Reverend Charger Z90 Black, 2007

Instrument Categories: , ,

Now discontinued, this Reverend Charger from 2007 is a great example of the quality of Reverend’s instruments.

At their inception in 1997, Reverend guitars were built near Detroit, Michigan except for their Stage King series. However, within a decade, demand and costs had risen and in late 2006 US production ended and was contracted to Mirr Music, one of the top boutique builders in Korea. These are top-quality instruments with very good finishes and fretwork.

Here we’re looking at a somewhat unusual Reverend Charger. This model uses a Korina (Terminalia superba, or African Limba) single-cutaway body, bolted to a Maple neck with a 25.5 inch scale Indian Rosewood fingerboard. Reverend-branded tuners are at the head, and a Gibson-style adjustable bridge and stop tailpiece are installed. Currently the strings are top-wrapped over the tailpiece to reduce break-over.

For electronics, a pair of probably aftermarket Harmonic Design Z-90 pickups run through a 3-way switch, a master Volume control, treble cut and bass cut controls, to a side-mounted output jack. The pickguard is 3-layer faux tortoise (Tortoise, white, black) and the unusual detail is the faux tortoise (tortoise, white, black, white) applied to the tops of the Z-90s, which otherwise have uncovered but taped bobbins.

This Reverend Charger is a well-built guitar that plays really well and has a wide range of tones, and is in very good, clean condition.

The original hard shell case is included.

Here’s what Harmonic Design says about the Z-90 pickup:

“Large single coil pickups can have a wider tonal range than humbuckers and many players prefer the “spank”, or wider dynamic range of single coils. Our Z-90 is the Original humbucker-size single coil pickup, and will drop right into your stock humbucker routing and mounting rings, with no modifications to the guitar.

The Z-90 matched set uses two completely different pickups for the neck and bridge positions. The oversize pole pieces provide a higher output and richer bass response, and allow for string bending without loss of output. The neck pickup uses an oversize magnet structure to tighten up the fat bass response. The bridge pickup uses a special bobbin and winding technique to allow 30% more turns to balance the neck pickup with an even hotter output, and give you a huge, fat sound with incredible range, punch, and clarity.
Introduced in 1994, Z-90 pickups continue to generate rave reviews from guitar magazines and pro players everywhere.

‘Open’ sound. Big, expressive tone that you can adjust from ‘smokey’ to ‘crisp’ by changing the height adjustment. Z-90’s drop right into standard mounting rings to allow height adjustment and easy retro-fitting to any humbucker type guitar. The Z-90’s oversized pole pieces will accommodate both Gibson and Fender string spacing and just about anything else in the neighborhood. So replace them pesky humbuckers with the ULTIMATE single coil tone!”
