I love Gibson style basses, but don;t really like Gibsons (if that makes sense). There are other offerings such as the Warwick Star that are great, but there are things that put this Reverend far above other semi hollow basses on the market. First and foremost, these basses are easy to work on. Anyone who plays hollows can attest that jack issues and wiring issues are common. They are also typically difficult to work work on. That is not the case with the Dub King. It is as easy as working on a P bass. It is also the only semi holow bass of which I know that has a string-thru option and a lockdown bridge. The build quality is flawless and the design is common-sense oriented. These basses make a great addition to any collection.
