New for 2016 Yamaha Revstar RS620. Inspired by the 1974 Yamaha SF Series “Super Fighter” 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…
The RS620 has a flamed maple top with a steel wool finish and comes with a custom wraparound bridge for maximum effectiveness transmitting string vibration to the body.
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.
The new 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.
