Designed from the ground up, Revstar features specially-wound YGD pickups that are perfectly matched to each guitar. More than 50 prototype pickups were tested featuring different combinations of wire, windings, magnets and base plates. Eventually, a spec was settled on for each guitar model and the Revstar pickup series was born. Ceramic magnet and brass baseplate for powerful, punchy tone to match the solid nato wood construction of RS320.
Designed especially for Revstar, the Yamaha proprietary Dry Switch gives you the versatility of a coil split, but with 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 without the inevitable hum and hollow tone often associated with split humbucking pickups. The Dry Switch works on both humbuckers and P90s for a totally unique, usable tone.
Inspired by the stripped-down, custom Café Racer motorbikes popularized in the 1960s, Revstar hardware captures their high-performance and individual character. Each and every component is perfectly calibrated for great performance and unmistakable style.
Revstar is a workhorse through and through, but that doesn't compromise its comfort and playability. With every contour designed from the ground up to look and feel great, the Revstar body features a deep belly cut, hidden forearm contour and a newly-designed neck joint for outstanding upper fret access.
Using I.R.A. technology, stresses between parts like finish, woods, body, neck and fingerboard are released by applying specific vibrations to the completed guitars. Once this treatment is complete, the guitar responds accurately and produces sound more easily. It also shortens the time required for the guitar to adapt to your playing style and delivers excellent sustain.
