The Contender boasts a classic retro look with a modern feel featuring Retroblast pickups and a Bigsby B50.

The Reverend Contender is the guitar maker's flat-top, single-cut set neck guitar. It's classically retro, but the offset body and six-in-line headstock give the guitar a modern feel. A strategic chamber under the pickguard increases resonance and reduces weight. The Contender RB includes Reverend’s all-new Retroblast pickups. The mini-humbuckers have percussive, yet smooth tone backed with plenty of energy for classic power chord crunch or rockabilly blues rhythms. Add a Bigsby B50, and this guitar effortlessly combines vintage with cutting-edge—a hallmark of Reverend’s original designs.
