The Reverend Contender 290 is a flat-top, single-cut set neck guitar that seamlessly blends timeless appeal with modern craftsmanship. With an offset body and a sleek six-in-line headstock, this model exudes a fresh and contemporary vibe.
The Contender 290 boasts a solid Korina body that provides a sturdy foundation for exceptional sound. The strategic chambering further enriches the tonal characteristics and contributes to a balanced and resonant tone. This construction ensures clarity, depth, and comfortable playability, thanks to reduced weight.
The three-piece Korina neck enhances the guitar's elegance and stability. With a medium oval profile, it offers a comfortable grip for smooth transitions and effortless playing across the 24 3/4" scale length. The rosewood fingerboard, featuring a 12" radius, provides a superb platform for expressive playing and precise articulation with 22 meticulously crafted frets.
Reverend's commitment to player-centric design is evident in the Contender 290's pin-lock tuners, ensuring reliable tuning stability and easy string changes. The dual-action truss rod, accessible from the headstock, allows for precise neck adjustments to suit individual playing preferences. At the nut, a 43mm width Boneite nut enhances string performance and tuning stability.
With a streamlined control layout consisting of volume, tone, bass contour, and a 3-way switch, the Contender 290 puts versatile tone-shaping capabilities at your fingertips. Whether you seek vintage warmth or modern aggression, this guitar empowers you to achieve your desired sound effortlessly.
