Product Description

Balance - a simple concept that is often difficult to achieve. The RS420 combines outstanding performance with a
character all its own to hit that elusive stylistic sweet spot, for a guitar that walks it like it talks it.
Designed from the ground up, Revstar features specially wound YGD pickups that are perfectly matched to each
guitar. More than 50 prototype pickups were tested featuring different combinations of wire, windings, magnets
and base plates. Eventually, a spec was settled on for each guitar model and the Revstar pickup series was born.
This model features VH3 pickups with Alnico V magnets and German silver baseplate for powerful, open tone.
Designed especially for Revstar, Yamaha's proprietary Dry Switch gives you the versatility of a coil split,
but with a tone that's miles ahead. Using a passive filter circuit painstakingly designed to give the perfect
frequency response, the Dry Switch filters out low frequencies to give the punch and clarity of a single coil
pickup minus the inevitable hum and hollow tone often associated with split humbucking pickups. And because it's
a filter circuit, the Dry Switch works on both humbuckers and P90s for a totally unique, usable tone.

  • YGD Pickups perfectly matched to each Guitar
