Review: Reverend Signature Mike Watt Wattplower Bass

I gotta be straight up — I’m not the biggest fan of signature basses. I often find that these instruments have been tweaked aesthetically or electronically so much toward one individual’s preference, they are a bit useless in most contexts. Take the Gene Simmons Axe bass, for example. Unless you’re going onstage with your fellow face-painted rock & roll warriors spewing blood and fire, you’ll just look and sound out of place (but, hey, you’re ready to chop wood when the gig ends). I’ve also seen signature basses that are far too expensive for anyone but a collector; I once reviewed a signature bass that cost over $14,000. Over the years, however, I’ve found some notable exceptions. For example, I am a proud owner of a 1995 Fender Roscoe Beck V, which I will never part with, and the Sire Marcus Miller basses are amazing as well. Both of these examples follow my three key rules when it comes to designing signature basses: make the instrument friendly to a wide variety of styles, don’t go overboard on the “signature” part regarding looks, and keep it affordable to players on a modest budget. Reverend’s Mike Watt Signature bass, the Wattplower, delivers in two of these areas (subtle signature looks and affordability), but, in this case, I don’t mind that it has a specific tone, since its aggressive sound casts a wide-enough net within rock genres.

If you aren’t familiar with Mike Watt, stop reading and spend a good hour on Spotify familiarizing yourself with his music. Start with the Minutemen records, visit some Firehose and the Stooges, and then dig into Mike’s solo works — he is one prolific player. Once you’ve done that, come back and read on.

When I first went play the bass, I noticed that due to the instrument’s shape, the shoulder strap has to connect to the back of the neck joint. Usually I don’t dig this type of setup, as it often makes the bass feel imbalanced, but that didn’t occur here. Everything felt perfectly balanced. If you haven’t played a short-scale instrument, you might think that the shorter neck makes it feel weird, but I haven’t found that to be the case. I own a Danelectro ’58 Longhorn reissue, and I never feel awkward when switching between it and my Fender basses. It’s different, for sure, but not difficult to adjust to at all. The same was true with the Mike Watt bass — I took right to it.

The distinctive tone of this instrument definitely pays tribute to Mike’s sound and approach; it’s got growl for miles. No matter how I set the tone knob or where I played in relationship to the pickups, the growl spoke loudly and with attitude. That’s by design, for sure. You’ve got a volume and tone knob, and that’s it. Someone wanting something more subtle or versatile in tone might be unhappy — but then who would be considering this bass who wasn’t into the ethos of its signature artist and the genre in which he performs? As such, I loved it. It begs you to play certain styles of music over others, which was just fine with me. I tried it out on some punk tunes, but I also found it fit well within one of my favorite genres of all time: ’90s grunge.

The Reverend’s pickups are custom, and they sound like it. I discovered that the sweet spot for me was directly over the pickup, as this gave me an even blend of a bass-forward, deep-throated tone combined with an articulation that would cut through the most guitar-heavy of mixes. If I played back by the bridge, like I do on my Jazz Basses, the tone was too lightweight; too much in front of the pickup resulted in a loss of that aggressive articulation I was digging. Through it all, the bass growled no matter the position, whether I played with fingers or with a pick.

The bass proved so inspiring to play, I kept it out for a number of days and continued to try it out in various genres. Again, it’s not ideal for more mellow tunes without some thoughtful amp adjustments, but I didn’t mind that. In the end, the bass seemed well suited for gigs that demand an in-your-face aggressive tone on the low end. Also, when playing it, I easily forgot it was a short-scale instrument. That’s how a short-scale bass should be: I don’t want to be constantly thinking about its scale length.

The best compliment I can give this instrument is that when I put it back in its case (which is also custom and quite lovely) for shipping back to Reverend, I was a bit sad. While I have a host of nice basses, I have nothing like this, and that’s saying something. Like all well-designed instruments, this one inspires you to explore and test its character through the music you enjoy. So, if you play rock of any style, I encourage you to find a Mike Watt signature Reverend bass in a store near you and explore until you find some new paths in your music.

Pros Well balanced, lightweight, beautiful design; awesome bottom-heavy, growling tone

Cons Some might object that it does not offer a wide variety of tones, but, as I point out below, that is not negative in this context

Reverend Triad
reverendguitars.com


Conventional thought would deem the designs of Fender and Gibson to be the standard bearers of guitars and basses. There are, however, builders that buck the norms with adventurous shapes while creating looks that hint at yesteryear. By applying function and form to their Jetsons-esque style, Reverend is among those companies, and their approach is exemplified in the recently released Triad bass.

