Based on Reverend's Slingshot guitar, the single-pickup Hotshot
Junior features a high output Rio Grande Bluesbar P-90, volume, tone, and
laminated/beveled black pickguard. The hot rodded P-90 is overwound for increased
gain and low end, making it well suited for high-power blues or raw-edged rock.
Only 40 instruments will be made.
The Hotshot Junior is part of the Workhorse Series, which uses the same patented
High Resonance body construction and Super Vintage neck as found on Reverend's
Premium Series. However, the non-locking diecast tuners and limited options
allow for a lower price point.
Price: $559. Available in '69 Lime Green, Fireball Red, Aged Yellow and Jet
Black. Options include maple fingerboard ($10), Graph Tech saddles ($32), two-tone
teardrop case ($79), or gig bag ($25).
