Powder Yellow is a cool Reverend guitar color
This is one of the best Reverend Guitars colors I've seen to date.
Above is a Reverend Flatroc model in Powder Yellow. If there were any Reverend Guitars model I'd buy if I had the cash, this would be it. The look is what sold me on it first. Yellow against a roasted maple neck really works here. Smartly done.
But aside from that, the rest of the guitar also pretty much exactly the way I'd want it.
The Flatroc has many things going for it (Korina body, pin-lock tuners, proper dome knobs, dual-action truss rod, etc.), but what attracts me other than its look is the configuration. It has a Les Paul style top-loader system with bridge and tail piece and Telecaster style knobs and pickup selector switch.
You're probably thinking, "So what's that knob above the pick guard?" That's the bass contour control. Most if not all Reverend electrics have this feature. It's a passive bass roll-off that adds in some very nice tone shaping. Useful? Actually, yes, it is.
One of these days I'm going to get another yellow guitar in the barn, because I really miss having one. I've got a thing for yellow electrics and always have. The Flatroc, being it's offered in a very nice yellow, is now on my to-get list. 🙂
