The Reverend Airwave 12 String is a gamechanger for electric 12 string guitars, providing superlative tone, playability and intonation. It has some very clever design features that set it apart, from the shorter 24 3/4” scale length, to the semi-hollow Korina body with solid Spruce top and outstanding 9A5 pickups. We’ve been blown away by this guitar, as has every customer who’s played it! You can buy online for delivery across the US and beyond. Want a closer look?

REVEREND AIRWAVE 12 STRING
Reverend have produced an outstanding 12 string electric guitar in the Airwave. The shorter 24-3/4″ scale provides lower string tension making it far easier to play than regular 12 strings. A 1-3/4″ nut provides proper spacing for the extra strings. Seriously, this is by far the easiest to play 12 string guitar we have ever come across. It also intonates perfectly thanks to a bridge that is fully intonateable for all 12 strings independently. Chords are always in tune and sound sweeter than you’d expect. The offset double cut semi-hollow body is made from Korina with a solid Spruce top.
In terms of pickups, Reverend’s updated 9A5 Bridge pickup provides raw, classic tone, but is wound for slightly hotter and thicker tone than a vintage P90; perfect for the bridge position. The 9A5 Neck pickup is slightly cleaner than a vintage P90, with clear, open tone. The 3-way switch with volume, tone and bass contour controls allows you to dial in a myriad of sounds all of which are extremely usable.
FIXED BRIDGE, BONEITE NUT & LOCKING TUNERS
12 string guitars can be notoriously difficult to tune. The Reverend Airwave holds its tuning perfectly thanks to the combination of a self lubricating Boneite nut and locking tuners. The standard 6 strings are strung through the body with the octave 6 strings strung through the back of the bridge plate. This gives the Airwave great sustain. We’ve been blown away with how good the Reverend Airwave 12 String is. This is a 12 string guitar that you can play lead on if you wish, it’s that easy to play and it sounds great!
