Reverend Guitars - Eastsider Baritone Pete Anderson
T/S Style baritone with a retro feel that delivers the deepest possible twang tone with upgraded features and a tremolo that works great.
Pete Anderson was looking for a baritone with a retro feel that delivers the deepest possible twang tone with upgraded features and a tremolo that works great. We created the Reverend Pete Anderson Eastsider Baritone – a chambered Korina body with a 28 5/8” scale full-length baritone neck. Three Alnico pickups provide extra clarity for low tunings. The Wilkinson WV6 SB Tremolo is a traditional style trem with stamped steel saddles and a steel block for extra twangy tone, adjustable arm tension, and modified mounting holes to improve stability. In classic Satin Tobacco Burst or Satin Black, The Reverend Pete Anderson Eastsider Baritone hits all those surf, spaghetti western, and country deep sounds.
DISCLAIMER: Satin clear coats and nickel hardware as seen on the Pete Anderson signature guitars have certain physical characteristics that predispose them to aging and looking like a vintage instrument more rapidly than other finishes. As with all Reverend signature models, the choices to use these materials were made by the artist and are included on these guitars to better fit their vision of an ideal instrument.

We design our own proprietary custom pickups, to achieve the best tonal match with our instruments. Reverend pickups are also specifically designed for each position, for balanced volume and tone when switching.
Roasted Maple Neck
Roasted Maple is heat treated at over 300° F to remove sugars, moisture, and impurities. This maple is lighter, more stable, and has a beautiful caramel color. The result is an exceptional maple neck that will require less seasonal adjustment, and boasts a rich vintage look!
Korina (aka White Limba) is a medium-light weight wood, highly prized for consistency and tonal qualities. Often found in boutique and vintage instruments, all Reverends feature Korina bodies. A highly resonant wood, Korina is a key factor to producing our lively, responsive instruments that are rich in harmonics.
The Eastsider has three strategically placed chambers underneath the pickguard for all the increase in resonance and warmth that you'd expect. The placement of the cavities also reduces neck-diving balance issues found in most chambered guitars.
