My first Reverend. My first guitar with any kind of hollow to it besides routing. My first 24.75" scale. I'd been jonesing for a semi-hollow, something 335-like for a while. I was eyeballing the Epiphone Pro's, but never went for it. Then I stumbled on the 335-esque Reverends and got interested. I like the slightly different looks, the Fender-like headstock, the Bigsby, the bass-cut control. Then I saw this one on Reverb and knew it was the one. I watched it for nearly a year before I decided I'd tempted fate long enough. I'm digging it so far. The pictures don't do the color justice; it's a shiny, though not glossy, gold all over except for the headstock. I still have to dial in the pickups and explore what it can do plugged in, but I have it cleaned up and newly string. I was concerned about how the 24.75" scale would feel (I'd only played 25.5" electrics before), and it does feel different, but I don't know how much of that to put down to the scale and how much to put down to it just being a different guitar. I'm no neck-expert, but I'll say it's a little on the fat side for my experience but still comfortable. The 12" radius (another slight outlier among my collection) is different but feels good. I did switch the position of the bass- and treble-cut controls, just because I prefer to have the bass cut "on top" (I dunno either, man). I'm also going to replace the Bigsby spring with a taller one; the stock spring barely clears the knobs and that's without even pushing down on it (I don't mind the Reverend squishy spring, but I don't need it). I may measure the Bigsby to see if Callaham's bits will fit it for easier re-stringing, but otherwise I think she's good.
