most unique inventory for san antonio musicians
A Reverend dealer since 2004, Guitar Tex is one of only two Reverend dealers in Texas. Consequently, we get folks from all over the state dropping in to try them out.
Reverend guitars are built in the Mirr factory, known for making boutique quality instruments in South Korea. From there the assembly and set up is done by a small team of pros in Toledo, Ohio. Reverend guitars and basses are designed by founder Joe Naylor. Reverend guitars and basses are uniquely original while remaining true to the traditional American ethos with forward thinking and cool looking instruments.

Bridge is TOM with stop tail; neck is three-piece korina and 24.75 inch scale and Rosewood fingerboard with 12 inch radius. Case or bag is available but not included. Priced at $1,099.
Club King 290
This new Reverend Club King 290 semi-hollow features a solid spruce top over routed Korina with a pair of P-90 pickups, a Bigsby B-50, and more coolness than can be accounted. Part of Reverend’s bolt-on line of instruments, it has a 25.5 inch scale, roasted maple neck, 43mm nut, Reverend Pin-Lock tuners along with controls for Volume, Tone, and Bass Contour with a 3-way switch. It is finished in Deep Sea Blue. Case or bag is available but extra. Priced at $1,199.
Greg Koch Gristlemaster
Based on a classic T-style body, Reverend made the Greg Koch Gristlemaster slightly larger, added a raised center ridge, and placed a chamber under the pickguard, all for tons of sustain and resonance. The guitar is equipped with the Fishman Greg Koch Signature Gristle-Tone pickups – hum-free, rechargeable active pickups with two distinct voicings. A roasted maple compound radius neck contributes to the playability, while the Wilkinson Classic 3-Saddle bridge with staggered brass saddles and steel baseplate keeps the tone vintage-inspired. Price: $1,699.
Double Agent W
Take the humbucker in the bridge position, P-90 at the neck, and what Reverend calls their Italian Purple for the finish and you have a guitar that’s going to make a statement both sonically and visually. This Double Agent W features a solid Korina body, HA5 Bridge and 9A5 Neck pickups, a Wilkinson WVS50 IIK Tremolo, and a roasted Maple neck with a Rosewood fingerboard. A volume, tone, bass contour, 3-way switch control what comes between you and your amplification. Price: $1,099.
Reverend Descent W
2000 Rumblefish (SOLD)
Reverend Airwave 12-String (Sold)
Reverend says the Airwave 12-String brings “larger than life tone and style, not larger than life problems,” and that rings true in our experience. The bridge is fully and independently intonable for all 12 strings. The 24 3/4 inch scale length reduces string tension which offers both greater ease of play and less stress on the neck. With 9A5 Bridge and Neck pickups, korina semi-hollow body, solid spruce top, and the Mulberry Mist finish, this is a stunning instrument.

We are easy to reach from both the San Antonio International Airport and from Downtown.
We are at 4330 McCullough, and McCullough goes all the way downtown. In the old days, it was one of the few routes out of down town that didn’t cross railroad tracks. (A big deal when you have a wagon – I’ve heard. Never experienced it.) The maps and driving directions will help alot. Easy to know when you’re getting close because we’re just past the traffic circle/fountain.
