Overview

The Reverend BC-1 Billy Corgan Signature Electric Guitar has a fresh design with classic and modern elements that come together in a unique way. The raised center section with thinner wings and strategic chambers under the pickguard add resonance and reduce weight, while a string-thru body bridge provides maximum sustain and percussive attack.

Railhammer Billy Corgan Signature Pickups meld P90 snap with humbucker chunk, and no hum! And, finally, the body is topped with a segmented aluminum pickguard for a modern, yet timeless look. Let this guitar inspire you. Case sold separately.

Railhammer Billy Corgan signature pickups

Part of Railhammer’s new Humcutter Series, these pickups were developed with Billy to capture the clarity and dynamics of a P90, but with the thick tone and low noise of a humbucker. 

Chambered korina body
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium lightweight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities.  It is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.  On the BC-1 there are strategic chambers under the pickguard to add even more resonance and reduce weight.

Pin-lock tuners
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. Also, the posts are custom height, eliminating the need for a second string tree.

String-thru body bridge

String-thru body design and stainless steel saddles for a percussive attack that provides maximum sustain and a ringing, solid tone.

Low profile knobs / bass contour
All the controls feature the classic low profile knob shape, rendered in a chrome finish. The passive Bass Contour is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!

Graphite nut

Reverend use a graphite impregnated nut on all their instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability.

    I have been waiting for this guitar and received it about a month earlier than expected. This is an incredible piece to add to the collection and is now my main guitar!

      Comments about Reverend BC-1 Billy Corgan Signature Electric Guitar:

      A great quote once said, "the loneliest moment in life is when you just experienced the ultimate, and it has let you down.".

      We've all had buyers remorse from time to time. I say all this because I've had very high expectation for this guitar prior to actually having it in my possession. I expected to be disappointed at some level. Something was going to bug me about this guitar. But, this guitar is truly a great piece of equipment. I'm surprised I'm this satisfied. Corgan, and Reverend did a great job!

      I'm a fan of Reverend guitars. They are known for being lighter because of the Korina wood used in the body. This BC-1 is lighter than the typical Reverend guitar because of the hollowed out cavities. Palpate the back of the guitar and you'll see what I mean. The custom Billy Corgan pick ups are great. They actually get you closer to the Pumpkins sound than the traditional Reverend P90 pickups. For me, I love gear that inspires you to want to pick it up and play it. This guitar is my workhorse and I go to it all the time.
