Yamaha Unveil Revstar Guitar Series

Yamaha has officially unveiled the Revstar guitar series. The Japanese manufacturer has drawn upon inspiration from London and Tokyo's vintage street racing motorbikes for the Revstar series and coupled this with 50-years-worth of guitar craftsmanship.

Each model of the Revstar boasts the Hanko, a stamp of approval, which Yamaha describe as "a small sign of the pride we take in every guitar we build."

It is the first time in 20 years since Yamaha had a completely new model. Furthermore, the guitars are custom designed and each model boasts custom hardware and pickups.

Each guitar in the series has their own unique points. The RS720 in Ash Grey has an official Bigsby, low-output humbuckers for a more classic and vintage tone but still incredibly versatile. Excellent finishes can also be seen throughout the range, including the striking RS820 in the Rusty Rat and Steel Rat finishes respectively.

There are even more stripped-back versions of the Revstar in the form of the RS320, which is a solid sounding rock 'n' roll-style guitar with no frills.
