Baritone-designed electric with roasted maple neck, rosewood fingerboard and Railhammer Humcutter pickups.

The Reverend Descent W Rosewood Fingerboard Electric Guitar features an all-new baritone design with a 26.75" scale neck that’s long enough to deliver thunderous lows, yet short enough to play like a normal guitar. It’s the best of both worlds. Strategically positioned Railhammer Humcutter pickups keep the tone tight, and Reverend’s custom SIT 12-68 gauge string set (sold separately) features a plain 3rd for easy bending. Feeling the itch for that baritone growl, but don’t want to feel like you’re playing a bass? Then the Descent W is your ticket.

Custom Pickups

Reverend designs their own proprietary custom pickups to achieve the best tonal match with their instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.

Roasted Maple Neck

Roasted maple is heat treated at over 300° F to remove sugars, moisture and impurities. This maple is lighter, more stable, and has a beautiful caramel color. The result is an exceptional maple neck that will require less seasonal adjustment and boasts a rich vintage look.

Korina Body

Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-lightweight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor to producing Reverend’s lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.

Bass Contour

This passive bass roll-off is great for tightening up the low end or re-voicing the pickups. It can make a humbucker sound like a single-coil or give a P-90 that classic twang. It’s variable pickup voicing at your fingertips.

Pin-Lock Tuners

A thumbwheel under the tuner pushes a steel pin up through the post, locking the string in place for exceptional tuning stability and super-fast string changes.

Initialed Headstock

Every Reverend is hand-initialed and serial numbered on the back by one of Reverend’s highly skilled technicians who sets up, inspects and tests every instrument.

Thin Finish

The paint on a Reverend is thinner than most production guitars, allowing the body to vibrate more freely for a more resonant and lively tone. Thick finishes might look a little slicker, but at Reverend, tone is a top priority. The finish is also UV cured, which means it's 100% dry from day one, unlike vintage-style nitrocellulose finishes, which can take years to fully dry.

Wilkinson WVS50 IIK Tremolo

The Wilkinson WVS50 IIK tremolo includes features such as saddles that lock to the baseplate, adjustable arm swing tension, and a push-in/no freeplay arm. Combined with Reverend’s boneite nut and pin-lock tuners, it stays in tune even under aggressive whammy action.

Vari-Claw Tremolo Claw

This innovative claw gives you the option of 3 springs in the middle for a firm tremolo feel, or 2 springs on the outside for a softer feel. The offset hook design lets you switch between 3 or 2 springs, with little or no cumbersome adjustment of the claw needed.

Boneite Nut

Reverend uses "Boneite," a synthetic bone nut, that’s more consistent than natural bone, on all Reverend instruments. It reduces friction, allowing the strings to slide through the nut slots smoothly, improving tuning stability.

Triple-Tree String Tree

This string tree has an extended bar to hold down three strings at a time with just one tree, eliminating G string buzz in the nut slot.

Dual-Action Truss Rod

Reverend’s dual-action rod adjusts in both directions, allowing back bow or forward bow. This assures correct adjustment range is possible regardless of string tension, extreme climate conditions, or the effects of long-term aging. It’s also located at the headstock for easy access.

Six-Bolt Neck Plate

Two extra bolts increase mounting pressure of the neck by 50%. This makes a stronger neck connection, which improves sustain, tuning stability and neck alignment.

10% Poly Caps

Reverend uses caps with a +-10% rating, while a typical cap is +-20%. Reverend caps are made to tighter specifications, so they’re more consistent. Made of polyester, they’re also longer lasting, and less affected by temperature than cheaper ceramic caps. Typically used in expensive boutique guitars.

Custom Jack Plate

Reverend’s proprietary jack plate features four mounting screws, instead of two. The extra screws prevent the plate from tearing out of the body. Made of steel for durability, the laser etched logo adds an extra touch of class.

Pure Tone Jack

All Reverend guitars use an upgraded jack by Pure Tone Technologies. A standard jack has single contacts, but the Pure Tone jack has dual contacts for improved grip, audio signal and reliability. It’s among the most dependable guitar jacks available.

Treble Bleed Circuit

All Reverend guitars have a treble bleed circuit, preserving the treble when you roll back the volume control. When you roll back a standard volume control, the tone loses treble and becomes dull sounding. Now you can turn down and still sound great.

10% Pots

Reverend uses Alpha control pots with a +-10% rating. While a typical pot is +-20%, Reverend pots are built to tighter specifications, making them more consistent. Typically used in expensive boutique guitars, but standard issue in all Reverends.
