The style, feel, and sound of the RS720B is unmistakably classic, however, no detail has been left to blind tradition. From totally unique pickups voiced to match the Bigsby vibrato, to re-imagined inlays from a vintage Yamaha guitar and the beautiful hand-cut finish, it’s destined to become an instant classic.

The RS720B model is a classic design look featuring a flamed maple top with a steel wool finish and Bigsby tremolo arm. The model is optimized for a clear sound with a custom-made Tron-type pickup and locking tuner.

The new 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.

Pickups

Designed from the ground up, Revstar features specially wound YGD pickups that are perfectly matched to each guitar. More than 50 prototype pickups were tested featuring different combinations of wire, windings, magnets and base plates. VT5 -  Alnico V magnets, brass baseplate and underwound polyurethane wire for clear, ringing, low-output tone. 4.3k (neck)/4.9k (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.

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.