Space-ly Shapes
Fans of Reverend basses will recognize the 34"-scale Triad’s body shape, which arguably takes stylistic influences from 1950s cars and sci-fi movies. Our test instrument’s korina body was sprayed in a funky purple burst and framed with white binding, but the Triad is also available in burnt brick or metallic alpine finishes as well.

The Triad’s 5-piece roasted maple and walnut neck has a satin amber finish that conveys a look and feel similar to older basses. The 6-bolt neck is capped with a fretboard made of pau ferro, which is an underrated fretboard wood, but its warmth and snappy attack make it a great choice for bass guitars. Extra points go to the use of pearloid inlays, which adds some vintage style.

The electronics reveal the source of the Triad’s name. Three proprietary Jazz Bomb pickups are manipulated by a 5-position switch, which rests above the pair of volume and tone knobs. Reverend didn’t skimp on hardware, and secondary features include Hipshot Ultralite tuners, a Boneite synthetic-bone nut, a Pure Tone jack, and a lock-down bridge.

Reverential Tones
It’s one thing to pull a bass out of its case that doesn’t feel like a boat anchor, but it’s even better to play a bass that balances exceptionally well. Our test instrument weighed in at about 8 1/2 pounds and held its position whether placed on the thigh or strapped around the shoulder. Kudos to Reverend for designing a shape that offers more than just cool looks.

Thanks to its well-balanced nature, I was able to explore the Triad’s fretboard with ease. The prominent cutaway of the lower horn provided total access to the upper portions of the neck, without me having to make any adjustments to my left-hand technique. Though I typically prefer a flatter neck shape, the Triad’s medium oval profile felt smooth, fast, and comfortable.

I found this setting to be particularly receptive to the tone knob, providing just the right amount of finger attack or wooly warmth when desired.

I explored the Triad’s tones through a Bergantino rig, comprised of a B|Amp head and HD112 cabinet. I have a deep affinity for Jazz-style instruments, so the trio of Jazz Bomb pickups had piqued my excitement prior to plugging in. I was a tad disappointed to discover that Reverend’s latest isn’t the Jazz bass on steroids its layout implies. That said, this bass still revealed timbres that were totally badass.

Pushing the pickup selector completely forward, toward the neck, solos the neck pickup, and it gave me a tone rife with lows and midrange. To my ears, it could be described as a Gibson EB-esque sound with a piano-like clang. Dialing the tone knob down turned this setting into a dub machine.

Moving the selector one position to the right engages the neck and middle pickup, which produced a tighter tone with pronounced high mids. Players that lean towards P/J pickup configurations may find their sweet spot with the second setting.

The third (center) position solos the middle pickup, and I was treated to growls with gut-punching midrange. I also found this setting to be particularly receptive to the tone knob, which provided just the right amount of finger attack or wooly warmth when desired. “Entwistle mode” would be a fitting descriptor.

If you’re a G&L fan, the fourth position’s tone has qualities reminiscent of the company’s popular L-series basses. Pointed mids, tight lows, and a slight growl were prevalent with each pull of the strings. I preferred cutting the tone knob, which mellowed the edginess and added a slight low-mid bump—excellent for pumping, 16th-note lines. The closest the Triad came to a “J-style sound” was through the selector’s far-right position, which solos the bridge pickup and provides barks abundant enough to make Jaco disciples happy.

I had the opportunity to take the Triad to a blues jam, where its sonic characteristics made a positive impression. Each note projected cleanly, with warm, authoritative tones that sat nicely in the mix. Notably, the output was impressively consistent at every position, with no pesky hum. Whether it was a ballad, shuffle, or funky groove that night, the Triad’s array of tonal options provided the ideal timbres.

The Verdict
Reverend’s latest bass is a fun instrument. Its comfortable design offers excellent playability and great balance, ideal for marathon performances. Thanks to all its versatile voices, the Triad can be used for many musical styles, making it a choice go-to bass for both stage and session work. It also just looks freaking cool. If you’re hunting for a bass that can deliver vintage tones with unconventional style, the Reverend Triad shows that good things do come in threes.

Reverend BASS For Sale?

If you are thinking about selling your Rumblefish, or any other USA Reverend Guitar, Bass, or Amp, please send me an E-MAIL as I am always interested in buying USA Reverends (if the wife will allow!) But if not, I might be able to steer you in the directions of someone who does, or expand your guitar's exposure by listing it here on the RevFan.com site (for Free!)

RUM - RPJ - RXL - R5L - BH5

If you made it to the page from an outside link, I want to welcome you to the Reverend Fanatic Website. I encourage you to take a look around at the rest of the website as there is plenty of information on the Reverend Musical Instruments manufactured in the USA between 1997 and 2006.

