Balance—a simple concept that is often difficult to achieve. The RS420 combines outstanding performance with a character all its own to hit that elusive stylistic sweet spot, for a guitar that walks it like it talks it.
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.
Designed from the ground up, Revstar features specially wound YGD pickups that are perfectly matched to each guitar.
VH3 : RS420
Alnico V magnet and German silver baseplate for powerful, open tone.
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. 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.
Each and every component is perfectly calibrated for great performance and unmistakable style.
Comfort Contoured Body
With every contour designed from the ground up to look and feel great, Revstar’s body features a deep belly cut, hidden forearm contour and a newly designed neck joint for outstanding upper fret access.
