Reverend Airwave 12-String Metallic Alpine
Reverend Airwave 12-String 3-Tone Sunburst
Larger than life tone and style, not larger than life problems. The bridge is fully intonateable for all 12 strings – independently – chords are always in tune and sound sweeter than you’d expect. The wide nut provides spacing for the extra strings, and the shorter 24-3/4” scale length provides lower string tension. Easier chording means it’s easier to get that shimmer.
Reverend designs their own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with their instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.
FULLY INTONATEABLE BRIDGE:
Chords stay in tune and sound sweeter because this bridge allows independent intonation for each of the 12 strings.
1-3/4" WIDE GRAPHITE NUT:
We use a graphite impregnated nut on all Reverend instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability. The wide nut provides proper spacing for the extra strings, making it easier to play.
FIVE-PIECE KORINA AND WALNUT NECK:
Multiple layers make the neck extra stong, and able to withstand the pressure of twelve stripngs, yet the Korina means the neck is lightweight.
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.
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!
