Yamaha Revstar RS502 Electric Guitar
Loaded with a pair of vintage style P90 pickups,complete with Yamaha's Dry Switch option for added tonal versatility, the Yamaha Revstar RS502 Electric Guitar will appeal to players across various genres after a classy, workhorse guitar at an affordable price.
The Revstar RS502 has double cutaway mahogany body that is topped with a maple cap, aiding to the guitar's classic range of tones. The set-in mahogany neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard that hosts 22 jumbo frets and utilizes a newly designed neck joint for easy access to the upper frets.
As with all of the Yamaha Revstar range, the RS502 features specially designed pickups that compliment the guitar. The pair of P90s feature Alnico V magnets, a German silver baseplate and plain enamel wire for clear, vintage tone with bite. Tonal versatility comes in form of Yamahas proprietary Dry Switch. The Dry Switch delivers a vastly improved coil split like tone via a clever passive filter circuit that has been designed to give the perfect frequency response, punch and tone of a single coil pickup, minus that unwanted single coil hum and hollowness of sound.
The Yamaha Revstar range has been 4 years in the making. Inspired by London and Tokyos vintage street-racing motorbikes and taking Japans heritage of engineering excellence, and Yamahas 50-year legacy of guitar craftsmanship, they deliver a unique design and feature perfectly matched custom components across all models.
