Reverend Charger 290 Electric Guitar Review

Tom Quayle Reviews the Reverend Charger 290 Electric Guitar for issue 46 of Guitar Interactive Magazine.

GI 41 saw Reverend Guitars make a huge impression on us with its Billy Corgan Signature – so much so that we got straight back to them, asking for more. Is this small US company starting to challenge the biggest names in the electric guitar business? Tom Quayle seems to think so.

Reverend Guitars was formed by Joe Naylor back in 1997 in East Detroit. Since the early days, the company has grown to produce some excellent guitars such as the Billy Corgan signature model I reviewed very favourably in GI 41. Reverend boasts some unique instruments and an impressive and growing artist list including players from The Black Crowes, Crosby Stills and Nash and Smashing Pumpkins, to name a few. The guitars are surprisingly affordable for distinctive, boutique style instruments and we were keen to try another as fast as we could. Major UK Reverend retailer Merchant City Music ( suggested we a try a P90 equipped model, which they say buyers are currently hot for – so that’s exactly what we did with a newly arrived Charger 290.

Reverend charger sounds great, l like the whole cut out wave on the neck

Random Button Pusher says:

I’ve had a Charger 290 gold top for a number of years and it is really nice to see this review give this Reverend model some very well-deserved attention. As noted, not everyone likes the look, but for me it was love at first sight — and then I played it and was sold in a hot minute.
