Yamaha Revstar RSS02T BL: The Café Racer-Inspired Electric Guitar

The Yamaha Revstar RSS02T BL embodies the spirit of café racer motorcycles—stripped-down performance machines customized to reflect the personality of their riders. This guitar balances Japanese innovation and traditional artisanship, with modern features that enhance playability, versatility, and tone, while the design pays homage to classic Yamaha electric guitars dating back to 1966.

Inspired Design with Modern Enhancements

Revstar Standard guitars feature chambered bodies, designed to sculpt tone and reduce weight, and carbon reinforcement in the neck to improve vibration transfer. This unique construction not only provides a resonant, rich tone but also makes the guitar lighter and more comfortable to play. The hanko stamp on each Revstar guitar, used in place of a signature in Japan, is a seal of approval that signifies quality and craftsmanship.

Versatile and Powerful Tone

The Revstar RSS02T is equipped with P90-style single-coil pickups custom-designed by Yamaha, using Alnico V magnets for powerful and nuanced tone. The 5-position pickup selector, similar to the Revstar Professional series, includes a subtle phase shift on positions 2 and 4, offering a fresh take on classic "in-between" sounds. The push/pull tone control activates a passive boost, mimicking the effect of overwound pickups with darker highs, increased mids and lows, and an aggressive character.
