Reverend Double Agent OG
The Double Agent OG (Original Guitar) is back! It has the same Humbucker/P90 pickups, but on a single cutaway body, with a tuneomatic bridge and stop tail. Now, hardtail fans can switch seamlessly from powerful to cool. And when the pickups are combined, the tone is a unique depth-meets-twang unlike anything else.
We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.
ROASTED MAPLE NECK
Roasted Maple is heat treated at over 300° F 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!
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.
This passive bass roll-off is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. It can make a humbucker sound like a single-coil, or give a P-90 that classic twang. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!
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.
Every Reverend is hand initialed and serial numbered on the back of the headstock by one of our highly skilled technicians who sets up, inspects, and tests every instrument.
CUSTOM DOME KNOBS
Our proprietary knobs feature a lower profile which is less likely to be accidentally hit by the player’s hand, and the white dot lets you easily see where your knob rotation is set.
We use “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
Our 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.
SIX-BOLT NECK PLATE
Two extra bolts increase mounting pressure of the neck by fifty percent. This makes a stronger neck connection, which improves sustain, tuning stability, and neck alignment.
ANGLED NECK HEEL
All Reverend solidbody 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
Our 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!
We use Alpha control pots with a +-10% rating. While a typical pot is +-20%, our 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
We use caps with a +-10% rating, while a typical cap is +-20%. Our 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.

I’m a bedroom player with three guitars, one Ibanez RG390GX, a G&L Tribute S500, and now this.
I got the RG about 17 years ago, but never sticked to playing until now. I’ve been hooked for about a year now, so still a lot to learn.
Beautiful finish and shape
Very comfortable neck
Good pickups and bass/treble control
Nicely cut nut
One fret is a hair high – “easy” fix
A tiny mark in the middle of the neck
Low E string intonation is almost perfect, but the saddle is maxed out which gives no extra room for adjustment (-1 star)
The satin roasted maple neck is a dream to play on. Absolutely beautiful. It had a very small mark (only visual) in the middle of the back of the neck. but nothing to worry about nor something you can feel.
The finish on the guitar body is perfect in a beautiful metallic green. The shape is really cool, and it’s comfortable in your lap, both sitting and standing
All Reverend guitars are checked and set up in their USA office after production in Indonesia(?). I always play around with the setup myself to learn as much as possible though. Also, since I live in Norway, the difference in climate will affect the setup.
The 10th or 11th fret is a hair higher than the rest, resulting in some fretbuzz on the low E when fretting the 9th and 10th fret. Not extremely bad though. The nut seems to have been cut perfectly.
Guitar action: Very slight relief on neck. 12th fret string height:
2 mm on low E. 1.5 mm on high E
The intonation was good, but I’ve had to max out the range on the low E saddle, and it’s still juuust a hair flat. If I could reverse the low E saddle only, it would have gotten a bit more room for adjustment (maybe I can?). It seems like the low side of the bridge have been drilled a mm or two too far away from the neck though.
Both pickups sound very good, and the bass and treble knobs are really helpful in shaping the tone you want. My S500 also has this “PTB” control and I don’t understand why not all guitars have these. It’s genious!
