Yo Brown Dog did he include that guitar strap? I thought at first that it was a Christmas wreath.[:o)]

Is he still playing Parker guitars or only his signature model (not sure which brand)?

In the early 2000s, Reeves Gabrels had a Fernandes signature guitar.

But now, he has a Reverend signature guitar:

too bad he isn't playing Parkers anymore! I think that guitar is just the right guitar for him.

Actually, his new Reverend signature is much more than just a "souped up tele." It's no nonsense, but it plays and sounds killer.

Oh My God!  My post got removed.  That's a first.  And for what reason, pray tell?

Quite functional I'm sure, but...I could live without it. It is rather unique...I hope and pray.

On the other hand, if one were addicted to any illicit substances that required frequent ingestion, that apparatus could hide a multitude of sins.

Such obvious methods of deployment thus obviated:

No it was quite benign.  I don't even recall exactly.  But I said that Reeve's Reverend looked like a souped up Tele.  That's about as controversial as I got.  Maybe Jason is working on a deal with Reverend?   Maybe he pushed the "Delete Post" by mistake?

Go figure.   Hey Jason!  Pipe up!

It is like a Tele with humbuckers and a trem....I really like those Reverend Buckshots and if I ever run across a used one at a good price I'll buy it! The Pete Anderson model looks cool too...

Not sure why the post went away.  No reason for it to, so my guess is that....?!?!?!

Just came across this, and wanted to add that during Bowie's 50th birthday concert, Reeves played the brown NiteFly and a green Bronze Fly (on "The Man Who Sold The World", and possibly some others), and Bowie played a black Deluxe Fly on "The Jean Genie".  I'd imagine that he played the black Fly during other gigs on that tour, but I haven't seen any other photos of it.  Great concert, by the way...probably the reason I ended up buying a brand new Ruby Red Deluxe Fly in 2001 (though it was actually made in 1998).

Now, Gabrels probably worked with Bowie longer than any other musician, but it couldn't last - Bowie rarely kept the same band for more than two albums.  The Spiders From Mars were only around for three, and look at them now!  They need money, because they really only work in one genre.  Gabrels works in several genres, but Bowie works in...what, a dozen?  Plus a few others that he made up?  So yeah, Reeves probably needed money, and his contract with Reverend means he can't play his Parkers anywhere anyway.  I think if he would've just sacked up and kept working for Bowie, he would be more widely known now than he currently is.  And maybe so would Parkers...

A fly would have been a fitting guitar for Ziggy Stardust if it was in production back in the early seventies!   8)