Reverend RumblefishThe family of Reverend Basses come in several different varieties of 4 and 5 String instruments. Reverend discontinued Bass Production along with all of their USA instrument production in 2006.

The first Reverend Bass was a Jet Black JJ serial numbered 00347. On April 4, 2006 Reverend made their last Bass, a Red Rockhide 5 String with serial number 4865.

All Reverend Basses have the same sequential serial numbers that the guitars have. The first 100 basses, however, are marked with a bass number as well. So the first bass has overall Reverend serial number 00347 and "Bass #1". Along with the Serial Numbers, there are the initials of the person who set up the Guitar or Bass. Early models may have Joe Naylor's Initials (JFN) while the later ones tend to have Zack Green's Initials (ZSG). If an instrument has been returned to Reverend for repair, modification, or "conversion" to another type, there normally seems to be the addition of Joe Naylor's Signature.

USA BASS NECKS

This information comes from the Reverend Archives Page. It is interesting to note that some of the last Basses made were built with the early style skunk striped necks. That being said, here is a general guide to Reverend Bass Necks.

    Earlier 4-String Bass Necks
  • - Dark walnut "skunk stripe" on back of neck.
  • - Headstock decal says "Reverend" with no "USA". Note: factory repaired or factory refinished headstocks might say "Reverend USA".

  • Later 4-String Bass Necks
  • - NO dark walnut "skunk stripe" on back of neck. NO stripe indicates the neck has a 1/2 inch square aluminum reinforcement channel.
  • - Headstock decal says "Reverend" with no "USA". Note: factory repaired, factory refinished, or very late headstocks might say "Reverend USA".

  • 5-String Bass Necks
  • - 5-String necks NEVER had the dark walnut "skunk stripe" on back of neck. All 5-Strings had the 1/2 inch square aluminum reinforcement channel.
  • - Headstock decal says "Reverend" with no "USA". Note: factory repaired, factory refinished, or very late headstocks might say "Reverend USA".


Rumblefish - 418 Instruments

RumblefishThe first bass produced by Reverend is known as the "Rumblefish". It is of the Fender style with two jazz pickups. The controls are the standard two volume, and a master tone control.

The tone has been described as "very tight, and punches through with clarity and warmth, much like a true vintage J-bass". The tone control allows you to dial out the bridge pick-up to emulate the ballsy tone of a P-bass or dial in the bridge, cut the neck a bit to give the bass a very Jaco-esque honk.

Another reviewer at Bass Gear Review sums it up by saying, "In all, a ballsy, multi-faceted tone monster. Very light weight with a fast, playable vintage-feel neck."

The great thing about all of the Reverend Basses is that the construction materials and methods lead to a very light and playable bass.

As stated above, the first Rumblefish was 00347, but the last one was sn 04495, and left the factory with an Aged White phenolic finish with a maple neck.

Collecting Notes
The most common finish to find on a Rumblefish is Aged White, in which there are 105 instruments. Black follows closely with 94 instruments made. Other phenolic colors in significant numbers are; Turquoise (49), Hunter Green (45), Sky Blue (16), and Navy and Blood Red, both with 15 instruments.

Metal Finish
Bug Eye Black Chrome leads the pack of metal finishes with 12. Following are Ridged Aluminum and Lava Swirl (Both with 6), Engine Turned Aluminum (4) and a Diamond Plate. In Brushed Aluminum, there are 3 in Moroccan Gold and one in Dragonfly Green.

Faux Wood Finish
Not many Rumblefish are found in the Faux Wood finishes. The most common is Quilted Mahogany with 5. Following that are Birdseye Maple (4), Flamed Maple (3), Red Mahogany (2), and one in Black Wood

One of a Kind finishes
There are just a few "one of" finishes that have not already been mentioned. These are 69 Lime Green, 57 Yellow, and Fire Engine Red.

NOTES
There are two Rumblefish that have "BLANK" in the color code area. These are sn's 01494 and 04466, if you have them, or know what they are, please send me an e-mail so we can get the archives updated.

Maple necks were ordered on 20% of the Rumblefish (85).

There are 3 Rumblefish noted as being custom, but only one, sn 00666 has any indication of what is "custom"; in this case, its a mahogany neck. Two instruments are noted as being returned for string-through upgrade, and two are listed as having their Pick-ups changed.

