It takes balls to play an Avocado color guitar

Are you up to the challenge?

Above is a Reverend Double Agent in Avocado. This is obviously not a regular run color. But it surprisingly works well.

Here are the three reasons why this works:

First is something you probably didn't even notice. There's a P90 pickup at the neck position. That soap bar shape pickup with its off-white color on this guitar in this finish looks great. Sounds great, too.

Second is the roasted maple neck. Were this just a natural color maple, it wouldn't work. But it's roasted darker, so now it does.

Third is something you probably also didn't notice. Telecaster-like controls. The chrome plate breaks up the look in a nice way. Without it, the body color would be too overbearing.

Now as far as the playability and sound of the instrument, Reverend knows how to build a guitar right. It's modernized but has enough traditional elements to it where yes, you can just pick it up and play it.

The only thing that may throw you off at first is that extra knob on the upper bout. That's the bass contour control, and it's a thing Reverend does. Some like the different tones you get from it while others don't. If you don't like it, just don't use it and you still have a great sounding guitar overall.

And where the neck feel is concerned, if you ever wondered what would happen if you took Fender and Gibson designs where you used the best from each and combined them into one neck, Reverend pretty much nailed that.

Lastly, Avocado is actually not the most daring color. If you're really looking for different, see the same guitar in Mulberry Mist with dark roasted maple.
