Fat, Raw and Bluesy with the Perfect Amount of Bite!
Th Reverend Jetstream 390 Oceanside features a Korina solid body like that found on boutique and vintage instruments. Korina is a medium weight wood that is highly prized for its resonant qualities, and is largely responsible for producing lively and responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics, characteristics that Reverend has become known for.
The signature roast maple neck is heat treated to over 300° F which removes excess water, sugars, and other impurities from the wood, making it light and stable and giving it a gorgeous caramel color, resulting in a neck that requires less seasonal adjustment and has a vintage look.
Another key to the sonic versatility of the Jetstream 390 is the combination of proprietary 9A5 pickups in the bridge, middle and neck positions. The 9A5 Bridge Pickup has a raw, classic tone, but is wound to sound hotter and thicker than a vintage P90, while the 9A5 neck and middle pickups are a bit cleaner than a vintage P90, with clear, open tone. When used with the bridge of neck pickups, the middle pickup is RWRP (reverse wound, reverse polarity) for hum-cancelling.
Controls include a 5-way pickup selector switch, volume and tone controls, and a bass contour control which rounds out the bass, giving the guitar a fuller tone when desired. Positions 2 and 4 on the pickup selector deliver classic “quack” but with a thicker tonality which can be controlled using the bass contour, while the bridge pickup alone delivers a raw, classic distorted tone. The hardware includes a boneite nut, Wilkinson WVS50 IIK Tremolo and Reverend Pin-Lock tuners to provide stable tuning.
