Yamaha REVSTAR RS502T Solid body Electric Guitar
Drawing inspiration from London and Tokyo’s vintage street-racing motorbikes, Japan’s heritage of engineering excellence, and Yamaha’s 50-year legacy of guitar craftsmanship, every detail of each Revstar model been carefully engineered to bring out the unique personality of each guitar in the lineup. From the curves and contours of the ground-up body design to the distinctive colours and finishes and custom-wound pickups that perfectly match the guitar’s character, the Revstar collection comprises a diverse lineup of instruments as unique as the guitarists who play them. This is Revstar—meet your other half.
 
Inspired by raw power and performance, Revstar’s sound is as unique and bold as its aesthetic. Working to evoke a visceral, unbridled power and an individual, organic tone that is made possible only by considering every detail, Yamaha’s engineers chose materials carefully and designed custom pickups to make sure Revstar sounds as stunning as it looks.
The 502TBG features set-neck construction with a Maple topped Mahogany body, Mahogany neck, Rosewood fingerboard, custom Aluminium floating tailpiece and Alnico P90 pickups. All finished off in the uber-cool Bowden Green finish.

Pickups
Yamaha Revstar pickupsDesigned from the ground up, Revstar features specially wound YGD pickups that are perfectly matched to each guitar. More than 50 prototype pickups were tested featuring different combinations of wire, windings, magnets and base plates. Eventually, a spec was settled on for each guitar model and the Revstar pickup series was born.

DRY SWITCH
Yamaha Revstar Dry-switchDesigned especially for Revstar, Yamaha’s proprietary Dry Switch gives you the versatility of a coil split, but with a tone that’s miles ahead.
Using a passive filter circuit painstakingly designed to give the perfect frequency response, the Dry Switch filters out low frequencies to give the punch and clarity of a single coil pickup minus the inevitable hum and hollow tone often associated with split humbucking pickups.
Plus, because it’s a filter circuit, the Dry Switch works on both humbuckers and P90s for a totally unique, usable tone.

Comfort Contoured Body
Revstar custom comfort bodyRevstar is a workhorse through and through, but that doesn’t mean there has been any compromise on comfort and playability. With every contour designed from the ground up to look and feel great, Revstar’s body features a deep belly cut, hidden forearm contour and a newly designed neck joint for outstanding upper fret access. This is a guitar made to be played all night.
