INSPIRATION
Drawing from the stylish lines and honed performance of the Café Racer bikes that graced the streets of 1960s London, Revstar embraces the concept of being stripped down, tuned up and dialed in.

INNOVATION
Precision crafting and beautiful engineering driven by a desire to reach new heights.

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.
VH3 PICKUPS - RS420
Alnico V magnet and German silver baseplate for powerful, open tone.

DRY SWITCH
Dry Switch 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.

COMFORT-CONTOURED BODY
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.

INITIAL RESPONSE ACCELERATION (I.R.A.)
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.
