Yamaha's Revstar Standard RSS02T is an innovative electric guitar offering comfortable playability and a range of organic tones. Its chambered mahogany body with a striking maple top reduces weight while enhancing resonance. The carbon-reinforced mahogany neck provides stability and accessibility to higher frets. Outfitted with two Yamaha VP5 P-90 pickups, this double-cutaway guitar produces crisp cleans and an aggressive bite when overdriven.

Focus Switch Sculpts Your Sound

A passive push-pull "Focus Switch" on the Revstar RSS02T shifts the resonant frequency to shape your tone. Engage the switch to amplify the power and cut of the VP5 pickups for a punchier, more articulate sound ideal for solos or rhythm playing. Disengage the switch for warmer, fuller tones perfect for chording or jazzier styles.

Classic Design With Modern Refinements

The Revstar RSS02T updates the retro café racer-inspired style of Yamaha's original Revstar series with a sleek tailpiece and racing-stripe finishes. Its 12" fingerboard radius and jumbo stainless steel frets provide a familiar feel for shredding leads or complex chords. The 5-way pickup selector offers a range of single-coil tones from glassy neck pickup sounds to a throaty bridge pickup growl.

Premium Components and Construction

Yamaha's dedication to quality is evident in the Revstar RSS02T's solid build and high-performance components. Its set mahogany neck is reinforced for stability while remaining lightweight, with a rosewood fingerboard and 22 frets. The tune-o-matic bridge anchors the strings, enabling precise intonation adjustments. Premium die-cast tuners help this axe stay in tune through dynamic playing styles.
