Joe Naylor's Reverend guitar company has announced details of a new Ron Asheton signature model.

Asheton, most famous for being the guitar sideman to Iggy Pop in proto-punk icons The Stooges, has opted for a V-shaped electric derived from the Reverend Volcano model.

Three position-wound P90 pickups are combined with a five-way blade selector switch for maximum versatility, while the korina neck and body should guarantee more than enough punch.

Other features include a rather cool lightning bolt body logo, and a bass contour control.

For more information, check out the official Reverend website.

Alternatively, check out this video of The Stooges in their ragged prime in 1970 to see what all the fuss was about.
