Articulate and unique – the Revstar RS502TFMX is equipped with a pair of exquisite VP5 P-90 pickups. They’re renowned for their unbelievable versatility, meaning you can experience a tremendous range of tonal possibilities. Taking the brightness and snap of a single-coil, and blending it with the warmth of a humbucker – P-90s offer a sound that will thrive in any style you wish.
Their distinctive sonic character remains present throughout your playing. So you can always rely on a sound that is truly unique to you. Topped off with volume and tone controls to expertly shape your tone, the Revstar RS502TFMX gifts an authentically rich voice that always flourishes – no matter your own, personal taste.
A ton of expertly designed features. All coming together to give you the most complete playing experience you've ever had in a guitar. First, the neck. It's made from sleek mahogany, allowing your hand to glide smoothly up and down the RS502TFMX's scale. And it's feel comfortable as it does so. A "C"-shaped neck profile fits snugly to the contours of your hand.
There's much more. Jumbo sized frets increase the guitar's playing area. This means that it's easier to hit every note - especially useful for when you're playing at speed. And a double cutaway body provides uninhibited access to the top of the slick rosewood fingerboard, which provides definition and crisp articulation in everything you play. This is playability, enhanced.
Coil-splitting. But not as you know it. The Yamaha Revstar RS502TFMX comes fitted with the specially designed dry switch feature. With most coil-split humbuckers, after the pickup is split to sound like a single-coil, volume is lost and clarity muddied. Thanks to the dry switch, this won't happen with the Revstar. It filters out low frequencies, while maintaining output and fidelity. So you can experiment as much as you like with humbucker and single-coil voices, safe in the knowledge your sound will be on-point.
This is iconic style. Inspired by Yamaha's legendary Cafe Racer motorcycles seen on the roads of Tokyo and London in the 1960s, the Revstar looks sleek, distinctive, and unmistakably cool. With dual racing stripes in the centre of the body, a unique black pickguard, and shining satin nickel hardware, this is a guitar stylish enough for the catwalk. Absolutely stunning.
