Default N(used)GD! Reverend Jetstream

This makes for my second Reverend Jetstream and I'm quite pleased! My first was an orange Jetstream 390 (P90s) that I bought used on AGF a few months ago. Then, I traded a strat for a Jetstream HB and it arrived today. Both are excellent guitars and I'm loving the tones. There's enough diversity from the P90s to the HBs that my needs are pretty much covered.

Orange: Jetstream 390
Blue: Jetstream HB

Sweet! Reverends are great guitars with a lot of different platforms from which to choose.... other than the brand name on the headstock, I have no idea why anyone would actually buy a Gibson or Fender anymore...

With so many different brands at such low price points, it doesn't make much sense to me to spend 3 and 4 (or more) times as much for a guitar that, in all likelihood will not be better, if not as good, as the Asian-made electrics I've seen from Reverend, Michael Kelly, Cort and many more...

Nice duo you have there! Enjoy those beauties!!!

Congrats. I believe that’s my old Jetstream HB that I bought from Maury. I traded it earlier this year to a fellow forum member. Beautiful guitar.

Such a versatile guitar with EXCELLENT build quality. Reverends are fantastic guitars that punch way above their price range imho.

Enjoy!

I have to admit I'm certainly not as a big a fan of electrics as I am of acoustics (obviously, as I am on AGF), but these Reverend guitars are quite good!

Nice looking axes! I've never had a Reverend in my hands, but have to say that I like the way they're sort of re-inventing the wheel here...lots of subliminal elements derived from classic designs, but with their own mojo, and a Wilkinson Tremolo to boot...the best two-point trem I've used and they're not cheap, so would never be wasted on a junker.

The Music and Arts where I take lessons has a Sensei RA in stock that is the best guitar in the store. I believe it is a model aimed at a harder rock sound, though, to judge from Reverend's website. Not what I would want. But it sure feels nice.
