Introducing the Reverend Contender 290, an exquisite guitar with a single-cut set neck design that seamlessly combines classic allure and contemporary craftsmanship. Sporting an offset body and a sleek six-in-line headstock, this model emanates a fresh and up-to-date vibe.

The Contender 290 showcases a solid Korina body that forms a strong foundation for extraordinary sound. The clever chambering technique enhances the tonal qualities and contributes to a well-balanced and resonant tone. This construction guarantees clarity, depth, and comfortable playability, all thanks to its reduced weight.

Enhancing the guitar's elegance and stability is the three-piece Korina neck. With its medium oval profile, it offers a comfortable grip, facilitating smooth transitions and effortless playing across the 24 3/4" scale length. The rosewood fingerboard, boasting a 12" radius, serves as a fantastic platform for expressive playing and precise articulation with its meticulously crafted 22 frets.

Reverend's dedication to player-centric design is evident in the Contender 290's pin-lock tuners and 43mm width Boneite nut ensure dependable tuning stability and effortless string changes. The dual-action truss rod, easily accessible from the headstock, enables precise neck adjustments tailored to individual playing preferences.
