Here we have a lovely & striking Yamaha Revstar RS320. She is in excellent all-round condition, with no noticeable playwear. Great action j& sound. Perfect Rock machine. A lot of guitar for the money! Does not come with case.
The Yamaha Revstar RS320 is a simple and stripped back guitar that’s main focus is great tone at a very affordable price. This guitar is unbelievable value for those who want a no-nonsense rock machine that will just work.
Using Yamaha’s new Revstar body shape this offset guitar body sits comfortably close to your body and with a fantastic amount of spacing. This makes it comfortable to play both standing up and sitting down.
The body is made out of Nato which is very similar to Mahogany in terms of tone it just looks a bit darker in colour making it perfect for these solid finishes. This gives the guitar a very warm sound, perfect for blues, rock and metal styles.
The neck is also made out of Nato but with a Rosewood fingerboard for better playability. In fact, playability is a big part of what Yamaha wanted to push with this guitar. So much so that they carved the neck to have a smooth and slim shape that you will love to play.
If you like your guitars to sound hot and heavy for hard rock and metal you will be very pleased with the pickups in this guitar. Using a set of Yamaha designed ceramic humbuckers these powerful pickups love nothing more than being thrown through a high gain amplifier.
You will notice the subtle compression of the sound and how quickly these pickups break up which are great features on a hot guitar. Just set this up going straight through your amplifier and you will likely have all the gain you will ever need.
Yamaha has a long history in the world of electric guitars. From their great line of Pacifica super ‘S’ type guitars to the powerful SG range they have great options for a wide range of musicians. RevStar now joins this list as their first completely new electric guitar in the last 20 years.
Designed in collaboration with teams from both England and Japan everything about this guitar has been thought through to the finest of details. Nothing was kept ‘just because’ or ‘that is how it is always done. Between the designers, the engineers and the players every aspect of this guitar has been looked over so you get an instrument unlike anything you have played before.
When it came to the looks and feel of the guitar Yamaha wanted something truly special. It was not just as simple as using an old body shape delivering the same sound every other manufacturer creates.
The basis for the design was London and Tokyo’s vintage street-racing motorbike scenes. This is what gave it the slightly offset shape and the smooth curves that almost look aerodynamic.
By using a world-respected design agency and some of the top people in that field they managed to create something simple and beautiful. Similar to something you would have seen before but somehow completely different at the same time.
Here’s what Yamaha say about the Revstar range
Drawing inspiration from London and Tokyo’s vintage street-racing motorbikes, Japan’s heritage of engineering excellence, and Yamaha’s 50-year legacy of guitar craftsmanship, every detail of each Revstar model has been carefully engineered to bring out the unique personality of each guitar in the lineup. From the curves and contours of the ground-up body design to the distinctive colours and finishes and custom-wound pickups that perfectly match the guitar’s character, the Revstar collection comprises a diverse lineup as the guitarists who play them.
This is Revstar – Meet your other half!
From the moment we started, Revstar had a different approach. We worked with a leading design agency and a global team of designers, to research and develop every element of the guitar, searching for the perfect balance of uniqueness and familiarity in every curve, component and colour. True design process is used in every aspect of our lives, but guitars aren’t designed this way. Until now.
Nothing made it to Revstar’s final design because “that’s how we do it”. Everything was questioned, everything was validated, everything is what we believe is right. Each detail, from the arm cut to the neck joint has been debated, argued about and chosen because it’s what the guitar needed. This isn’t change for the sake of it, it’s the search for perfection.
Every detail of Revstar is designed to make you want to play. To create something amazing. From necks designed to feel great for today’s players, to pickup tones that add a certain something different, this isn’t a guitar to be admired. It’s to be played.
