Guitar World and Reverend Guitars have teamed up to offer one lucky reader a brand-new Reverend Bob Balch Signature Guitar!

"The Reverend Bob Balch Signature is not named after some rockin’ preacher," writes Chris Gill in the all-new February 2015 issue of Guitar World. "Rather, it’s a Reverend brand signature model made for guitarist Bob Balch of the iconic Southern California stoner rock band Fu Manchu.

"The model is based on Reverend’s popular Sensei model, but Balch suggested a few mods that make the guitar the equivalent of one of the sweet custom rides often pictured on Fu Manchu album covers. While the guitar is designed to deliver when dealing down and dirty fuzzed-up grooves, it’s as ideal for straight-edge players as much as it’s sure to please those who walk on the wild side."

For Balch's signature model, Reverend added body bevels and routed a tone chamber under the pickguard. Railhammer got to work designing an all-new Bob Balch Signature Railhammer Pickup for the bridge—a brass-covered Railhammer with a ceramic magnet for smooth and clear tone. A Railhammer Chisel in the neck position adds in its cutting upper-mid tone.

The guitar comes in Satin Transparent Brown or Satin Tobacco Burst and has a rosewood neck.
