Copper pick guards wear over time as the guitar is played naturally creating a unique look for each player. Craftsmen-selected and -calibrated parts and Yamaha’s unique Initial Response Acceleration (I.R.A.) technology give it a maturesound and easy playability from the first day.
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.
