Overview

Inspired by the 1974 Yamaha ‘Super Flighter’ guitar, the RS620 takes its design cues from a cult classic, combining them in perfect balance with the individual styling and custom-built vibe of the Revstar concept. Its roots definitely run deep, but this isn’t your dad’s guitar. Includes gig bag.

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. Eventually, a spec was settled on for each guitar model and the Revstar pickup series was born. This model features VH5 pickups (8.3k (neck)/8.8k (bridge) DCR) with Alnico V magnets, German silver baseplate and heavy formvar wire for bright, powerful, balanced vintage/modern sound
 
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.

Custom Hardware
Inspired by the stripped-down custom Café Racer motorbikes popularized on the streets of London in the 1960s, Revstar's hardware captures the high-performance, individual character of those bikes with a wide range of totally unique, customized hardware. From the unique pickup covers and raw copper scratchplate on the Revstar Professional, to the totally custom floating aluminum tailpiece on the RS502T, each and every component is perfectly calibrated for great performance and unmistakable style—capturing the very essence of a Café Racer.

Sound Image
Inspired by raw power and performance, Revstar's sound is as unique and bold as its aesthetic. Working to evoke a visceral, unbridled power and an individual, organic tone that is made possible only by considering every detail, Yamaha's engineers chose materials carefully and designed custom pickups to make sure Revstar sounds as stunning as it looks.

    Comments about Yamaha Revstar RS620 Electric Guitar:

    This guitar has some of the best pickups I've ever heard. I generally stay away from any kind of humbucker-equipped guitars, for me personally I prefer brighter surf-y tones and I play cleaner more often than not. Buckers usually make me gag with high output muddy blegh tones only good for slavish power chord use and the occasional 'rock guitar solo'. This guitar was 1 fascinating exception to this stereotype. They sound soo warm but perfectly defined, and the dry knob option just adds more to its versatility. Excellent craftsmanship it just felt "right" in my hands. Plays like butter, equipped with a no-nonsense solid bridge you know wont give you any problems. Once again versatile I was playing sappy folk stuff 1 min then surf rock the next. The only thing I can say bad about it is the style of the inlay and the combination of the satin-y finish w/ the super quilted top came across a little cheesy, not dissing the satin tho it was unique. Thats really the best I got for complaints, Im still lost as to what the difference between this and the 820 is (the color choices for the 820's r way better imo)? Havent gotten to play the latter yet. To me, maybe the rest of the world hasnt caught on yet or my taste is just weird, but these yamahas blow Gibson and some fenders away regarding price. Definitely can see myself maining 1 in the future.
