Nice… based on their popular Flying-V styled Volcano, Reverend this weekend officially announced the release of the new Ron Asheton Signature guitar––named after Iggy Pop & The Stooges guitarist/songwriter Ron Asheton.
The guitar will feature a solid Korina body with raised center, optional tremolo, and a dual-action truss rod (with headstock access,) but the real story here are a trio of Reverend P90 pickups, calibrated for tone & output based on position, 5-way pickup switching (including hum-cancelling when combined,) and a “Bass Contour” control to boot.
Other features are expected to include a single-piece Korina neck (glued on, and with a tilted headstock,)24-3/4“ scale length, rosewood fretboard with 12” radius and 22 MJ frets, graphite nut, Wilkinson EZ-Lock tuners, triple lightning bolt logo, and a TOM bridge with stopbar tailpiece.
Reverend Guitars is asking a list price of $839, and the guitar will be available in both Midnight Black, and Rock Orange finishes. No word yet on when to expect the Ron Asheton Signature to ship.
