Pete Anderson is cool. Reverend guitars are cool. Sparkly stuff is cool. Wo what happens when you put all three of them together? Oh lordy, it’s a coolness overload. Anderson is such a ridiculously talented guitarist – did you know that one time I bought a Dwight Yokham album solely to steal Pete Anderson licks? No? Well ya do now. And you should do it too, because he’s a walking encycloedia of guitaristic goodness. Now Reverend’s Pete Anderson PA-1 RT and the Reverend Pete Anderson Eastsider models are available in Silver Metal Flake exclusively at Wildwood Guitars in Colorado. Here’s the press release:
LIVONIA, MI – Reverend Guitar’s special run of the Gold Metal Flake Pete Anderson Series guitars was such a success, that the company decided to do a run of Silver Metal Flake! As with the Gold Metal Flake guitars, these are available on the Reverend Pete Anderson PA-1 RT and the Reverend Pete Anderson Eastsider. They are only available at Wildwood Guitars, Colorado’s premier guitar store.
The Pete Anderson Signature Eastsider-T is in homage to vintage guitars, with a number of traditional features, while still maintaining the famed Reverend innovation. It has a chambered Korina body, a satin finish, and a compound-radius maple fretboard. With a push-pull phase switch, custom alnico pickups, stainless steel saddles, and a graphite nut, it adds up to the perfect old-meets-new guitar.
The Pete Anderson Signature PA-1 RT is loaded with Reverend’s own Revtron pickups for extra midrange punch and twang on the PA-1 platform — a large, Maple hollow-body with Reverend’s proprietary Uni-Brace system. The unique structure controls the feedback that you would normally expect in similar guitars, while adding sustain. The model also has a 3-piece Korina neck, a 15th fret neck and body joint for better access to the higher points on the neck, “R” embossed knobs, and an “R” logo pickguard. The exclusive Reverend Bass Contour, a variable bass roll-off that adjusts the pickup voicing, is featured on this model as well. All PA-1s come with a Bigsby B70.
“It’s influenced by the classics. The look is very important – you wear it – but it’s also a musician’s tool, and everything has to work. Everything continues to evolve for Reverend, and that’s part of our philosophy. The last Reverend is the best Reverend.” – Joe Naylor, Founder of Reverend Guitars.
