    I've been interested in getting a Manta Ray (or Tricky Gomez) since I discovered Reverend guitars a few years ago, but it didn't happen, and with the state of the £ they'd become a bit pricey for me at £799. But every now & again I'd look online and wonder about buying one - especially after Reverend dropped the turquoise finish I really liked.

    Then, a couple of days ago I spotted Andertons had reduced the prices down to the level they were a couple of years ago. I don't know why, they're not even listed as reduced, which is weird, as dealers usually stick a 'reduced' sign on anything they can. I gave them a call, they knocked a few £ more off, and so I ordered one. Would've seemed rude not to. :)

    Seems to have the same high standard of finish I've found on other Reverends - but I've not had much of a chance to play it so far, it came late in the day, and an hour or two after my Gordon Smith GS1000 was returned to me - in fact, a completely new build, so I've ended up with two new guitars in one day. Oh well, they're likely to be the only ones I buy this year.

    I'll post more pics & comments after I've spent some time with it:
