A sleek new body design, a simple yet effective control layout, and a Wilkinson tremolo system that stays in tune without the hassle of a locking nut. The revolutionary Railhammer Anvil bridge and Hyper Vintage neck pickups take it to another level, for the ultimate bolt-on rock guitar.
Designed by Reverend founder Joe Naylor, Railhammers feature a unique rail/pole design that keeps the lows tight and the highs fat. They sound great clean, but for heavy distortion or low tunings, nothing compares to Railhammers.
Wilkinson WVS50 IIK tremolo
Features include saddles that lock to the baseplate, adjustable arm swing tension, and a push-in/no freeplay arm. Combined with the graphite nut and pin-lock tuners, it stays in tune even under aggressive whammy action.
Dual-action truss rod
This dual-action truss rod adjusts in both directions, allowing back bow or forward bow. This assures correct adjustment range is possible regardless of string tension, extreme climate conditions, or the effects of long-term aging. It's also located at the headstock for easy access.
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-lightweight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor to producing lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.
Reverend 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.
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.
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.

Comments about Reverend Kingbolt RA FM Electric Guitar:
I've owned/own high end Gibson Les Pauls, a PRS Custom 24, Fender Strats and Tele's. That said I now play two guitars live. My Reverend Kingbolt RA FM and my PRS. The Kingbolt finds a sweet spot between a Les Paul and a Strat that is just a wonderland to play in. My Strat playing band mate loves how this guitar sounds and he's not the only one. This is one guitar I would immediately replace if necessary.
