Revstar II refines the look, sound, and feel of Yamaha's original Revstar guitar series. The RSS20 is available in four cafe racer-inspired finishes and features a chambered body and carbon-reinforced neck -- developed using Yamaha's exclusive Acoustic Design process to enhance tone, reduce weight, and ensure optimal balance without sacrificing resonance. Alnico V humbucking pickups combined with a 5-position pickup selector and a passive push/pull Focus Switch provide uncommon versatility from a two-pickup guitar. A deluxe gig bag is included.

Verified Customer zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
Honestly I have had terrible experiences buying guitars from zZounds.Bought a Gibson Les Paul,a USA Fender Tele that were total crap.This guitar cost 2 to 3 times less and out of the box was actually playable has nothing seriously wrong with it.The tuners are sorta garbage,the nut is cut better than either the Fender or Gibson I bought from zZounds were but is plastic would sound better with bone or tusq.The fretwork is not best I've ever seen,but better than most.Shame on the big companies, for $799 Yamaha hit a grand slam and they can't make a $2000 guitar quality.Its really a pretty decent solid guitar.
