The Story Behind Revved

Revved Guitars are custom built by me, Jason Hallett, out of a Northern California garage

I started building guitars for fun when I was 12 years old (a long time ago - and admittedly, they were not good at all)

Then one day in 2006, I went to go grab my strat, and my cord had a short... which I only realized after I changed the dead active pickup battery.

Frustrated, I just grabbed my acoustic, and then it hit me... why doesn't the guitar on the stand just stay charged, like my electric toothbrush, and why isn't it wireless?

So I filed for a patent (which was granted) on a system that would use inductive charging to charge not only the pickup battery, but also a wireless unit, or any other onboard effects, while it sits on the stand.

Over the years I have built quality guitars for those that want the freedom of being wireless, and the ability to use onboard technology without constant battery headaches...

A Revved Guitar.

I still occassionally make guitars for people, as a creative outlet, and a lifelong passion, but I couldn't really stop innovating on the original idea. So in 2021 (after a lot of trial and error), I finally created an aftermarket kit that can be used to upgrade ST-style tremolo guitars with the common "boat" style jack plate.

For those that are comfortable with a drill and a screw driver, it's a fairly simple upgrade. For those with router skills, the system can really be added to any electric guitar or bass.
