Reverend Manta Ray HB - Midnight Black w/ ebony fingerboard
Warm and lively, with the acoustic richness and overtones of a full size semi-hollow. The Manta Ray HB is round enough for jazz, but this ray can sting too, with plenty of sustain and attack for rock and blues. The 1-3/4″ thick body is slim and manageable and the flat top has a clean, fresh look. Solid wood construction is featured throughout, with no plywood. The back, sides and center block are produced from one slab of Korina which is routed from the top, and capped with a solid maple flat top. Excellent sustain and attack are coupled with substantial resonance, for a complex and responsive tone. The Reverend Manta Ray HB is also available in Tobacco Burst Flame Maple.
All of our Reverend Manta Ray HB guitars are brand new, factory-fresh, in unplayed condition, and come with Reverend's 1 year warranty. Reverend's unique serial # and the initials of their resident guitar tech who set up and inspected the guitar are found on the back of each headstock. (Hardshell case available separately.)

A medium-light weight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor in producing lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.
This passive bass roll-off is great for tightening up the low end, or re-voicing the pickups. It can make a humbucker sound like a single-coil, or give a P-90 that classic twang. Variable pickup voicing at your fingertips!
A thumbwheel under the tuner pushes a steel pin up through the post, locking the string in place for exceptional tuning stability and super-fast string changes. Also, the posts are custom height, eliminating the need for a second string tree.
Graphite reduces friction, allowing the strings to easily slide through the nut slots, improving tuning stability.
