Amazing guitar
Naf174, 10.04.2018
The Yamaha Revstar series are amazing value for money.

The fit and finish on this guitar is impeccable ! Unbelievable value for money. I really dont think they are too many other guitars available for under 500 Euros that are in the same class.

I absolutely love mine. The P90s are the nicest I have ever heard .I Often replace the pickups on my guitars to be honest but definitely wont be doing it with these ones. The neck pickup is beautifully smooth and the bridge just barks . Sounds really great with a little drive.
There is some 60hz hum of course , as with all single coil pickups , but its not excessive and the middle position is hum cancelling and completely noiseless.

Hardware is great , tuners feel solid and I love the brushed finish of the bridge . Silver pickup covers also really set off the whole look of this guitar. The nut is plastic , maybe a tusq would have been nicer for sure but still its cut well and no issues there.

The neck profile feels like a D , more than a C shape , but it is very comfortable and has a nice bit of fatness to it, although not a baseball bat by any means.
Gloss finish on the neck but absolutely not sticky at all. Nice binding on the fretboard , fretboard is rosewood and very nice quality . Jumbo frets , beautifully finished . No sharp edges and zero buzz.

Weight wise it is not all that heavy , nowhere near Les Paul territory. I have read stories also about neck dive on these models , but not true at all in my experience. The body is very nicely contoured , with a cutaway for the forearm and belly . Not overall too thick . Feels very comfortable to play

A nice added feature on these guitars is the tone knob has a push/pull function to engage a high cut filter which removes some of the bass frequency .
It really gives a nice extra brightness and to me is a much better feature than the usual coil split you might see in a humbucker model usually , which I find just lowers the output really and doesnt give a true single coil sound.

The finish is matt brushed , which is a bit prone to fingerprint smudges but thats the only negative I have really about the whole guitar. Really I think that this guitar is one that will be with me for a long time. Yamaha build really nice instruments and seem to be under rated for some reason. Anyone considering one of these guitars should just go for it . You will not be disappointed !

Absolutely stunning guitar! You may need to set it up though!
Kcrimson13, 07.06.2018
I bought this guitar having heard so many people talking about how yamaha instruments are underrated, and how great they are for their price range, I had tried some Pacificas in my local music store, and decided to give the revstar a shot. And I must say, I was not disapointed.

GOOD STUFF: From out of the box, the guitar matches perfectly with all of the specs. It feels very solid, like its been build to last, very solid craftmanship and beautiful finish (people with fingerprints issues beware though!). Marvelous playability, fast and thin neck, the p-90s sound full and are very versatile (dry switch does wonders to get a more vintage/snappy sound), I was not expecting such a good response with large amounts of distortion/fuzz (the middle position greatly reduces any "hum" the p-90s may produce).

NOT SO GOOD STUFF: the action was a little off, strings were rusty, and two of the frets were lower than the rest - ohnoo fret buzz! since I am very picky with intonation, I was expecting to pay for a full set up, and in the end it was that plus a fret dress, so not that big a deal, considering what a beast of a guitar i got in the end (i could probably have done it all myself, but Im not that comfortable messing with my precious instruments yet :)

ALL THINGS CONSIDERED, it truly is a quality instrument and my regards to Yamaha guitars. They are unmatched in terms of price/quality relationship, and I would recommend this product to anyone looking for a medium-priced-well-rounded guitar, with loads of personality. It may require some setting up when you receive it (which, honestly, should be expected when buying a guitar online...) but totally worth it!
