REVEREND TRICKY GOMEZ 290 ELECTRIC GUITAR W/BIGSBY - SATIN METALLIC ALPINE - RW
Stock code: REVTRICKY290SMA
We took the Manta Ray platform, tricked it out for an offbeat sixties look, added modern features, and gave it our famous build quality. The result was a highly resonant semi-hollow body with P90 pickups that’s rich in harmonics with a punchy tone. A Bigsby tremolo completes the retro theme, and the roller bridge and Pin-Lock tuners keep it in tune. Perfect for the player who wants the raw tone and vibe of a vintage pawnshop prize, but who needs a reliable and stable instrument.
We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.
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.
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight 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 our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.
DUAL-ACTION TRUSS ROD
Our dual action 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.
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!
We use "Boneite", a synthetic bone nut on all Reverend instruments. Boneite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability.
