Well made, all rounder workhorse.
GearHead:), 08.11.2019
Overall this is a great instrument, even for seasoned players.

This is a workhorse guitar, built to a high standard with all switching and knobs feeling robust and smooth. I attached a Bigsby to it and it is a great blues machine. However, it is more than capable of doing the higher gain stuff too (if you like a fat gain sound).

Fretwork is nicely dressed and the nut is cut well, with no fret buzz issues.

The only critique is that the volume control pot makes the guitar either off or full on. There is no appreciable volume swell when ramping up the volume with the knob.

Yamaha Revstar RS420 Fired Red
Roysh, 25.05.2020
Eine tolle Gitarre! Ich habe schon früher eine Revstar gekauft, allerdings eine mit 2 P90 PU's, und wollte sehen, ob die Humbucker-Version in der Preisklasse der RS420 ok ist. Das Griffbrett geht in Richtung "slim taper", was mir persönlich sehr gefällt. Die Verarbeitung ist einwandfrei und die Lackierung des Korpus makellos. Der Sound geht in Richtung Les Paul, ist allerdings schärfer als der der Gibson. Auch das gefällt mir sehr, denn der Revstar geht so das bassige Gemurmel einer Les Paul ab. Trotz der relativen Schärfe des Tons hat die Revstar das perkussiv holzige Anschlagsverhalten, das ich persönlich sehr schätze. Insgesamt erhält man hier ein vollwertiges Instrument mit einem sehr guten Preis-Leistungs Verhältnis. Für mich hat sich der Umstieg von hochpreisigen Gitarren der Firmen Gibson und Fender auf günstigere Gitarren bisher gelohnt. Klasse Gitarre, die Revstar.

Revstar 420
Philippe2616, 25.04.2016
Une finition irréprochable et des micros rock mais plutôt modernes : ça sonne propre sur le clean. Une mention spéciale pour les tuners agréables à manipuler et très précis et pour le manche très agréable.

Deux bémols mais vraiment mineurs :
- les attaches sangle demandent des sangles pas trop épaisses. En l'occurrence avec une sangle fender j'en ai bavé ...
- le bouton master tone offre très peu de résistance à nla rotation (contrairement au bouton volume qui lui est OK)

Au global je suis très content de cet achat. Il est vrai qu'avec Yamaha on est jamais déçu !

Gute Qualität zu einem fairen Preis
Lilo100, 22.03.2019
Das ist meine 2. Yamaha nach einer Pacifica als Einsteigergerät.
Nutze sie nur als zu Hause im Hobbyraum.
Bin wiederum sehr zufrieden mit der Qualität und dem Klang.
Zeitlos im Design und passt gut zu meinem Blackstar 5HT.
Kann man nichts falsch machen auch wenn da "nur" Yamaha
auf dem Instrument steht. :-)
