    Pretty horrendous photos, but the guitar is actually beautiful. You can see a better photo here. https://reiverguitars.co.uk/

    Killer guitars built by a great man.

    YESSS!! Was it the in-stock one? I was seriously considering it.
    I have two Reiver Kompacts and while they're not perfect axes, they're built like goddamn TANKS and sound VERY good: one of mine is super heavy and sounds like a brick acoustically, but plugged-in is a fire-breathing monster of tightness and crunch. The other is much lighter and 'wider' sounding, but I don't like the pickups as much. Both are gorgeous.

    Thank you! I am really happy with it. There was no wait time as Pott points out below.

    :D Yes that is the one! This guy is also on the heavy side. Those proprietary p/u's and the knob that sits inside the tone knob I guess let's you sweep from either the mids or bass and treble. It's still kind of mysterious, but I have it dialed in with a special sound. I couldn't get that on anything else. It seems to pair up with the Kemper really well.

    Thank you! :D It is a once in a lifetime acquisition for this old guy. Feel like I earned. Haha!

    Thank you, sir. :) Yes it's a handsome strapping lad for sure.

    Probably, but I'm not sure. One thing I can tell you though is that this dude is very cool.

    Nice. I thought about getting an Reiver, but I am not looking for a headless at the moment. He also makes ACG basses which are highly acclaimed.
