Well that's a beauty!
What a respectable and not to mention beautiful collection of Reverends! They have lot's of models with very pleasing and balanced combination of shapes. I have a soft spot for Reeves Gabrels signature. Unfortunately it does not come in red.
Just looked up about the stunning Spy of yours. That's also a rare bird! And I thought my Les was a rarity, under 50 made that year (The first one) in wine red.
Finally some sunshine here today, so I was able to get few decent shots of the guitar. The metallic effect on red shows a little better on these.
Just love the headstock, the contrast between the tinted maple and the red. Must Have!
Thank you, I've owned several dozen's of them over the years...from his early amplifiers to the Reverend USA's, import line & his Railhammer pickups, Joe Naylor has been at the front of the pack with his retro-inovasions. Reverend just won Best In Show honors at the 2016 NAMM, for their new, Billy Corgan signature model. https://m.youtube.com/watch?feature=youtu.be&v=8GwZsff1mw8
You mentioned the Reeves model not being red...I went ahead & had an Unknown Hinson model repaint, the top in a custom Candy Blood Red. It's heavily modified from it's original self, with several new chrome additions...a Bigsby B5, a new 3 tone control plate & an added 6-way, rotary switch, a chrome banjo rest, (like the older USA models, on the forearm area), a third, middle p90 + all 3 pickup covers are all chrome.
I'm not surprised at all to learn of your art/design background. It show's in your guitar build & eye for aesthetics. I'm a graphic design school dropout, myself. Much like Gibson's Firebird, your Fender body would look great in a "reverse" layout...just sayin'.
Man... I'm late to this party but that Funcaster is beautiful! Superb job!
I've been waxing ecstatic about the new Offset Tele in the infamous thread and I've wanted to do my own custom Jazzcaster build for a while. This is just inspiring. Way beyond my humble build skills.
So you're true Reverend enthusiast. No wonder, really cool stuff!
Maybe I'll build a reverse some day to give company for my shamelessly intense cardinal red Epi Firebird VII. Yvette was meant to be the couple for my CAR Fender Bass VI.
This was my first attempt to finish a guitar body, so I didn't have a clue how it will turn out. Only way to have truly surprising success is risking utter failure. You don't know if it beyond your skills before trying. Just saying...
Good looking guitar! Would go great with a '50's Vette.
I'll PM my address so you can send me one...
Be cheaper for you to just send me the guitar. I'll take good care of it!
I keep coming back to this. Seriously, I might make this my wallpaper.
That is very nice, I had considered the 12 string Italia, but was put off by the scratchplate, I could go for this.
I might still have the vector files somewhere used for laser cutting the guards if you need them.
I'm flattered, thank you. It's nothing compared to insanely laborious and imaginative guitars that you can find so many on this forum, but if I may say myself, it ended up to have quite coherent style and vibe. Like if Stratocaster never happened, the missing link and other route between Tele and Jazzmaster designed in fifties.
Very nice! Stratocaster meets Telecaster meets Jazzmaster meets Rickenbacker.
An episode of will it blend? Don't forget the Dano for the lipsticks. I love all those mentioned and can't play them at the same time. This is as close as I could get.
I like guitar mishmashes, my partscaster is another one and I love it!
That looks amazing. I'm working on my first build and looking to do a similar finish on a neck to what you did on the back of the body. Any way you could give a little more detail on your process to get that look?
There's some more detail here about how it was stained
