Classic Tonewoods

The pairing of Mahogany body and Maple top has been a classic wood combination for electric guitars since 1952, and for good reason. Mahogany has a warm character with a full and rich mid-range and subdued treble; offering a thick, smooth tone. This is balanced with the Maple top, which adds brightness and top-end clarity. In combination, they produce a full and rounded tone with chunky lows, punchy mids and crisp highs.

Effortless Playability & Performance

The neck of a guitar is your main point of contact, so how it feels can make or break a guitar. The Revstar Standard has a comfy 3-piece Mahogany neck with a satin finish. Satin finishes are beloved by guitar players for their silky-smooth feel that allows you to fly effortlessly up and down the neck without it feeling sticky. The neck is reinforced with carbon too, allowing the neck to stay totally rigid even with changing climates and weather conditions; making it extremely resistant to warping or bowing.

The neck is topped with a Rosewood fingerboard. Rosewood has a velvety-soft feel that simply glides under the fingers, and it adds warmth and mid-range to the tone that smooths out the high-end for a raunchy, warm tone.

Powerful & Versatile Tone

This Revstar Standard comes fitted with a pair of Yamaha's proprietary VH5 Alnico V humbuckers. Alnico V has a punchier tone than Alnico II, giving it a fat clean tone and raunchy overdrive. As the name suggests, humbuckers cancel the hum that is inherent in single-coil pickups. It also changes the tone; providing a fatter and more powerful sound. Humbuckers offer smooth, mellow cleans and beefy overdrive.

What's more, with the push-pull "Focus Switch" you can engage a passive boost to give your pickups some extra grit for when you really want to push your sound over the edge!
