Tell ya what, though- if I could afford a translator, I'd be talking to this company about what they did with the Ravelle shape:

I love picking up guitars I think are ugly and trying them. Sometimes they can sound really great.

HNGD! Sweet looking axe. I didn't think your we're allowed buying non Reverend guitars? Love the gold top.

I can be vocal about what I like, I know!

Fernandes is now one of the 4 brands from which I have multiple guitars...and the only one of those in which I have only one model.

But don't fret ( ), I have a few more Revs in my crosshairs!

Funny thing: the guy I bought this Ravelle from included a CD of his music. I haven't had a chance to listen to it, but guess what?

The inside sleeve art shows him playing a Rev. (I think its a Reeves Gabrels sig 2.)

I figured this much. I thought I had a couple guitars in the works then I fell in like with a sienna burst fender strat. What's worse is I'm not even a strat guy. Hopefully a rev will pop up and catch my eye.

Congrats!

I wish the Elite necks were a bit beefier though.

Would you say Reverend necks are beefier than, say, Epiphone SG necks? I don't know what the neck on my Epi is, exactly, but it's pretty beefy and definitely not one of the "slim" Epiphone neck profiles.

I ask because my only definite requirements for my next guitar are:

1) TOM bridge or Bigsby
2) No baseball bat necks

:P

Rev necks are not slim in any way, but they also aren't baseball bats. They are- AFAIK- all medium ovals (C). I would say they're beefier than anything a guitar maker would call "slim". That would include those Epi SGs.

Compared to my other guitars, I do have fatter necked axes (some of my JKGs, for sure) and skinner ones (the Caddy and the Ravelles). So if you're looking for a middle of the pack size, Revs should satisfy.
