Reverend's Decision P Bass is an exploration into the P/J bass pickup configuration that showcases a combination of traditional design and modern enhancements, creating a notable piece in Reverend's growing collection of innovative bass guitar offerings.
Cut from solid Korina, the body of the Decision P captures enough low-end to kick, and this medium-light wood makes for an instrument that weighs slightly less and makes those longer sessions less strenuous on the shoulders. The neck, attached with a hefty 6-bolt design, in constructed with roasted maple, and is topped with a fingerboard of the same material. This wood undergoes a heat treatment at over 300°F, eliminating sugars, moisture, and impurities. The result is a lighter fingerboard with a beautiful caramel color, divided by 21 medium oval frets, measuring 0.110" W x 0.050" H.
This bass features a versatile P/J pickup configuration: with Reverend's own Jazz Bomb and P-Blade pickups stealing the spotlight. The J-Bomb delivers warm mids and a focused attack, enhanced output, and a percussive quality when played with intensity. Constructed with 43-gauge wire and a ceramic magnet, it boasts a hum-free operation and a formidable 14K ohms. On the other hand, the Reverend P-Blade neck pickup captures the classic P-bass character but elevates it with increased volume, sustain, clarity, and extended low-end response. Featuring 42-gauge wire and a ceramic magnet, it measures 12K ohms.
The bass showcases an elegant gloss body with a satin amber finish on its neck, and it also incorporates Hipshot Ultralight tuning machines with a housing made of aircraft-grade aluminum. This design choice reduces the weight in the headstock by 2-3 ounces, making it even a touch lighter.
