What we say:
At a Glance
Often described as a pioneer in tone creation, Billy Corgan joined forces with Reverend to create this amazing signature model. Whether you are a big fan of The Smashing Pumpkins and want a piece of their world or are just in the market for a high end unique guitar, this is going to be a keeper for even the hardest to please players. Building upon the high level foundation that Reverend have created, this model takes on a one of a kind look and sound that reflect the culmination of Billy's unique sonic journey. Every feature has been thought out with tone and playability in mind. From the Signature Railhammer pickups to the string-thru body with stainless steel saddles, it all represents a higher class of instrument. Get that fuzz pedal out and play through all of your favourite tracks from Siamese Dream or let the suave tones take your creativity to a whole new level.
Features We Love:
Billy Corgan Signature Railhammer Pickups
Railhammer got together with Billy Corgan to produce these beefed up P90 style pickups. Focused and articulate but with a slight midrange hump, the bridge pickup gives some seriously big sounds when partnered with a distortion or fuzz. If you listen to the guitar tones on some of the biggest hits from The Smashing Pumpkins then you can see exactly where the thinking is coming from with this design. It certainly takes cues from his past but adds on this to give a progressive edge to what is now a highly regarded sound of the 90s. The neck pickup is dialled in slightly more on the treble giving it a bit more articulation which allows those cleans to sparkle through beautifully. Think of the snap of a P90 blended with a humbucker chunk but with the added benefit of no hum!
Chambered Korina Body
While Korina tends to be Reverend's wood of choice, this body differs from other models with the inclusion of strategically placed chambers under the pickguard. On a practical level, this reduces the weight of the guitar making those long sets a lot easier to get through without the usual shoulder weight fatigue. There is another benefit to this though - even more resonance for a big and lively sound.
On either side of the raised centre section you'll find sections of the aluminium pickguard. Each segment of this has been thought out to give the best visual effect while still retaining a practical use based on their placement. Another piece of unique styling that adds some extra modern flavour.
- A must for any fan of Billy Corgan/The Smashing Pumpkins
- A highly resonant guitar made with tone in mind
- Top spec that will stand the test of time
