Meet the Contender: Reverend Guitars’ flat-top, single-cut set neck guitar. Classically retro, but the offset body and six-in-line headstock give the guitar a modern feel. A strategic chamber under the pickguard increases resonance and reduces weight. The Contender 290 has a pair of 9A5 pickups for fat, raw, and bluesy tones with enough bite to cut through the mix. This guitar effortlessly combines vintage with cutting-edge -- a hallmark of Reverend’s original designs.
