Reverend has revamped the Jetstream series for 2012. The new Jetstream 390 has evolved from the 290 and comes in Rock Orange with a Maple neck, or 3-Tone Burst with Rosewood fretboard. Wilkinson tremolos now come as standard. The bridge pickup is slightly hotter than a traditional soapbar, and the middle & neck pickups are slightly cleaner. Positions 2 and 4 on the pickup selector deliver classic “quack” but with a thicker tonality. Delivers big, open cleans and smooth but clear distorted tones.

      I find it very interesting that these Reverend guitars retail for a quite modest price and have korina bodies whereas the Gibson Custom shop ’59 Korina flying V retails for about $12000 . So what’s the story, they can’t claim that the cost of the Korina wood is reflected in their price? Is it just to make them exclusive and collectable ?
      I would have thought a Gibson ’59 Custom Shop Korina V should realistically retail for no more than $5000 , korina wood, gold hardware etc. A mahogany version for about $4000 and both still slightly overpriced for what they are a slab bodied set-neck dual humbucker guitar?
