YAMAHA REVSTAR RS720B – WALL FADE LACQUER
The new Revstar range of electric guitars from Yamaha draws on Yamaha’s 50-year history of guitar-making and adds features 21st-century guitarists expect. The range features four custom-wound pickup configurations, a superb selection of tone woods, hardware options, fast-wearing matte finishes (for that vintage vibe) and styling that’s just different enough. With just the right mix of retro-cool and modern-day features and playability, there is a Revstar guitar to suit everyone’s style.
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, it’s destined to become an instant classic.
The RS720B model is a classic design look featuring a stunning flame maple top with the signature steel wool hand rubbed finish and Bigsby tremolo. The model is optimised for a jangling clear tones although it willroar when coaxed. Pickups are custom wound F’Tron-type units. Locking machine heads help to keep tuning in check.
The new Revstar electric guitar series introduces a new design concept geared to today’s style sensibilities and features Yamaha’s unique design capabilities in the first major update to the classic Yamaha guitar body shape in over a decade.
The new design is the culmination of three years of development incorporating information from multiple interviews and feedback from professional artists, music industry professionals, and guitar enthusiasts in London, Los Angeles, and Tokyo.
The re-articulated design presents advances in design and sound production through a blend of Yamaha-ness with Japanese design sensibilities. The visual concept evokes the classic, stripped-down look of the customised Café Racer motorbikes popular in 1960s London and is specifically engineered to have the warm feel and look of well-used vintage equipment.
The Revstar concept combines Yamaha’s 50-year legacy of guitar craftsmanship with Japan’s heritage of engineering excellence. Meticulous engineering makes the Revstar guitar models ideal instruments for musicians performing in a wide range of musical styles.
