Reverend Rick Vito Signature
Designed in collaboration with Grammy-nominated rock and blues artist Rick Vito. Highly noted for his versatile chops, Rick is well-known as a past member of Fleetwood Mac, and has also worked with the likes of The Mick Fleetwood Blues Band, Bonnie Raitt, Jackson Browne, Todd Rundgren, John Fogerty, Bob Seger (that's Rick on the "Like A Rock" slide solo), Roger McGuinn, John Mayall and many others. This art deco masterpiece sounds as good as it looks! The korina construction is warm and resonant, the ebony fretboard adds clarity and a slick feel. The neck P90 has been moved slightly closer to the bridge for extra bite. But the big news is the Dual-Pro bridge pickup. Based on a mid 1960's Supro pickup, it's a hot single coil with a second blade polepiece in addition to the standard screw polepieces. The blade is essential to the unique sound: imagine a P90 meets Tele with humbucker output... fat, raw and clear. And Reverend managed to fit it all into a standard size humbucker cover, a first in the industry.
