See All Yamaha Solid Body Electric Guitars

Finely crafted in Japan with versatile electronics.

In a land of cookie-cutter guitar shapes the Yamaha Revstar RSP20CR Solidbody Electric Guitar stands out from rest. Finely crafted in Japan, it's packed with cool style and desirable appointments. It features a dual-cutaway mahogany body with a maple top and a set mahogany neck. The comfortable neck is thick with a fat profile that adds tons of sustain and a familiar feel.

Yamaha choose some great-sounding electronics for this guitar that center around a pair of Yamaha VH7+ Alnico pickups humbuckers. Wired to a master volume and a master tone with a push/pull dry switch to bypass the tone circuit setting, these pickups are powerful and versatile.

Satin nickel hardware is used throughout including die-cast Yamaha tuners, control knobs, wraparound Tonepros bridge, and the antique pickup covers on the humbuckers. The Revstar RSP20CR ships with a nice hardshell case.

    Comments about Yamaha Revstar RSP20CR Solidbody Electric Guitar:

    The Revstar RSP20CR is the "professional" model of the range, and I could not be any happier with mine. This is my favorite guitar.

    Simply put, the build quality of my RSP20CR is incredible. This of course is the top of the Revstar range, the Made in Japan model. I've owned guitars from every major manufacturer you can name, and this guitar stands up with the best of any I have ever owned. The quality of this guitar stands right alongside that of a premium guitar from any of the American makes.

    If you're wondering what you get over and above the Revstar 820, with the RSP20CR you get upgraded pickups which are exclusive to this instrument, Yamaha says they have a silver backing. This guitar also has a tusq nut, comes with hard case, and it has had the Initial Response Acceleration treatment, which Yamaha says gives the instrument a mature sound starting when new. It also comes with a certificate hand signed and numbered by the builder. There's also an exclusive finish option, the matte black. All these are small improvements over the 820 which make the RSP20 feel like a pro quality instrument in your hands, but the main things you're getting are the upgraded pickups and the made in Japan quality. I also would say that the hardware on this instrument is absolutely first rate, from the tuners to the TonePros bridge, everything about this guitar says it's top quality.

    The dry switch is a nice feature, this is much more useful than a coil tap for me - it filters some of the lows out to give you some extra cut-through. Basically it lets you create single-coil like tones without losing output or losing the benefits of hum canceling. Really nice and thoughtful feature.

    I can't recommend this enough. Yamaha is the most underrated manufacturer out there, and after they have basically taken over woodwind and brasswind with their amazing quality in orchestral instruments, it's no surprise that Yamaha is becoming a force in guitars and amplifiers. Love, love this guitar.
