Originally launched in 2015, Revstar was the first new electric guitar series from Yamaha in over a decade. A completely new lineup for 2022 offers three tiers, chambered bodies on every model, new racing-inspired finishes, new switching options, and left-handed models.
The RSS20 features six finish options, a chambered body and carbon-reinforced neck, dual humbucking pickups, 5-way switching, and a passive Focus Switch, providing exceptional versatility.
Every new Revstar features a chambered body designed with Yamaha’s Acoustic Design process to sculpt tone and increase resonance while reducing weight and optimising balance.
Standard and Professional models offer 5-way switching. In positions 2 and 4, our circuit slightly delays the opposite pickup for a new take on classic “in between” sounds.
The push/pull Focus Switch on Standard and Professional models activates a passive boost that darkens highs while increasing bass and mids for an effect like overwound pickups.
CARBON REINFORCEMENT (Standard and Professional models only)
Revstar Standard and Professional models feature carbon-reinforced necks. Professional models also add carbon reinforcement to the body for weight relief, vibration transfer, and tone shaping.
Revstar Element models feature our push/pull Dry Switch high-pass filter circuit that was first introduced with the original Revstar series.
INITIAL RESPONSE ACCELERATION (I.R.A.)
Revstar Professional guitars receive Yamaha’s I.R.A. treatment process which applies specifics vibrations to release stresses in the instrument for a “played in” tone.
