Reverend has teamed up with guitar ace Greg Koch to create the new Greg Koch Gristle 90 guitar.

Koch's second signature Reverend – following the Greg Koch Gristlemaster – the Gristle 90 features a chambered korina body, three-piece korina neck, and an ebony fingerboard with a 12-inch radius.

Instead of the Gristlemaster's Tele-style pickup layout though, the Gristle 90 features a pair of Fishman P-90s, controlled by volume and tone barrel knobs, a Fishman midrange boost, and three-way selector and push-pull phase switches.

Other features on the guitar include a boneite nut, Reverend Pin-Lock tuners, a dual-action truss rod that's accessible via the guitar's headstock, and a Bigsby B50 tremolo system with a roller bridge.

The Reverend Greg Koch Gristle 90 guitar is available now – in Venetian Gold, Bradford Beach Blue, and Midnight Black finishes – for $2,159. It comes less than a week after Reverend's announcement of its Crosscut and Crosscut W guitars.
