Styled in a brick burst finish, the Yamaha Revstar RS620 BRB Solidbody Electric Guitar Brick Burst is a solid-body electric guitar sporting a double-cutaway design with a small pickguard, a mahogany body with a flame-maple top. A 22-fret rosewood fingerboard sits atop the mahogany neck, and the strings are held in place by an adjustable wraparound bridge. The body features a hidden forearm contour, a deep belly cut, and neck joint which allows for easier upper-fret access.
For electronics, the RS620 is fitted with custom-wound VH5+ vintage-output humbucking pickups (VH5n+ for the neck and VH5b+ for the bridge) with satin nickel covers, along with a 3-way selector switch, and dual controls for master volume and master tone. The tone knob includes a push/pull dry switch, which filters out low frequencies to bring out the punch and clarity of a true single-coil pickup, but without the hum or hollow tone often associated with split humbucking pickups.
Yamaha VH5 humbucking pickups for articulate, powerful, 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 RS620 employ Alnico V magnets, a silver baseplate, and heavy formvar wire. This gives the Yamaha Revstar RS620 a bright and powerful sound that blends the richness and character of vintage electronics with the intensity and clarity of modern electronics.
Add snap and presence with a push-pull Dry switch
Yamaha's innovative Dry switch on the RS620 gives you the tone-shaping capabilities of a coil tap circuit, while maintaining the noise-free operation of your humbuckers. The push-pull Dry switch is actually a passive filter that cuts out low frequencies, giving your tone even more clarity and punch to cut through the mix. You'll achieve the same enhanced snap and twang that you'd expect from a single-coil pickup, without introducing any noise into your signal chain.
Copious sustain from set-neck construction
The mahogany neck on the Yamaha Revstar RS620 is set directly into the mahogany body. The set-neck design maximizes vibrational transfer throughout the guitar for impressive sustain and helps enhance note definition too. Clean tones ring out like a bell, while overdriven tones can sustain for days.
Yamaha Revstar series guitars are packed with personality
Inspired by the bold styling of London and Tokyo's vintage street-racing motorbikes, Yamaha's Revstar series of electric guitars features dramatic curves, character-packed custom-wound pickups, and delightfully muscular tone. Each model in the Yamaha Revstar lineup is full of its own distinct personality. These instruments exude a distinctiveness as unique as the guitarists who play them.