Rumblefish XL - 141 Instruments

Rumblefish XLThe Rumblefish XL is similar to the regular Rumblefish, except that the "XL" version has a volume pot, a tone pot and a 3-way mini-toggle switch that allows the 2 passive Jazz Bass style pickups to run in parallel/single-coil/series. It is capable of a variety of different sounds thanks to the parallel/single coil/series mini-toggle switch. It sounds rich and warm in all settings.

Reviewers describe the XL as, "like a Jazz Bass with a little more tonal flexibility and a much lighter body. The neck is as good as any out there and better than 90% of them; it feels like a "broken in" 60's Jazz Bass neck." To my ear, it has a little more of the low end punch than the VVT Rumblefish.

The first RXL out of the shop was sn 00709, with a black phenolic body and gold pick guard. The last made was sn 04864 made in April 2006, and was in phenolic Indigo. I should note that, for all intents and purposes, RXL production ended in October of 2003.

Collecting Notes
Maple Necks were ordered on 33 of the 141 RXLs (23%).

The most common finishes RXLs are Aged White and Jet Black, both with 23 instruments. No other phenolic finish makes it into double digits.

Metal Finish
Bug Eye Black Chrome is way out in front with 20 instruments made. The other Specialty Finishes made were Lava Swirl (6) an Ridged Aluminum (5) and one Engine Turned Aluminum. Interestingly, there is one RXL made from the same "Hammered Gold" finish as the NAMM guitars were made in, sn 03030-2 (Note the -2 was used by Reverend to denote a "factory second", usually some blemish to the finish/neck).

Brushed Aluminum
Lake Superior Blue has the most with 11 Basses. Moroccan Gold follows with 7 and right behind is Dragonfly Green with 6. Space Race Silver joins the RXL group with 4 instruments made.

Faux Wood
Only one Faux Wood finish, sn 01585 in Quilted Mahogany.

One of a Kind Finishes
RXL "one-ofs" not already mentioned are; Hunter Green, Indigo, and Coalmine Black Rockhide.

Rumblefish PJ - 106 Instruments

Rumblefish RPJIn August of 2003, Reverend announced the USA-made Rumblefish PJ bass guitar featuring Reverend J-style bridge pickup/P-style neck pickup, volume for each pickup and master tone control. The official release stated that: The chambered body is available in Classic Solid, Wood Look, and Brushed Aluminum finishes. Options include maple fingerboard, and two-tone teardrop case.

One reviewer at TalkBass describes his experience with the Rumblefish PJ: "I tried one that had one of my personal favorite pickup configurations: the ol' PJ. I plugged it in and was absolutely blown away by it's tone. For a passive-electronic bass, it has a surprising amount of bass in its tone, but that's counteracted by the shimmering clarity of the upper registers. There are some really handy tonal options, too: Roll the J pickup off and you've got yourself the balls and booty of a P bass, or, if you need to bust out some Rush, roll off the P bass pickup and you'll get... well, it's not a J bass sound, but it's definitely half of it! The best part about the Rumblefish, though, is the tone when both pickups are at full volume. The tone seems to combine the best of both worlds, with the P pickup's balls and the J's bite".

The Prototype RPJ was a custom, and it came in white with a plexiglas pickguard that allowed you to see into the electronics. This bass was built in August of 2001, almost 2 years before significant RPJ production began. The last to leave the factory was an Indigo RPJ, sn04468, which left the factory on the 28th of October, 2005.

Collecting Notes
About 20% of RPJs were ordered with a Maple Neck.
Jet Black and Moroccan Gold are tied for the most numerous RPJs at 18 each. No other colors make it into double digits, but Safety Orange comes close with 9, followed by 8 in Aged Yellow.

Metal Finish
In the Specialty Metal Finish, there are 6 in Lava Swirl, Bug Eye Black Chrome follows with 3, and there is there is a lone Engine Turned Aluminum.

Brushed Aluminum
Moroccan Gold has the top spot (18), and Lake Superior Blue has 10, but 4 of those have a Sand Blasted Racing Stripe. Four Dragonfly Greens are present, and there is one Space Race Silver and one Smoked Chrome, both have Sand Blasted Racing Stripe. The Smoked Chrome w/Stripe is noted as being the first Sand Blasted Bass instrument (See photo above).

Faux Wood
There are not a lot of faux wood finished RPJs. Red Mahogany has the most with 9, followed by four in Flamed Maple, and only one in "Blackwood".

One of a Kind
"One-ofs" not already mentioned include: Deep Sea Teal, Fireball Red, and Indigo.

