Perfectly On The Point Where Familiarity And Uniqueness Coincide - The Yamaha Revstar RS820CR Electric Guitar In Brushed Teal Blue

Designed to race from coffee shop to coffee shop on the streets of London in the 1960s, Café Racer bikes were high-performance racers stripped down to their bare essentials, but still reflected the style of their owner. The RS820CR captures that spirit of total focus on performance and cannot be fully appreciated until it is taken out for a test drive.

Drawing inspiration from London and Tokyo's vintage street-racing motorbikes, Japan'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 guitar'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, Revstar'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, Yamaha's engineers chose materials carefully and designed custom pickups to make sure Revstar sounds as stunning as it looks.

Dry Switch

Designed especially for Revstar, Yamaha's proprietary Dry Switch gives you the versatility of a coil split, but with a tone that'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 it's a filter circuit, the Dry Switch works on both humbuckers and P90s for a totally unique, usable tone.
