That is a beautiful guitar, but as you say the bat markers make look rather tacky.

I dig the bats- it's part & parcel of the whole Unknown Hinson stage persona- but I know it's not for everyone.

they aren't as horrid as the bats on the prs se sig model.

these are more like a batman logo. which does make it cooler imo.

That guitar is sweet except for those inlays! This is one of the reasons I don't play signature models though; there's always some kind of quark, or some silly signature on the headstock.

Danny - remember how I had that Daredevil? I had to part with it; that "neck dive" common with SG's was a huge issue with it. It played great and sounded awesome, but since I'm getting back into gigging soon, I just couldn't deal with it. I'll still do a review though once I have some time.

Reverend just expanded their line a little, including new lefty models. What caught my attention, though, were the two models that just got Bigsby trems.

http://www.reverendguitars.com/inst...derson-pa-1-rt/

http://www.reverendguitars.com/inst...vito-signature/

Now, the Rick Vito was already on my G.A.S. list, but I think I want mine to be in black, so no Bigsby for me.

But that Pete Anderson? OMG, that is sexy!

Found another retailer who sells Reverends, and they have a couple of interesting used ones:

Probably to help visually distinguish them from the Kingbolts and seemingly ALL the other guitars based on that body style.

You just want that Anvil & Chisel pickup configuration for teh bröötz.

This looks pretty cool, too: http://elderly.com/vintage/items/30U-17637.htm

Or

http://www.guitarcenter.com/In-Stor...500-i3084133.gc

I was thinking about getting a nice used guitar to put 1 or 2 Bareknuckle Stockholm HBS-P90s into... A used Daredevil might be the way to go!

And I found this just now...

Why does their website look just like the ESP site? And why did that question come to mind?

I might get me a Volcano if I make enough money to have several guitars.

Danny, I had the manta ray 290. The price on eBay was much higher than what I bought mine for. Honestly, I frequent musicgoround.com simply because the one in Detroit, Mi. tends to have a lot of reverends in stock. The guy said something about a factory nearby. The guitar I got looked like it had never been played. I still regret getting rid of it. Once funds increase a reverend will be coming my way again soon. Great guitars!

Good to know!

Reverend is, as I recall, Detroit based- though I think most of their guitars are MiK now- and I am a fan of MGR. I used to have one near me.

Edit: just looked- they had a 290 for about the same price as the on on eBay but the surprise was the green blackburst Roundhouse for just $230...with HSC!

Edit #2: sold

That would have been a steal. The good thing about MGR is they will work with you a little. When I bought mine it was between two 290's. Both in great shape. The guy took a bunch of pictures and sent them to me and when I called he ended up taking about $100 off. All in all it was a great deal. I love the Manta/sensei/daredevil style body shape.

I just saw the daredevil for fairly decent. If only GC would just wait until I was ready.
