Reverend has announced the USA-made Rumblefish PJ bass guitar featuring Reverend J-style bridge pickup/P-style neck pickup, volume for each pickup and master tone control. The chambered body is available in Classic Solid, Wood Look, and Brushed Aluminum finishes. Options include maple fingerboard, and two-tone teardrop case.
The aluminum reinforced neck features North American maple construction, rosewood fingerboard with rolled edges (for a broken-in feel), vintage yellow satin finish, truss rod access at the headstock, 21 medium jumbo frets, 34" scale, 1-1/2" wide nut, 10" radius fingerboard, and a medium oval back shape like an early 60's J-Bass.
Designed by Joe Naylor, the body design features a wood based phenolic laminate top and back laminated to a six inch wide white mahogany center block, to which a small steel sustain bar is imbedded. The white sides are a one-piece injection molded high impact polymer rim.
The body construction is designed to produce the attack and sustain of a solid-body, plus the acoustic richness of semi-hollow construction according to the company. The body is smaller than the typical semi-hollow and has no f-holes, eliminating feedback.
