I'm not even sure what model mine is. It's a old (maybe late 70's early 80's) black Raven guitar w/ 2 volume/tone dials, Gibson look-a-like. Even has the white and black stripes along the outside of the body. 2 humbuckers. E-mail me back if you know what model it is etc.

RE: Raven Guitar

I was hunting for guitars at ebay and I came across a Raven. I saw all the fancy upwards of $200.00+ guitars before hand - been looking for hours but then the picture loaded for a Raven.
24 Fret. Sunburst. The shape - DAMN! It was like "CLICK!" and I had been seeing Crow (the movie) - you know the first one in my mind for a while? Where he's on the building playing,
and I'm obsessed with death so Raven - COOL! Anyhow I sent out payment - won it for $120.00. Freind of mine looked at the pick said it was custom, and that's good. He
felt it may even be better than his electric. All I know is I wanted to learn guitar, and "CLICK!". Look for that when looking for a guitar. You'll know what I mean. I'll tell you what she's like
when I get her - OK?

Re: Raven Guitars, RST and RMS 1000

Dude, These little guitars are the best! I have to tell you that the Les Paul RM-2000 (Ibelive thats the model #) is killer! Workmanship, ease of play seem to be great. The more expensive line, has a lifetime warranty. The factory repair locations are located in Virgina. I expect we'll be hearing alot about these guys. Raven is made in Korea, and they also make many other lines for other companies. THey dont turn out 10,00 aday, and the playability seems to be equivalent to the Gibson Les Paul. Its nice! I have he bass Guitar, (one of 6 I own.) And the tone I get is up there very nice! Smooth.... Oh, I got the info from the US Rep, when I spoke to him this past week. I to could not find a thing on them... again, I expect to see big changes, soon.
Later dude!

Check Harmony Central/Guitar Database. They have several reviews from Raven owners, all quite favorable.

Re: Raven Guitars, RST and RMS 1000

I have heard a raven. It's like plugging into a turd and putting strings on it and trying to play. The cheapest nastiest sound I have ever heard in all my years of playing bass. I have also heard a 6 string... ewwww... If you want to know beauty and precision go get 700 dollars and buy yourself a Cort Curbow bass or get 1200 dollars and buy a beautiful 1 piece bass guitar. Or if you want a 6 string or up buy yourself an Ibanez 6 or 7 string series. Until then don't go online and brag about a 200 dollar guitar...

I don't think you can play. It's obvious to me that the name on the headstock means more to you then your ability or lack there of. It's probably your amp..I don't even have to hear you and I know I can blow you off the stage anytime, little boy. Remember, it's not the instrument, it's the person behind it.

Re: Raven Guitars, RST and RMS 1000

I have a Raven RSM 5000 neckthrough. The guitars are everything they claim to be right out of the box! I am in a professional band and I absolutely love the action on it and the feel. I would recommend these guitars to anyone that really enjoys to play.
