Yamaha Revstar RSP20MB - Moonlight Blue
Yamaha’s Revstar Professional RSP20 is the flagship of the Revstar series, masterfully crafted in Yamaha’s renowned Japanese factory to serve as a shining example of all that the Revstar is capable of! This maple-topped double-cut’s lightweight chambered mahogany body is loaded with two Yamaha VH5 pickups that deliver bright and punchy tones that excel in almost any sonic application. The neck is comprised of carbon-reinforced mahogany, ensuring it will stay straight and true in even the most challenging of environments. What’s more, Yamaha equipped this Revstar with their proprietary “Focus” switch that shifts your tone’s resonant frequency and supercharges your pickup’s power. If you’re looking for a high-performance, no-nonsense axe with explosive tones, rock-solid playability, and sleek modern aesthetics, your search ends with the RSP20.
Comfortably curved Revstar body
The Revstar’s curvy lines and classic aesthetics are said to be inspired by the utilitarian British Café racer motorbikes found in 1960s-era London, adding a tough no-frills attitude to these sleek guitars. The unique double-cut chambered body was developed using Yamaha’s Acoustic Design process to optimize the Revstar’s balance, deliver a resonant tone, and reduce weight. One strum of the RSP20 is all it takes to see how Yamaha’s research paid off: the Revstar’s body is a supremely comfortable design that showcases Yamaha’s steadfast dedication to musical innovation!
Yamaha VH5 humbucking pickups for an articulate, powerful, and well-balanced tone
Yamaha spent a lot of time fine-tuning the pickups in the Revstar series — 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 RSP20 Revstar employ Alnico V magnets, a silver baseplate, and heavy formvar wire. This gives the RSP20 a bright and powerful sound that blends the richness and character of vintage electronics with the intensity and clarity of modern electronics.
Bring your sound into focus
Yamaha’s Revstar line already introduced their clarity-boosting “Dry” switch, and the RSP20 offers another distinct tonal feature to stand out from the crowd: the “Focus” switch. This dual-purpose push-pull switch adjusts the resonant frequency of your guitar’s tone and kicks up the power. When testing it out at Sweetwater, we found that it’s an incredibly versatile feature that’s just as good at achieving “rolled off” jazz tones as it is for boosting your amp into overdrive territory.
