Perfectly On The Point Where Familiarity And Uniqueness Coincide - The Yamaha Revstar RS720B Electric Guitar
The style, feel, and sound of the RS720B is unmistakably classic, however, no detail has been left to blind tradition. From totally unique pickups voiced to match the Bigsby vibrato, to re-imagined inlays from a vintage Yamaha guitar and the beautiful hand-cut finish, itâ€™s destined to become an instant classic.
Drawing inspiration from London and Tokyoâ€™s vintage street-racing motorbikes, Japanâ€™s heritage of engineering excellence and the 50-year legacy of Yamaha guitar craftsmanship, every detail of each Revstar model has been carefully engineered to bring out the unique personality of each guitar in the lineup. From the curves and contours of the ground-up body design to the distinctive colors and finishes and custom-wound pickups that perfectly match the guitarâ€™s character, the Revstar collection comprises a diverse lineup of instruments as unique as the guitarists who play them. This is Revstar - meet your other half.
Inspired by raw power and performance, Revstarâ€™s sound is as unique and bold as its aesthetic. Working to evoke a visceral, unbridled power and an individual, organic tone that is made possible only by considering every detail, Yamahaâ€™s engineers chose materials carefully and designed custom pickups to make sure Revstar sounds as stunning as it looks.

Designed especially for Revstar, Yamahaâ€™s proprietary Dry Switch gives you the versatility of a coil split, but with a tone thatâ€™s miles ahead. Using a passive filter circuit painstakingly designed to give the perfect frequency response, the Dry Switch filters out low frequencies to give the punch and clarity of a single coil pickup minus the inevitable hum and hollow tone often associated with split humbucking pickups. And because itâ€™s a filter circuit, the Dry Switch works on both humbuckers and P90s for a totally unique, usable tone.
Inspired by the stripped-down custom CafÃ© Racer motorbikes popularized on the streets of London in the 1960s, Revstarâ€™s hardware captures the high-performance, individual character of those bikes with a wide range of totally unique, customized hardware. From the unique pickup covers and raw copper scratchplate on the Revstar Professional, to the totally custom floating aluminum tailpiece on the RS502T, each and every component is perfectly calibrated for great performance and unmistakable style-capturing the very essence of a CafÃ© Racer.
