A Unique Solid Body With the Big Tone of a Hollow Body
With the Air Sonic W Semi Hollow Body, Reverend founder Joe Naylor sought to realize a personal dream: to combine the sustain and attack of a solid body, with the big tone of a hollow body. With radically thinner wings, thru-body-f-holes allowing the body to resonate, and a thick center ridge delivering solid sustain, the Air Sonic W is the realization of Naylor’s sonic dreams!
The Air Sonic W features a medium lightweight Korina body, a wood that is prized for its resonant qualities. Korina is used for the bodies of all Reverend guitars and is the key factor in the production of rich harmonics and a lively, responsive tone typical of all of Reverend’s offerings. This is particularly true of the Air Sonic whose thick center ridge and the thru-body-f-holes allow the body to produce the rich sustain and big hollow body tone Naylor was looking for.
The roasted maple neck is heat treated to over 300° F in a process that is designed to remove moisture, sugars and impurities from the wood. The result is an exceptional maple neck that is more stable and lighter, with a rich, vintage caramel color. The Pau Ferro roasted maple fretboard is extremely easy to play and the deep cutaway offers easy access to all of its 22 medium jumbo frets.
The hardware and electronics feature Railhammer Humcutters that capture the clarity and dynamics of a P90 without the hum. The revolutionary pickup design from Reverend founder Joe Naylor features rails under the wound strings, and poles under the plain strings, delivering tight lows and fat highs with exceptional clarity and punch. In the bridge we have a Wilkinson WVS50 IIK Tremolo and proprietary Reverend pin-lock tuners to keep you in tune.
