Reverend has unveiled the Z-One, the third electric guitar it's designed with Smashing Pumpkins frontman Billy Corgan.

Inspired by the Pumpkins' heavier material, the Z-One boasts a chambered alder body with a deep cutaway for easy upper-fret access, (as opposed the original Corgan signature Reverend's korina (opens in new tab) build) and a roasted maple neck and fretboard with 22 frets.

Sounds on the guitar come by way of a pair of Railhammer Z-One pickups – each of which boast custom artwork etched into their covers – tailored to have a "fat" midrange and a smooth top end.

These are controlled by volume, tone, and Bass Contour controls, along with a three-way pickup selector.

As for hardware, there's a Boneite nut, and – just as can be found on Corgan's other Reverend signatures – Reverend pin-lock tuners and a hardtail, string-thru body bridge.

The Reverend Billy Corgan Z-One guitar is available now – in Metallic Silver Freeze and Midnight Black finishes – for $1,799. A two-toned Teardrop case is available separately.
