Whether or not you're familiar with the Reverend Jenn Wasner or Matt West Sigantures, you are now - deal with it.
Let's cut the chase and start the shred. Ken from Reverend and Greg Koch bring you these two awesome axes.
The Matt West Signature is a stripped-down rock and roll beast with enough sonic horsepower to take you all the way to Valhalla. As always, it has a korina body, which is really a lovely tonewood. Its warm, punchy midrange response and general roundness are reminiscent of mahogany, but it is livelier and has more going on in the trebles. Reverend also roasts the maple necks, which imparts a bit of woody, vintage-style warmth. It also makes the neck resonate like a wooden tuning fork, and improves stability.
For Jenn Wasner, the guitar is a tool that unlocks her creativity. Though she trained on classical piano pieces as a child, she didn't get into writing songs and making music until she picked up the guitar in her teens. Then, she was off to the races. After honing her craft for years, she started a band called Wye Oak and put out a string of critically-acclaimed records full of delightful folk-inflected songs full of nuggets of pretty noise, new wave electropop flourishes, and smears of shoegazey goodness (do yourself a favor and check out 2011's Civilian if you haven't, Wildwoodians).
