Yamaha RS620 Revstar in Maya Gold

Features

  • Pickups: Designed from the ground up, Revstar features specially wound YGD pickups that are perfectly matched to the 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. The RS620 features VH5 pickups with Alnico V magnet, German silver baseplate and heavy formvar wire for bright, powerful, balanced vintage/modern sound. [8.3k (neck) / 8.8k (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, customized hardware. 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.
