A Modern Classic In The Making
With the Yamaha Revstar RS820CR Electric Guitar in Steel Rust you get a guitar truly showcases the designers love of those 1960s Cafe Racer bikes.
Featuring a doublecut body design, with a handbrushed satin finish, a pair of powerful humbucking pickups, and a TonePros AVT-II bridge, this guitar brings together vintage style with modern playability.
Custom Wound Humbuckers
Sitting pretty in the Neck and Bridge positions on the Revstar RS820CR, you'll find a pair of custom-wound YGD V5 humbuckers. Featuring Alnico V magnets, silver baseplates, and heavy Formvar wire, the pickups offer a rich, open voice, that perfectly balances both Vintage and Modern tones.
These pickups offer outstanding clarity at any gain level, and are as versatile as you could wish for - and that's even before the Dry Switch has come into play.
The Dry Switch
Designed by Yamaha exclusively for their Revstar range, this "Dry Switch" is activated via the Push/Pull function on your Master Tone control pot. When activated, this passive circuit filters out your guitar's low frequencies, giving you the punch and clarity of a single coil pickup - but without any of that annoying 60 cycle hum!
