    I'm definitely excited about the Wattplower II. Hmmm, looks like a 3-position switch, I'll be curious to see exactly how that works. I don't see details on Rev's site yet about that.

    Front is the neck pickup, middle is the front two P pickups, bridge is the middle and bridge P.

    Cool, thanks. I do wonder what an additional position that combines the neck and the two rear P blades would sound like...

    I would think putting in a five way would be pretty straight forward

    Yeah a five way or push pull switch to add the neck pickup to any position would be fairly easy.

  9. The gunmetal mercalli 4 and mulberry mercalli 5 are my faves so far!

    Got my Fatfish from Wildwood, great people to deal with :thumbsup:
     
  17. While we are geeking out about colours I’m gonna chuck up three more pics of my main squeeze, which I ordered the day I first saw the promo pics in 2017:

    33A0D0F3-07E5-40D7-8C19-4C69720CFA71.jpeg F083B656-394B-48EE-83DE-90C1EBABD893.jpeg 46E32E35-789C-418E-8EAB-485495A57043.jpeg

    Interestingly, I am yet to meet another Reverend owner (living in rural New Zealand will do that to you), but all the guitarists I meet and play with know exactly who they are and love what they do. That’s the power of beautiful design.

    I recently picked up a stingray 5, but it still plays second fiddle to my 20th Merc. Nowadays I play 100% of the time on the rear thickbrick. Wonderful tight articulate tone, with A LOT more open and (dare I say Fender-ish) usable mid range than the ray.

  19. Yah - I used to as well, but my current rig is VERY full down low, and it definitely allows the thickbrick to punch in a very full sense.
