What's special about this item?

Feature: What it does:
3-piece mahogany neck Stable and strong; withstands the test of time
Chambered mahogany body Rich, warm, focused sound; semi-hollow tone
Rosewood fretboard Open, warm tone and smooth playing feel
Set-neck construction Solid joinery for great sustain and feel

Revstar II refines the look, sound, and feel of Yamaha's original Revstar guitar series. The left-handed RSE20L is available in two cafe racer-inspired finishes and a chambered body developed using Yamaha's exclusive Acoustic Design process to enhance tone, reduce weight, and ensure optimal balance. Dual Alnico V humbucking pickups deliver a powerful sound with a warm midrange. A push/pull Dry Switch high-pass filter built into the Tone knob provides more prominent highs and tighter bass without the decreased volume and added hum of coil-splitting.

I recently purchased this guitar from zZounds and I am really pleased with it! Cosmetically, she is very Beautiful (I bought the Black) and she looks great under the stage lights. The cutaway is extremely comfortable and provides perfect access to the upper frets. The satin neck feels wonderful and plays like butter. in chambered body is nice and light and very well balanced when hanging on the strap. She weights around 7.7 pounds and compared to my Lespaul, I can hardly tell that I just played 4 or 5 hours with her hanging on my neck. Tone: amazing, the alnico pickups sounds great, not as hot as some, but my simple remedy is to stack 2 distortion pedals and a compressor when I need the extra boost and she roars with sustain with all the notes clear as a bell. I gave her 4.5 stars only because the color choices for Leftys are limited (i love the Black) but I want to be as honest as possible. So, you get all this for a great price so what do you have to lose? Give her a test drive! Thanks Yamaha zZounds for all that you guys do!