Rumblefish R5L (289)

Rumblefish R5L5-string with 35 inch scale, two Reverend J-style pickups, 3-position voicing switch (parallel, single coil, series), volume and tone controls. Simple yet versatile, with ultra-deep piano-like clarity and resonance. The comfortable neck profile and tight B string make for a modern classic. Approx. 9 lbs.

A reviewer relates his impression of the 5L that he first saw at NAMM in 2000: "The neck is a touch slimmer that I would like, but very well finished and comfortable. The semi hollow construction makes it nice and light on the shoulder. It was the full humbucking function of the 2 Jazz bass style pickups that I liked the most, as it provided a really fat low end, especially on the low B string".

Collecting Notes
The R5Ls were made from January of 1999 through April of 2006. The first being a black phenolic sn 00581, and the last being a Western Red Rockhide, sn 04865. As with the rest of the Reverend guitar and bass line, about 20% were made with a Maple Necks.

Jet Black is by far the most numerous R5L, with 74 instruments in that color. The next on the list is kind of surprising, "Navy" with 43. Aged White is close behind at 40 instruments, with Turquoise and Sky blue both having 18.

Metal Finish
The most common of the Special Metal Finishes is Engine Turned Aluminum (8). Right behind is Bug Eye Black Chrome (7), Lava Swirl (6) and Ridged Aluminum (3).

Brushed Aluminum
There are 8 in Lake Superior Blue (one of thse has the Sand Blasted Racing Stripe), 3 Dragonfly Greens, and 2 in Moroccan Gold. There is one in Smoked Chrome and that has the Racing Stripe as well. Space Race Silver makes the list with just one instrument in that color.

Faux Wood Finish
Birdseye Maple is the most numerous Faux wood with 5 instruments. Quilted Faux Mahogany, Blackwood, and Bluewood are all tied with 4 instruments of each color. Brown Ash comes next with 3 instruments, and there are one each of Red Mahogany and Flame Maple.

One of a Kinds
Besides the ones mentioned above, there is one Lime Green, and one Aged Yellow.

Brad Houser (BH5)

Brad Houser BassThe prototype Brad Houser 5 String (Black Phenolic, sn 01719) was made sometime 2000, but production did not get rolling until April of 2001. The last BH5 to leave the factory did so as Dragonfly Green, sn 04156, in March of 2005.

The Brad Houser represented the high end of Reverend Bass offerings and has been praised by musicians for its retro vibe but sound all of its own.

The Reverend Website listed the features as:

  • Designed with Brad Houser (Critter's Buggin, New Bohemians, Bass Player mag's 10 Young Guns To Watch) for the ultimate in versatility and performance!
  • 5-string with 35 inch scale, two black Reverend humbucker pickups, 3-position voicing switch (parallel, single coil, series) for each pickup, volume for each pickup, master tone control, Hipshot bridge with adjustable spacing, Hipshot Ultralite tuning keys, and wide neck (3 inch at 22nd fret)
  • Comes standard with Black Pearl Pickguard on the following body colors: Sky Blue, '57 Turquoise, Nave Blue, Deep Purple, and Jet Black.

Bass Player Magazine's review by E. E Bradman, the bass is praised as:
"Overall, the bass offered no stunning clarity or bright, modern tone, but thanks to the Reverend circuitry and semi-hollow design, it had a strong sound all its own. We recommend it to low-end lovers looking for a versatile 5 that evokes passive hollow- and semi-hollowbodies of the past. The Houser’s looks will always stand out, but its sound and price will definitely turn heads—and with flats, it’ll move a dance floor, too."


Collecting Notes

There were only 79 BH5's made and the most common color is Black, in which there are 14 instruments. Red Mahogany is the second most common color, but even so there are only 12 instruments in that finish. No other finshes makes it in to double digits, though there were four Sky Blue and two in Aged Yellow.

Metal Finishes
The most common metal finish is Moroccan Gold, with 10 instruments, though one is listed as having a black back. Lava Swirl comes in close behind with 9 instruments. Bug Eye is right behind with 8. Fans of the Engine Turned Aluminum can sleep a little easier as there are 3 of those out there... somewhere. There are three Space Race Silver BH5s and two in Lake Superior Blue burshed aluminum. The last BH5 made, in Dragonfly Green noted above, is the only one in that color.

Faux Wood Finish
Along with the 12 Red Mahoganies, there were four in Flamed Maple. There was one in Blue Wood, and one in Green Wood as well.

One of a Kind
There are a few one-ofs that are not already mentioned. There are single instruments in Blood Red, Safety Orange, Hunter Green, "Houser Purple" and Ultra Marine.

If you would like to add anything, or correct anything, please feel free to send me an e-mail and I will try to get it updated as soon as I can.
