Very cool!

This guitar rocks! The pickups sound amazing - the lows are very warm without bring muddy and the highs are quite chimey when you need that crystal clear tone. Also I dig that blue color a lot!

Great Mid-Priced Guitar

The RS420 is one of the standout guitars on Yamaha's Revstar line of electrics. A double cutaway nato body gives this model its character defining shape while a 22 fret nato neck enhances playability beyond description. Its really just something you have to get in your hands to appreciate the ergonomics of. The VH3 ceramic humbuckers give this guitar its class defining bold and attention commanding sound. Keep in mind, this guitar isn't sold with a gig bag and would need to be supplied separately

Nice affordable pro Guitar

A cool vintage inspired guitar from Yamaha that plays great. The humbucking pickups deliver a modern Gibson style retro tone somewhere between an SG and Les Paul. As usual with Yamaha the Bridge and tuners are pro quality making this a great guitar for the price.

This new Yamaha Rev Star series is awesome. Very high quality for the price. They have a great fit, finish and feel. Plugged in the pickups sound great, very articulate and they have a great tone. The necks are very comfortable and the colors are great. A great new guitar line!

Nice New look Electric

This is a retro styled double cutaway solidbody with the usual 2 humbucking pickups. Using Nato wood with a maple top, this set neck guitar is somewhere along the lines of a LP double cut. The pickups have an effective push pull design which give a dryer single cut effect. A good affordable guitar, the blue finish is killer.

Really cool and unique guitar

Yamaha is a household name known for quality products in a myriad of fields. Their musical instruments are no exception to quality and tremendous value. When I first saw the Revstar line I was welcomed by the familiar yet unique design. It definitely reminds me of some older instruments (particularly older Yamaha electrics) but still has it's own thing going on. So how did it sound and play? I feel like Yamaha nailed it. Fit, finish, and setup out of the box are great for the price. I'd likely just setup for my gauge of strings and playing style (which is something I'd do with any guitar)...likening it to buying a car how often are you going to get a new car where everything is set perfectly to you (mirrors, settings, etc). To me the guitar definitely has a vintage mojo and vibe to it in sound and feel but with some modern refinement meaning it's a little easier to play than a lot of vintage instruments and you can coax some other tones out of it. Totally dig the factory blue finish and felt Yamaha really has a good thing going with the Revstar line. Definitely check these out if you want a great playing and sounding guitar that doesn't break the bank that stands out from the crowd with a modern twist on retro.
