Definitely a try before you buy but the Reverend guitar has a giant pile of changes.. It's pretty far from a normal Tele and maybe that helps it. The body shape and wood is pretty dramatically different considering it's a larger guitar and has the raised center ridge + is made of Korina instead of Ash or Alder. The Fluence pickups are super interesting but yah.. no way I'd buy without trying first. And of course it could be some of the other fluence pickups are going to be a better option for some guitars too. I bet these pickups are capable of being revoiced through the USB jack with some magic software, but good luck getting Fishman to share that with you. They very likely have some interesting ability to plug a computer into the guitar and play with the EQ of the pickups. Or it's possible they baked the EQ in with no way to change it after production. But the first is more likely with modern stuff.
