Inspired by the 1974 Yamaha Super Flighter guitar, the Yamaha Revstar RS620 solidbody electric guitar combines distinctive looks with cutting tone. The mahogany body and flame maple top are contoured for gigging comfort, while the medium neck profile and jumbo frets deliver smooth, precise playability. A pair of Yamaha VH5 humbucking pickups serves up a wide tonal range, further enhanced by the push-pull Dry switch that enables single-coil-like tones. With excellent craftsmanship, distinguished tone, and great playability, the Yamaha Revstar RS620 is an outstanding guitar in its class.
Yamaha spent a lot of time fine-tuning the pickups in the Revstar series â€” they tested over 50 prototypes before settling on the perfect combination of wire, windings, magnets, and baseplates for each guitar model in the series. The VH5 humbuckers in the RS620 employ Alnico V magnets, a silver baseplate, and heavy formvar wire. This gives the Yamaha Revstar RS620 a bright and powerful sound that blends the richness and character of vintage electronics with the intensity and clarity of modern electronics.
The mahogany neck on the Yamaha Revstar RS620 is set directly into the mahogany body. Guitarists at Sweetwater like the set-neck design because it maximizes vibrational transfer throughout the guitar for impressive sustain and helps enhance note definition too. Clean tones ring out like a bell, while overdriven tones can sustain for days.
