Yamaha Revstar Standard RSS02T Hot Merlot
Revstar refines the look, sound, and feel of Yamaha’s original Revstar® guitar series. The RSS20T features a custom tailpiece. Its chambered body and carbon-reinforced neck were developed using Yamaha’s exclusive Acoustic Design process to enhance tone, reduce weight, and ensure optimal balance without sacrificing resonance. P90-style pickups combined with a 5-position pickup selector and a passive push/pull Focus Switch provide uncommon versatility for a two-pickup guitar. A deluxe gig bag is included.
The utilitarian British Café racer motorcycles seen in 1960s London are credited with inspiring the Revstar’s curved lines and classic aesthetics, giving these svelte guitars a rugged no-frills attitude. Using Yamaha’s Acoustic Design methodology, a special double-cut chambered body was created in order to optimize the Revstar’s balance, produce a resonant tone, and shed weight. Yamaha’s research paid off, as evidenced by the Revstar’s body, which features a highly comfortable design and exemplifies Yamaha’s unwavering commitment to musical innovation. It only takes one strumming of the Yamaha Revstar Standard RSS02T to see this!
Every new Revstar features a chambered body designed with Yamaha's Acoustic Design process to sculpt tone, reduce weight, and optimize balance.
