Reverend Manta Ray 390 Limited Edition[bquote]Warm and sweet, with the acoustic richness and complex overtones only a full size semi-hollow can deliver.[/bquote]
The bridge pickup is slightly hotter than a vintage soapbar, and the neck pickup slightly cleaner. Round enough for jazz, but this ray can sting too, with plenty of sustain and attack for rock and blues! P-90’s add a raw upper-mid edge and percussive attack to the recipe. Positions 2 and 4 on the 5-way selector give the classis “quack” but with a thicker tonality and midrange presence. The 1-3/4″ thick body and flat top gives it a clean, fresh look, and yields a slim and manageable body. Solid wood construction is featured throughout, with no plywood. The back, sides and center block are produced from one slab of korina which is routed from the top, and then capped with a solid maple flat top with flame maple veneer. Excellent sustain and attack are coupled with substantial resonance, for a uniquely big and responsive tone.
