Reverend Tricky Gomez LE

Reverend announces the availability of the Tricky Gomez LE, the limited edition version of their retro-looking semi-hollow guitar with Bigsby tremolo.

Tricky Gomez LE

It features the same double cutaway shape of their Manta Ray series but with a more "twang" friendly pickup configuration and more color choices.

Like all Reverend Guitars, the Tricky Gomez LE features Korina wood as used on the sides, back and on the center block. Completing the look and tone of the guitar is a solid maple top that comes in five flavors of metal flake finish: Green, Red, Blue, Silver and Gold.

The three piece Korina neck has a medium oval profile, with the nutwidth measuring 1.656" and a radius of 12". It is topped by a rosewood fretboard with 22 medium jumbo frets running along its 24.75" scale length. The headstock features Reverend's popular Strat-like 6 tuners on the top side shape, and it houses the dual action truss rod access.

A major difference between the Tricky Gomez and the Manta Ray is the use of Revtron humbucking pickups. This allows for a more "twang" friendly retro-tone that matches the pawnshop prize looks of the instrument. Essential controls are provided, including a 3-way pickup selector, volume knob, tone knob and Reverend's popular "bass contour" knob.

Other hardware include a Bigsby B-70 Tremolo, roller bridge and pin-lock tuners. Reverend Guitars summarized the guitar by saying: "We took the Manta Ray platform and tricked it out for an offbeat sixties look, but with modern features and build quality."

If you are wondering what the LE label stands for, it actually means Limited Edition. Reverend is only making 13 guitars of each color, so if you are interested you better get inline fast before supplies run out. The Tricky Gomez LE is currently retailing for $1,228.
