When you set out to do something this epic, you don’t repeat yourself. A fresh design with classic and modern elements that come together in a unique way. The raised center section with thinner wings and strategic chambers under the pickguard add resonance and reduce weight, while a string-thru body bridge provides maximum sustain and percussive attack. Railhammer Billy Corgan Signature Pickups meld P90 snap with humbucker chunk, and no hum! And, finally, the body is topped with a segmented aluminum pickguard for a modern, yet timeless look. Let this guitar inspire you.
RAILHAMMER BILLY CORGAN SIGNATURE PICKUPS
Part of Railhammer’s new Humcutter Series, these pickups were developed with Billy to capture the clarity and dynamics of a P90, but with the thick tone and low noise of a humbucker.
STRING-THRU BODY BRIDGE
String-thru body design and stainless steel saddles for a percussive attack that provides maximum sustain and a ringing, solid tone.
We use a graphite impregnated nut on all Reverend instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability.
A thumbwheel under the tuner pushes a steel pin up through the post, locking the string in place for exceptional tuning stability and super-fast string changes. Also, the posts are custom height, eliminating the need for a second string tree.
CHAMBERED KORINA BODY
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium lightweight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. It is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics. On the BC-1 there are strategic chambers under the pickguard to add even more resonance and reduce weight.
LOW PROFILE KNOBS / BASS CONTOUR
All the controls feature the classic low profile knob shape, rendered in a chrome finish. The passive Bass Contour is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!
