, a light Korina body. I definitely wouldn't mind havin' one of those.

There is one thing to point out.  Reverend's are no longer made in the US.  The older ones, like Roberts were I believe.

Yeah, I noticed that. One would probably have to be lucky to find someone gettin' rid of one here in the states. You those scenerios where somebody has an axe  and discovers it wasn't exactly what they were lookin' for.

Although keep in mind, the Korea ones are probably BETTER than the older US-made ones... I talked to Reverend last year and they said the current ones are better than ever. Don't think US-made automatically means better quality.

That is very, very true.  I actually like a lot of the stuff coming from Korea.  I've found the Korean squires resale value is about 80-90% of the price of the guitar when it was new.  Can't say that about much of anything these days.
