Yamaha RSS20 Revstar Standard 6-String Electric Guitar (Black, Right-Hand)

The Yamaha RSS20 Revstar is a 6-string electric guitar suitable for right-hand usage. It features a chambered body and carbon-reinforced neck, dual humbucking pickups, 5-way switching, and a passive Focus Switch, providing exceptional versatility.

Hanko Stamp

Used in place of a signature in Japan, the Hanko stamp on every Revstar guitar is Yamaha's seal of approval.

Chambered Body With Acoustic Design

Revstar Standard guitars feature chambered bodies designed to sculpt tone and reduce weight, with carbon reinforcement in the neck to improve vibration transfer.

5-Way Switching

Standard models offer 5-way switching. In positions 2 and 4, our circuit slightly delays the opposite pickup for a new take on classic 'in between' sounds.

Focus Switch

The push/pull Tone control activates a passive boost with an effect similar to overwound pickups—darker highs, increased mids and lows, and an aggressive character.

Choice Of Pickups

RSS20 features humbuckers, and RSS02T offers P90-style single-coils. All pickups are custom designed by Yamaha and use Alnico V magnets for powerful tone.

Guitar Sound Samples

RSS20 also features the new Focus Switch. This is a passive boost activated by a push/pull switch on the Tone control that offers darker highs and increased lows and mids.
