Revstar series guitars are packed with personality

Inspired by the bold styling of London and Tokyo's vintage street-racing motorbikes, Yamaha's Revstar series of electric guitars features dramatic curves, character-packed custom-wound pickups, and delightfully muscular tone. Each model in the Revstar lineup is full of its own distinct personality. These instruments exude a distinctiveness as unique as the guitarists who play them.

YGD pickups with Dry switch deliver diverse tones

The Yamaha RS420's YGD pickups were specially wound to match its personality. More than 50 prototype pickups were tested featuring different combinations of wire, windings, magnets, and baseplates before Yamaha spec'd this guitar. The YGD humbuckers in the RS420 make use of an Alnico V magnet and German silver baseplate to create a powerful, open tone. At Guitar World, we dig the tonal flexibility provided by the RS420's Dry switch tone control, which filters out low frequencies to bring you hum-free single-coil tones.

Contoured body and thin neck profile yield amazing playing comfort

Thanks to its contoured shape, the Yamaha RS420 is amazingly comfortable to play. The RS420 features a rear body contour and a neck joint that allows for easy upper-fret access. The RS420's thin neck profile adds to this guitar's exceptional playability.
