From Yamaha –

“Featuring eight unique models and 15 finishes, the Revstar collection of guitars 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 – ceramic and alnico humbuckers, P-90s and Filtertron-style humbuckers – a 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 Yamaha 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 rearticulated 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 customized 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.”

Inspired by the 1974 Yamaha ‘Super Flighter’ guitar, the RS620 takes its design cues from a cult classic, combining them in perfect balance with the individual styling and custom-built vibe of the Revstar concept. Its roots definitely run deep, but this isn’t your dad’s guitar.

This RS620 has a flamed maple top with a Steel Wool finish and comes with a custom wraparound bridge for maximum effectiveness transmitting string vibration to the body.

This Revstar RS 620 is finished in the subtly alluring colour of Steel Wool - a lovely deep blue-grey which allows the wood grain to show through. The back, neck & sides are stained a rich deep mahogany.

This guitar was bought new less than two years ago and has been looked after very well. It presents as new – not a mark anywhere, no fret wear, no buckle rash, no issues.

It is essentially a new guitar with an excellent pro setup. Plays great and sounds big & toneful. These pickups are rich and complex, even when turned down low. But they certainly whallop when cranked up a little.

Weighs in at a comfortable 7.6 lbs.

The Revstar range usually comes with a gig bag, but the bonus with this one is its quality fitted hard shell case in excellent condition.
