    I own two bursts, an R8 and one strat. I'm not a big fan of factory relics, but this was an offer too good to resist and it's really grown on me.

    Until mine arrives, this stock image will have to suffice.

    A gift from the daft old bat (mother in law) about 20 years ago. :)

    I tended only to wear for gigs and I had plenty of others to rotate it with. These days I prefer my sweatshirt...

    Me too, thanks! That top was sourced from Tempered Tonewoods out in California. Roasted flame maple.

    What a great bunch of bursts on this thread! I never used to like them up until recently and it’s like someone flipped a switch! I found this Reverend last week and is the last humbucker faded burst that I think they made a few years ago as it’s not been in their website selection for awhile. It’s like someone found it hiding somewhere in the back of the store or something but I grabbed it fast as I could not find another anywhere!

    Pulled the trigger and this literally came last of the FedEx delivery hours yesterday! I haven’t had time to take pics yet but here’s a few from the store! It sounds so freakin good :) Very happy!

    IMG_20210511_072918_hdr.jpg My RCS. In the right light it is gorgeous. Plays as easy and as comfortable as my '08 American Standard. But that's where the similarity ends. The RC pickups make this guitar sound incredible... Into my PR or the Vox... Divine! Happy!

    Mine are of the hand blended/rubbed variety. Only the darkest brown around the perimeter is off the gun. MandoFamBack.jpg IMG_1882.jpg archtop shop.jpg IMG_2261.jpg
