Posted by Jon in • Guitar News,
I received news from Reverend Guitars recently that they were releasing 3 new models one of which is a signature model guitar for David Bowie/Tin Machine and solo guitar legend Reeves Gabrels but it didn’t have quite as much of a wow factor as this signature model guitar for self-proclaimed King of Country Western Troubadours Unknown Hinson. I’m not going to lie to you I know absolutely nothing about this guy other than what was in the press release which says that Unkown Hinson is an underground guitar legend and voice of Early Cuyler, from Cartoon Network’s late night Adult Swim program, Squidbillies?!
The guitar is a lightweight semi-hollow guitar that can cover everything from authentic twang to classic rock kerrang with its slim 1-1/4” thick body and a full length center block which offers resonant tone, and reduced weight. The two Reverend P-90 pickups in combination with the Bass Contour control deliver a wide pallete of tone options. The black color scheme, bat inlays, and included Coffin Case complete the vampire-meets-hillbilly vibe. Other key features include a korina body with solid spruce top, 24.75” bolt-on maple neck, and Pin-Lock tuners.
Available in Black only. List: $1329, Street $1099.
The Unknown Hinson Signature will be on display at NAMM booth 1372.
