Dual P90 pickups meet 5-way switching for improved sound shaping.

The Yamaha Revstar Standard RSS02T chambered electric guitar brings both vintage style and modern playability to the stage and studio. Its sleek, retro-inspired design features a chambered mahogany body with a figured maple top, producing balanced resonance and sustain. The carbon-reinforced 3-piece mahogany neck provides stability and excellent tone, while the rosewood fingerboard with 22 jumbo frets enables smooth, fast playing across the neck. With its dual P90 pickups and 5-way switching, the Revstar RSS02T offers versatile tone-shaping capabilities to craft your signature sound. The gloss polyurethane finish and chrome-plated tailpiece add stylish, cafe racer-inspired esthetics. Plug in the Revstar RSS02T and let its resonant tone and smooth playability inspire your performances.

Sleek, Retro-Inspired Design With Chambered Mahogany Body and Maple Top

The Revstar RSS02T channels vintage style with its sleek double-cutaway chambered mahogany body and eye-catching figured maple top. The chambered construction lightens the weight while still providing balanced resonance and sustain. Combined with its smooth gloss polyurethane finish and chrome-plated tailpiece, it delivers on esthetics while also optimizing tone and playability. The Revstar RSS02T's sleek, cafe racer-inspired design will turn heads on stage while also feeling comfortable and resonant when playing.

Carbon-Reinforced 3-Piece Mahogany Neck For Stability and Tone

The Revstar RSS02T features a 3-piece mahogany neck reinforced with carbon for excellent stability and bright, focused tone. The carbon reinforcement allows the neck to resist warping and twisting, keeping action and intonation accurate over time. Mahogany produces a balanced tone across the tonal spectrum, with excellent clarity in the mids and lows. Combined with its comfortable medium C neck profile, the RSS02T provides smooth, stable playability up and down the neck. The carbon-reinforced mahogany neck gives you the stability and tone you need for consistent performance.

Dual P90 Pickups With 5-Way Switching Offers Versatile Tone-Shaping

To expand your tonal palette, the Revstar RSS02T comes equipped with a pair of P90 single-coil pickups that can be blended via the 5-way pickup switch. From clean, sparkling tones to growling leads, the P90 pickups capture a wide range of sounds perfect for various music styles. The 5-way switch allows you to blend the pickups in different combinations - from the neck pickup alone to both together. This versatile switching, along with the Focus passive boost, provides excellent tone-shaping control to craft your ideal sound. Dial in everything from vintage rock crunch to modern high-gain tones with the Revstar's flexible pickup configuration.

Rosewood Fingerboard With 22 Jumbo Frets for Smooth Playability

The RSS02T features a rosewood fingerboard outfitted with 22 jumbo frets for fast, smooth playability across the neck. Rosewood offers a round, warm tone with excellent note definition. The jumbo frets provide a comfortable playing feel, enabling easy bending and vibrato techniques. Combined with the hand-shaped fret ends, you'll experience seamless playability that enhances your performance capabilities. The rosewood fingerboard with jumbo frets makes it easy to play fast solo lines or intricate chords with comfort and confidence.
