I just picked up this Reverend Six Gun on trade and I could not be happier with it. I had a Les Paul Studio that I wasn’t using so I put it up for trade just to see what else was out there. Somebody offered this Reverend plus cash to make up the difference. I was originally wanting to trade for a USA Tele, and I don’t normally go for non-traditionally-shaped guitars so I almost passed on it. But on paper the Six Gun seemed to have a lot of things going for it so I took a chance… and I’m really glad I did.

It also has the Reverend bass contour knob, which on this guitar is super useful. The neck has a slim c-profile with a 12” radius and a satin back. Very easy to play. The body has a great balance with no neck-dive. Fit and finish is 100% top notch and it’s in brand new condition.

For me it’s kinda like the best of both worlds. In stock form the Six Gun has a standard 5-way Strat-style switch, which means you miss out on that Tele middle position tone. So I added the Gilmour mod with a mini toggle to turn on the neck pickup. So I can have the bridge and neck together, or even all pickups on at once.

Perfect for modern country and blues with a cranked amp. But when you roll the contour knob down it lowers the bass and reduces output, giving you more of a vintage vibe and some really nice clean tones. But what’s really cool is you can set up your normal tone with the bass contour turned down a bit. Then when you roll it up it adds thickness, volume and gain. Going from 0-to-10 on the contour knob is like kicking on a boost pedal. You can go from rhythm to lead with a twist of a knob. And the kicker… with the extra cash he threw in I was able to pick up a pedal I’ve had my eye on - a VS Audio Blackbird. I love my Marshall Bluesbreaker but I’ve been looking for a way to add some Fender tones to the mix. It should be here in a few days and I can’t wait to check it out. There are a bunch of videos out there, but Shane does a review on his InTheBlues YouTube channel where he uses it with a Marshall combo. At one point he starts riffing on Slow Dancing in a Burning Room with a Strat. When I heard “that tone” come out of a Marshall DSL it sold me on the Blackbird.
