New for 2016 Yamaha Revstar RS502. The RS502 has a Mahogany body with Maple top and comes equipped with two P90 pickups – this guitar is specifically engineered to have the warm feel & look of well-used vintage equipment…
The new Revstar design is the culmination of three years of development incorporating information from multiple interviews and feedback from professional artists, music industry professionals, and guitar enthusiasts in London, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. The rearticulated design presents advances in design and sound production through a blend of Yamaha-ness with Japanese design sensibilities. The visual concept evokes the classic, stripped-down look of the customized Café Racer motorbikes popular in 1960s London and is specifically engineered to have the warm feel and look of well-used vintage equipment. The Revstar concept combines Yamaha’s 50-year legacy of guitar craftsmanship with Japan’s heritage of engineering excellence. Meticulous engineering makes the Revstar guitar models ideal instruments for musicians performing in a wide range of musical styles.
Japanese minimalist style is simple to describe but hard to capture. With just enough of everything you need, and nothing that you don’t, the RS502 is exactly what it should be–beautifully simple.
