I know this is low res, but it’s faster than using the mini-DV process.

I used Snake Oil strings to restring this, so whoever buys the Flatroc should feel pretty darn lucky—those are expensive strings.

Reverend Flatroc | Rock Orange

This particular Flatroc has a chambered mahogany body with a 5mm spruce top. Reverend recently switched to solid korina on the solid body models. Some basic specs are Fender scale length, maple neck with rosewood fretboard, Tune-O-Matic bridge, and two Revtron pickups.

I think the Revtrons are under rated, or at least under appreciated. There’s a lot of talk about Reverend P90s and how great they are, etc, and they are, but the Revtrons are just as great. I hear them as a kind of Gretsch/Rickenbacker hybrid, but maintaining their own identity as well. They put out a crisp, ringing clean without being too cutting or harsh, but have the ability to get aggressive and crunchy if you want. Being mini humbuckers they have the powerful edge of a regular HB without the muddiness. With the Bass Contour Control you have added flexibility in the ringing/chiming/crunching department. Hooray for versatility!

Anyway, the best thing to do would be to show up and play it yourself. That way you’ll be so enamored of it that you’ll plunk down some cash and take it home. I only want the best for you, so I think that’s what should happen. $499 list, and a bargain at that price.
