Yamaha Announces Five New Revstar Models

Yamaha has announced five new additions to its Revstar Series. The new models all feature maple and mahogany bodies, three-piece mahogany necks and Yamaha's push-pull "dry switch," which makes it possible to pull single-coil tone from a humbucking pickup. 

You can check out the new models below:

RS820CR (MSRP: $1,549)

From the company: Designed to race from coffee shop to coffee shop on the streets of London in the 1960s, Café Racer bikes were high-performance racers stripped down to their bare essentials, but still reflected the style of their owner. The RS820 captures that spirit of total focus on performance and cannot be fully appreciated until it is taken out for a test drive.

Features include: Hand-brushed satin (steel wool) finish; humbucking pickups/Alnico V; aluminum pickguard; TonePros AVT-II bridge.

The style, feel and sound of the RS702B are unmistakably classic, but no detail was simply left to tradition. Its custom-voiced pickups, Bigsby vibrato, inlays inspired by our 1970s "Super Fighter" series and elegant gloss finish combine timeless inspiration with modern prestige.

Features include: P-90 single-coil pickups/Alnico V; Bigsby B50.
