That is interesting. Bought my Flatroc in August 2007. Back then, I called Reverend and bought a guitar shipped direct from them. Never had an issue with squeal and I have used it in what I consider driven situations a lot. Seems there can be a thin line between a lively pup and an unmanageable squealer. Maybe you were really gained up or your pups were more microphonic. Goes to show application matters.I've told this story before, but I bought a Flatroc out of Joe Naylor's booth at NAMM 2008 and after I had it for a while, I had to sell it, because it squealed out of control when hit hard with overdrive. Ken explained to me that they had problems with those guitars due to the metal used under the pickups, but that the issue had been rectified.
This was recorded using a Flatroc with drive from a Zendrive:

Those two Reverends are still two of the best as-received setup guitars I have owned. Nothing to do but take em out of the box and play em.
