THIS LISTING IS FOR A YAMAHA REVSTAR RS502SB BLACK SHOP DEMO WITH SMALL MARKS. THERE ARE CLEANING MARKS ON THE FACE OF THE GUITAR, A MARK ON THE NECK AND A SMALL CHIP OF PAINT TAKEN OFF THE HEADSTOCK (SEE PHOTOS IN LISTING).
The Yamaha Revstar RS502SB Shop Black isn’t just cool, this guitar utterly oozes style, class and tone. Its custom P-90 style pickups matched with the Mahogany body and give a full yet controlled sound, ready for whatever you want to riff on it – from rock to pop and everything between!
The new Revstar range of electric guitars from Yamaha! Featuring eight unique models and 15 finishes, the Revstar collection of guitars draws on Yamaha’s 50-year history of guitar-making and adds features 21st-century guitarists expect. The range features four custom-wound pickup configurations – ceramic and alnico humbuckers, P-90s and Filtertron-style humbuckers – a selection of tone woods, hardware options, fast-wearing matte finishes (for that vintage vibe) and styling that’s just different enough. With just the right mix of retro-cool and modern-day features and playability, there is a Revstar guitar to suit everyone’s style.
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.
The RS502 has a distinct design with a steel wool finish and comes with a custom P-90 pickup and the same wraparound bridge as the RS620.
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.
