Yamaha RS502T Revstar Electric Guitar Tailpiece Black

Stand-Out Revstar Design

The Revstar range of guitars takes inspiration from Café-Racer motorcycles of the London scene in the '60s. The stylish outline, specially-chosen colour combinations, and elegantly understated design features create a guitar with the visual appeal of a classic instrument, yet with a modern edge that will really stand out on stage. The double cutaway design, minimalist headstock, aluminium tailpiece, and distinct scratch-plate come together to create a guitar with a quiet-confidence and mature aesthetic that wouldn't look out of place with classic guitars from 50 years ago.

Comfortable Body Contours

Despite the vintage-inspiration, the Revstar RS502T is super-comfortable to play, courtesy of its body contours. A tummy-cut and deep forearm contour means you'll be able to play long into the night without any discomfort, whether stood up or sat down. The set-neck design with uniquely ergonomic neck joint also creates a smooth playing-feel when you're reaching the top frets for those high-range solo moments.

Fast-Playing Neck Specification

The RS502T's neck has a thoroughly modern playing feel to enable easy soloing and rhythm work. The rosewood fingerboard creates a smooth playing surface for the left hand and the 22 jumbo frets provide incredible control over the strings for bending and vibrato techniques. The RS520T's double cutaway body and smooth set-neck joint provide no barriers to the top frets, while the fingerboard has a very modern 13-3/4'' radius which is only slightly rounded to enable easy string bends and excellent balance across the strings.

Resonant Mahogany Body and Neck

The body and neck are crafted from mahogany for a warm and resonant sound with great sustain. This tonewood is often chosen for classic rock and blues guitars due to its warmth and mid-focus, yet it performs equally well in blues, country, jazz, and many more styles. A maple top enhances the guitar's bright overtones, bringing out the top-end of your sound and helping harmonics ring with clarity.

Versatile VP5 Pickups

The Revstar RS502T is mounted with two VP5 pickups. These units recreate the sound of the classic P-90 design, sitting somewhere between humbuckers and single-coils with their tonal response. This gives you the ideal blend between humbucker bite and single coil nuance, so you can get a cutting overdriven sound that will clean up when you roll back the volume. A 3-way switch gives access to powerful bridge-position sounds, mellow neck-position tones, and the bright combined-coil sound. This combination is ideal for multiple genres of music and will let you explore many different sounds.

Dry Switch

An additional Dry Switch is accessed via the Push/Pull tone control and provides the sound of a split-humbucker for a delicate single-coil tone. It achieves this using a passive filter which is designed to give the perfect frequency response. By filtering out the low frequencies, this switch gives the punch and clarity of a single-coil minus the associated hum and often "hollow"-sounding tone from splitting a humbucker. This gives you a far more balanced and usable single coil tone, radically expanding the tonal potential of this guitar.
