We caught up with Joe Naylor, the Founder and Designer of Reverend Guitars at NAMM 2014. He was kind enough to show The Noise Room a few of the things they are working on this year including the new Reeves Gabrels Spacehawk and the new Pete Anderson HB Custom. Check them out for yourselves.

Details on the Reeves Gabrels Spacehawk and the Pete Anderson HB Custom Guitars:
Reeves Gabrels Spacehawk – The second signature Reverend from The Cure guitarist Reeves Gabrels (formerly with David Bowie, Tin Machine) takes semi-hollow design to another level. The highly resonant body coupled with the revolutionary Railhammer Chisel pickups make for a versatile and uniquely responsive guitar that handles everything from woody clean to high gain mean. Unique features include: forearm contour, sealed body for controlled feedback, on-off toggle switch, custom soft-touch tremolo spring, and push-pull phase switch (in the tone control) to push the sonic boundaries. Finally, an innovative semi-hollow for cutting edge players!
Pete Anderson HB Custom – The popular PA-1 platform now with Classic H humbuckers, for a smooth, thick tone! Reverend has teamed up with country/roots-rock guitar legend and Grammy winning artist/producer Pete Anderson to design this customized hollowbody. Pete wanted a classic hollow sound and look, but with the ability to play at higher volumes without uncontrollable feedback. So we developed the innovative Uni-Brace, that not only addresses feedback, but also enhances sustain, durability, and clarity. Unique features include: bushing mounted bridge, “R” embossed knobs, back sprayed/logoed pickguard, and 15th fret neck/body joint for better high fret access.
