Agreed. This one sounds great, loud with lots of natural compression. It really likes DR Sunbeams, they seem to make it come alive like no other strings.

The Yamahas at this price point provide so much guitar for the money I bought an FG820-12 as well. Plays beautifully, but I haven’t found the ideal strings for that one yet - I hate re-stringing a 12.

DR Sunbeams, never tried those: What gauge do you use, 12s?

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.

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!
