Ian Anderson


Our Perspective:
This guitar just came in on a consignment. The guitar sounds and plays incredible. Its in near perfect condition, one small area of dents (not bad) at the edge of the lower treble side. This was purchased at the Walter Becker Auction last October - the frets show only the slightest amount of use - This guitar is one of the best “Tele’s” we have seen - Don’t let this one get away!!

Consignment Sale, as such, All Sales Final!

SJR (From the Internet)
The Slingshot Jr. is probably one of the most underrated Guitars in the Reverend line up. Coming on to the scene in late 1999, the first Slingshot Jr. was serial numbered 02159 and was also marked "Jr.#1" and had both Zack's and Joe's Initials.

Six month's later in September of 2001, just about the entire production of Slingshot Jrs ceased. In 2006, as USA production was waning and the import models were waxing, the "last" Slingshot Jr. was made, SN 04727.

The official tally is 45 Slingshot JR’s produced.

Specifications:

  • Model - Slingshot JR.
  • Serial # - 02330
  • Color - 57' Yellow
  • Weight - 5 lbs. 15 oz.
  • Fingerboard - Rosewood
  • Pickups - P-90
  • Controls - Volume, Tone
  • Bridge - Fixed
  • Case - Hardshell Case

Reverend USA Guitars
Reverend's USA Guitars were made from 1997 until the Summer of 2006 when guitar production went completely offshore. The USA made Reverend's are classic example of "outside of the box" thinking by creator Joe Naylor. Just about every review of a Reverend guitar glows in its praise of sound, versatility, and value. Guitar Player Magazine has awarded various Reverend models with "Editors Pick" (the new import model's have racked up this honor as well!) on multiple occasions.

Making a Reverend: The Body
All of the USA Reverends share the basic shape that is is defined by an injection molded polymer rim. Reverend USA Guitar BodyThere is a white mahogany center block in which a steel sustain bar has been embedded. The tops and backs are either laminated phenolic (wood and phenolic resin) or laminated phenolic with various metal finishes.
The channels for pickups and electronics are basically the same for all the Reverends. The differences lie in the types and number of pickups used, and the pick guard that houses them. While this is great for the builder and those that want to modify/customize their guitars, it muddies the waters substantially for the collector who are in search of "stock from the factory" models as there are many Reverend guitars that have either been upgraded, customized, or changed from their original form. To make matters worse (for the collector) these changes could have been made by their owners, or they could have been made for their owners by the Reverend factory, though fortunately, Reverend kept track of most of these changes in their instrument archives.

It is not uncommon to find Reverends for sale that are currently Slingshots (two P90s), but have been Avengers, Spys, or Commandos when then came from the factory. While it doesn't affect the guitar's playability, it will effect its collector value.

One word of caution: If you do decided to "modify" your USA Reverend, be sure to keep all of the original parts. Eventually, life may necessitate the need to sell your guitar, and you get a better return on you investment if you guitar is as close to its "from the factory" condition as possible. "Extreme" (irreversible) modifications make the guitar difficult to value and thus harder to sell.

Making a Reverend: The Neck
Reverend USA's come with one of the most respected and admired necks in the guitar business. The USA Reverend line of Guitars went through three phases of guitar necks.

"Eastpointe" Guitar Neck: From about SN 00275

  • Second version guitar neck
  • Headstock decal says "Eastpointe, MI" under Reverend
  • Truss rod adjustment at headstock
  • Thick front to back profile
  • Nut width approximately 1-5/8"
  • Traditional one-way truss rod
  • EARLY EASTPOINTE - dark walnut "skunk stripe" on back of neck
  • LATE EASTPOINTE -NO Skunk stripe, Neck has a 1/2 inch square aluminum reinforcement channel
  • Switch from early to late Approximately SN 02275

Making a Reverend: The Pickups
I need to flesh this section out more, and its a work in Progress. If anyone has decent information regarding Reverend Pickups that were used on Guitars during the USA Era, please let me know.

Reverend Musical Instruments used their own brand of pickups (though made overseas) on all but the earliest of their guitars. The non-Reverend pickups used were more than likely Kent Armstrongs. Even after Reverend began using "their own" pickups, they utilized Kent Armstrongs for the guitar models with lipstick pups (SPY and Early Commando). Other examples are the Rio Grande pickups that were used on the Hot Shot Jrs and the Tele size twin rail humbucker bridge pickup used in the Avenger GT.

To be honest, I am not sure when the switch was made to using the in house Reverend brand of pickups. If anyone can supply this information I'd appreciate it and get this section updated.
