Reverend have already proved themselves to be masters of mixing up the old recipes to create something new and tasty, and they reckon this Fender-inspired solidbody has all the tones you need for rock, blues and country. The Charger 290, you see, is not as simple as it looks. The body shape, maple neck and long control plate suggest a Tele, but the body is korina (as used for the original Gibson Flying V and Explorer) and the pickups are P90s – hotter than normal at the bridge, cooler than normal at the neck. And then there’s the ‘contour’ control, which offers a whole new dimension of tone-shaping.
