    I believe that's a set neck, not a neck through.

    You are right. Same as the Thundergun.

    I'd like to hear some sound clips. But if Me'shell is involved in the design, I'm pretty sure it's gonna be a killer instrument.

    That is the Carvin SB/Brubaker Brute bridge.

    I like it. A lot. The fact that it's Meshell's signature makes it a lotlotlot cooler for me. But besides the Meshell vibe, I dig it.

    I played one at the NAMM show and let me tell you it sounded GREAT! Solid fundamental tones with the blade pick-up and with the 2 band EQ it can deliver a wide variety of usable tones. Bravo to Reverend they really are making some fine Bass guitars.

    Nice. Reversed tuners, not so much. Dig the overall look though.

    EQ? really? cool! I was under the impression that it was passive.

    She used to play her Celinder and '63 Fender a lot, but the last few times I saw her play she used a Danelectro.

    The reversed headstock mirrors the longer upper horn pretty well in my opinion. The stacked knobs may be a bit of a pain to use live... overall it looks an exciting bass!

    It is passive, it's a stacked volume/tone knob. Just regular Pbass controls but in a stacked pot. Way cool idea, IMHO.

    Lookin at picking one up for kicks (even though I already own a solid example of a passive Pbass) it's just so cool.

    Re: reverse headstock...
    I owned one reverse headstock bass before, with a tilt-back design (like this Rev), and let me tell u honestly it makes the low E feel and sound thunderous. Not sure if it's just the extra physics involved (or maybe a somewhat similar mind trick to a physical difference between top-load/string-thru bridge?) whatever I don't know but as silly as they can look I believe they do feel good

    Once these hit the used market for a decent price it'll be hard for me to turn it down
