my second guitar in 13 years was a Reverend. A big assed semi-hollow MantaRay. I bought it local, totally on a whim and I really liked it. But, I started gassing hard for other stuff and thought I wasn't a humbucker guy... I was wrong ;( So, I have a bevy of single coil style guitars (a couple in the emporium right now... wink, wink) and I'm thinking about getting another Reverend. The things I didn't like about the MantaRay were that it was really large, I didn't necessarily NEED a semi-hollow (but it sounded great), the fingerboard was a little tight/hard for me. The pups were their PAF copy? which rocked, but I believe they also make a model with another style of humbucker pup as well (Revtron)? The MantaRay was $600, I need to come in lower than that this time around. I dig tele-esque style body's vs. LP style and wondering about the Flatroc or Gil Paris models, but these might be too much. Anyone with experience with these please let me know. Playing through a cube 60 now but hope to upgrade to a nice tube amp soon.
