    Post 4!

    I'll have to list my collection, pictures pending:

    Commando #332 with 2 poster strat style trem
    Hipshot Slingshot Gold (1st with a hipshot?)
    Hotshot #31
    Rumblefish #40 (survived being lost by fedex and unceremoniously dropped
    R5L #40
    Cowboy tolex Hellhound combo with matching 1x12 ext cab
    Cowboy tolex Hellhound head with matching 4x10 cab
    DT2.

    Dustin's been around, he's bought from me and I've bought from him. He's been playing to win to get the ultimate metal top collection. It is pretty awesome; I stopped trying to compete with him on the 'bay.

    I think Dustin posted those in the other Reverend thread- the one that was 400+ pages long.

    Your Hotshot #31 is actually in the first post of of this new thread, right above the best Reverend guitar ever produced, which happens to be my white and gold EPN Avenger.

    I will get a new pic of my Reverend gear up tonight...

    Joe Naylor - Genius guitar maker.

    These are hands down the best production guitars I've come across. I do not like the imports. Bring 'em back Joe!

    Gotta try to get on the first page... also I am defending the imports. The Jetstream 390 with Wilkenson trem is the best. Buckshot--very cool. But yes, the US models were the bomb--the problem I've had trying to use them in my band is that they don't have enough punch & clarity.

    Yes, as much as I like my Workhorse Slingshot (again!), it doesn't have that solidity and punch that a good solidbody has.

    We might be in the minority on this, but I'm right there with you. I've had 3 USA's and the only one I've kept is my EPN Avenger. You'll have to pry it from my cold, dead hands.

    Oh, I hardly think you're in the minority - here's my EP Avenger. #292 and sweet enough to be the cause of me selling my Fender Strat shortly after acquiring it (though it's most certainly not "the only one I've kept"). :)

    By "minority" I mean that I really dig the single-coil Revs while most of the love seems to go for the P-90's. (Which are singe coils, I know, but you know what I mean.) I'm lukewarm on the Rev. P-90s.

    I think that your #292 is the one I'm holding in the back row of the pic in post #1 here. Hard to see it, but I think that's it.

    Not sure I had it yet when the pic was taken but in any event, I also really dig the Rev regular single coils. Though I did replace the bridge PUP on my Avenger with a Harmonic Design STP for more bite (sounds especially fine in position 2) and then "recycled" it (with a replacement black cover) as the middle PUP in my S-Hitman.

    Am I the only one that finds those bears a little creepy?

    I like both the USAs and the imports, but personally I think the imports have gotten too pricey to consider new. I would rather have a used U.S. instrument then a new import.

    Nope.

    :agree but used imports can be had for a song and I am still a huge fan of the JS390 with the trem.
