Overview

@ REVSTAR

Yamaha Revstar 720B Electric Guitar.

Inspiring, Powerful, Unique.

There are some things you can’t quantify. Its the difference between admiring a guitar, or picking one up and writing something new without even trying.

When you take a small team of passionate, dedicated guitar developers, and give them access to all the technology, knowledge, and audio expertise of a multi national music company, things get interesting pretty quickly.

The new Yamaha RevStar 720 electric guitars features Tune-O-Matic bridge with a Bigsby B-50 tailpiece, and Filtertron style Humbucker - along with a gigbag to keep your new guitar protected.

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.

Features

Sound

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.

Pickups

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.

Alnico 5 magnet, brass baseplate and underwound polyurethane wire for clear, ringing, low-output tone.[4.3k (neck) / 4.9k (bridge) DCR]

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.

Custom Hardware

Inspired by the stripped-down custom Café Racer motorbikes popularized on the streets of London in the 1960s, Revstar’s hardware captures the high-performance, individual character of those bikes with a wide range of totally unique, customised hardware. From the unique pickup covers and raw copper scratchplate on the Revstar Professional, to the totally custom floating aluminium tailpiece on the RS502T, each and every component is perfectly calibrated for great performance and unmistakable style—capturing the very essence of a Café Racer.

Comfort Contoured Body

Revstar is a workhorse through and through, but that doesn’t mean there has been any compromise on comfort and playability. 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. This is a guitar made to be played all night.

Custom-mixed colours drawn from Japan's engineering heritage and raw organic textures designed to tell your story with every inch of wear
