After years of capo-ing at the third fret, Billy Corgan suggested that Reverend make an electric Terz - a 19th century instrument tuned to a minor third G-C-F-A#-D-G. The result was the Reverend Billy Corgan Signature Terz: a punchy, shimmering guitar that is rich in overtones, perfect for adding color accents or driving rhythm parts that spice up a tune. Reverend Guitars is the first company to create an electric version as a production model. The 21.5" short scale neck allows this guitar be tuned high while keeping the tension regular. The body, the same as the standard Reverend Billy Corgan Signature Model, has been loaded with a single Railhammer Billy Corgan Pickup. A unique and inspiring tool for stage or studio that will add a fresh tonal texture to any composition.

Railhammer Pickups
Rails under the wound strings for tight lows. Poles under the plain strings for fat highs. This revolutionary design from Reverend founder Joe Naylor delivers exceptional clarity and punch, that will get you heard loud and clear!

Roasted Maple Neck
Roasted Maple is heat treated at over 300 degrees Fahrenheit to remove sugars, moisture, and impurities. This maple is lighter, more stable, and has a beautiful caramel color. The result is an exceptional maple neck that will require less seasonal adjustment, and boasts a rich vintage look!

String-Thru Body Bridge
String-thru body design and stainless-steel saddles for a percussive attack that provides maximum sustain and a ringing, solid tone.

Low-Profile Knobs / Bass Contour
All the controls feature the classic low-profile knob shape, rendered in a chrome finish. The passive Bass Contour is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!

Pin-Lock Tuners
A thumbwheel under the tuner pushes a steel pin up through the post, locking the string in place for exceptional tuning stability and super-fast string changes.

Initialed Headstock
Every Reverend is hand initialed on the back of the headstock by Zack Green, the highly skilled technician who sets up, inspects, and tests every instrument.

Chambered Korina Body
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium lightweight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. It is a key factor to producing Reverend's lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics. On the BC-1 there are strategic chambers under the pickguard to add even more resonance and reduce weight.

Boneite Nut
Reverend uses "Boneite", a synthetic bone nut that is more consistent than natural bone, on all Reverend instruments. It reduces friction, allowing the strings to slide through the nut slots smoothly, improving tuning stability.

Triple-Tree String Tree
This patent-pending string tree has an extended bar to hold down three strings at a time with just one tree, eliminating G string buzz in the nut slot.

Dual-Action Truss Rod
Reverend's dual action rod adjusts in both directions, allowing back bow or forward bow. This assures correct adjustment range is possible regardless of string tension, extreme climate conditions, or the effects of long-term aging. It's also located at the headstock for easy access.

Angled Neck Heel
All Reverend solid body guitars in the Bolt-On series feature a low profile, angled neck heel. This improves comfort and hand access when you're reaching for those high notes!

Custom Jack Plate
Reverend's proprietary jack plate features four mounting screws, instead of two. The extra screws prevent the plate from tearing out of the body. Made of steel for durability, the laser etched logo adds an extra touch of class!

Pure Tone Jack
All Reverends use an upgraded jack by Pure Tone Technologies. A standard jack has single contacts, but the Pure Tone jack has dual contacts for improved grip, audio signal and reliability. The most dependable guitar jack available.

Treble Bleed Circuit
All Reverend guitars have a treble bleed circuit, preserving the treble when you roll back the volume control. When you roll back a standard volume control, the tone loses treble and becomes dull sounding. Now you can turn down and still sound great!

10% Pots
Reverend uses Alpha control pots with a +/- 10% rating. While a typical pot is +/-20%, these pots are built to tighter specifications, making them more consistent. Typically used in expensive boutique guitars, but standard issue in all Reverends.

10% Poly Caps
Reverend uses caps with a +/-10% rating, while a typical cap is +/-20%. These caps are made to tighter specifications, so they're more consistent. Made of polyester, they're also longer lasting, and less affected by temperature than cheaper ceramic caps. Typically used in expensive boutique guitars.
