Reverend Ron Asheton Signature Guitar

Reverend collaborated with proto-punk guitar legend Ron Asheton (1948-2009) to bring you this unique guitar. Based on our popular Volcano model, this guitar melds three Reverend CP90 pickups with a korina body for a raw, yet fat tone with a percussive attack. The perfect guitar for edgy rock tones, but also versatile enough for just about any situation. Unique features include: lightning bolt body logo, and Ron’s signature silkscreened on the back of the headstock.

Cinetopia Film Festival. A Tribute to Ron Asheton, Featuring Iggy and the Stooges

(0 Comments)

Recorded live at the Michigan Theater in Ann Arbor, MI, this heartfelt tribute/celebration of Stooges’ guitarist Ron Asheton’s life and music features Iggy and the Stooges, Henry Rollins, guest guitarist Deniz Tek (Radio Birdman) and director Jim Jarmusch. Featured songs include, “Raw Power,” “Search and Destroy,” “Gimme Danger,” “1970,” “Fun House,” and the ever popular “I Wanna Be Your Dog.” Gary Graff of Billboard says, “It was a typical night of Stooges-style brutality but in an even more passionate form, as the group and its guests took a wide swing through the repertoire, clearly moved by the sense of occasion and the cacophonous spirit of the 1,700 fans who snapped up tickets for the concert in less than an hour.” (114 min.)

Special pricing applies for Cinetopia Films: $12 general admission, $9 for DIA members.

Festival passes are available through the Michigan Theater box office. Please call (866) 777-8932 or visit the Cinetopia website at http://www.cinetopiafestival.org

Ron Asheton Signature Model Ice White Flying V

Reverend Guitars had the honor of working with Ron Asheton on his Reverend Signature Model. Based on our Volcano body, the guitar features three Reverend P-90s and a Rosewood Fret board, and has that edgy rock tone that Asheton used to create a genre. He used it extensively on his world tours with The Stooges in the 2000s. Always available in Rock Orange with a three lightning bolt logo on the front, and his signature on the back, Reverend Guitars is now offering it in Ice White for 2013.

Like all Reverends, the Ron Asheton Signature Model has a Korina body for consistency and clarity, pin-lock tuners, and the exclusive Reverend Bass Contour, which adjusts the low frequencies in the same way that the tone control adjusts the highs.

Famed materials, select upgrades, and fresh innovations: Reverends are for daring musicians and independent dealers.

The Stooges’ homecoming/tribute concert, April: Around 1,700 people showed up to hear punk rock pioneers Iggy Pop and the Stooges play a benefit concert in honor of their late bandmate Ron Asheton at the Michigan Theater in April. The raw power of Iggy Pop and band provided a double dose of musical nostalgia and solid musicianship, charging through their hits while offering a heartfelt tribute to one of Ann Arbor’s overlooked musical heroes. (One AnnArbor.com writer wrote, “I’ll never forget watching everyone run up on stage. It’s the wildest ‘party’ at the Michigan Theater I’ve ever attended.”) In a remarkable turn, it was the first of a two-part homecoming by the two Ann Arbor-bred acts who have been inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
