Reverend PA1 Pete Anderson Signature. The Reverend PA1 was designed by Pete and Joe Naylor of Reverend Guitars. He went through about 4 prototypes to get it right.
For pickups he’s using a set of custom wound P90’s from the Seymour Duncan Custom Shop. Seymour and MJ have been making pickups for Pete for years now. The un-official name for the current pickup is the “Pete 90”. They’ve also made an awesome sounding PAF for him as well – “The PeteBucker”.
