Excellent clarity with dynamics plus a thick tone, the BC-1 is a highly sought guitar. The Reverend Billy Corgan Signature BC-1 has a raised center ridge and strategic chambers under the pickguard to add resonance and reduce weight. The string-thru body bridge provides maximum sustain and a percussive attack. The BC-1 is loaded with Railhammer Billy Corgan Signature Pickups, part of Railhammers new Humcutter series. The body is topped with a segmented aluminum pickguard for a modern, yet timeless look.
Railhammer Billy Corgan Signature Pickups
Part of Railhammers new Humcutter Series developed with Billy Corgan to capture the clarity and dynamics of a P90, but with the thick tone of a low-noise humbucker.
Strategic chambers under the pickguard add resonance and reduce weight.
Low Profile Knobs
The classic low profile shape, but rendered in metal with a chrome finish.
String-Thru Body Bridge
For maximum sustain and a percussive attack.
This passive bass roll-off is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. 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. Also, the posts are custom height, eliminating the need for a second string tree.
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.
We use a graphite impregnated nut on all Reverend instruments. Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability.
