NAMM 1016: Reverend Billy Corgan

This new Billy Corgan signature is a great retro-looking mishmash of a guitar; but what else would you expect from Reverend? A whole host of modern features in locking tuners, graphite nut and the bass contour control contrast against the 50s/60s look of the guitar, but there’s more to this guitar than what’s on the surface. 

 

Interestingly, Corgan’s previous signature guitar featured single coil-sized humbuckers, whereas this not model boasts P90-voiced humbuckers (a new “Railhammer” design). A 25.5” scale length, 22 fret and a 12” radius makes for a pretty unusual spec for a guitar of this design. Available in a number of suitably quirky colours (Pearl White, Metallic Alpine, Purple Burst and Silverburst)
