Erstklassige Gitarre, Preis-Leistung top!
Nils Tele Fan, 24.07.2019
Ich bin eigentlich immer schon, wie so viele, ein ziemlich konservativer Fan der traditionellen 3 Designs T-Style, S-Style und LP-Style, aber die Revstars haben mich seit ihrer Einführung vor ein paar Jahren mit ihrem coolen Retro-Style doch gereizt.
Dann kam ich über die "That Pedal Show" zum britischen Blues-Player Chris Buck, der Endorser und Spieler einer Revstar ist, u.a. der neuen Modelle.
Beim Durchstöbern hat mich dieses Modell mit der Kombination aus LP-Style Konstruktion, P90's und der Optik direkt angesprochen. 2 Tage später war sie auch schon da.

Der erste positive Eindruck hat sich jetzt nach einer guten Woche nur noch verstärkt - ein erstklassiges Instrument mit guter Verarbeitung, sehr vielfältigen Ton-Optionen und toller Bespielbarkeit.

Die Verarbeitung liegt m.E. deutlich über dem von aktuellen Gibson LP's in der Preisklasse bis 2.000 Euro. Schöne Hölzer, klasse matte Hardware mit hoher Wertanmutung und Präzision was die Tuner betrifft, nahezu perfekte Lackierung...
Die per Hand bearbeitete, matt lackierte Decke ist natürlich ein toller Hingucker. Dazu hätte meiner Meinung nach auch ein matter, offenporiger Korpus aus dem schönen Mahagoni gut gepasst, inkl. mattem Hals.
Die Einstellung war die beste seit langem aus dem Karton, man musste wirklich nichts mehr ändern. Meine Gitarre ist übrigens die von Thomanns Internetseite für dieses Modell, lt. beigelegtem Foto, also wurde hier ggf. schon Hand angelegt...

Die Gitarre hat unglaubliches Sustain und schwingt und klingt auch ohne Strom schon sehr offen und resonant. Dies wird dann durch die P90 nur noch "verstärkt", sehr tighte Bässe, trockene Midrange und glockig singende Höhen. Sie fühlt sich für mich am besten im leichten bis mittleren Crunch am wohlsten.

Auch mit meinem Pedalboard versteht sie sich perfekt, inkl. Zvex Box of Rock & 59 Sound, Origin Revival Drive, Lovepedal Les Liusund diversen Modulationen. Der Charakter der Gitarre bleibt immer durch die offenen P90 sehr präsent.

Die einzigen Wermutstropfen sind das doch recht hohe Gewicht (konstruktionsbedingt), was aber noch halbwegs ok ist, sowie etwas hervorstehende Bundstäbchen, was bei günstigeren Gitarren mit gebundenem Griffbrett häufig vorkommt. Letzteres gibt sich aber schon über Zeit, vor allem bei den jetzigen Temperaturen und hohen Feuchtigkeitsgeraden.

Alles in allem ein tolles Teil, was zunächst zu meinen absoluten Lieblingen gehören wird. Absolute Kaufempfehlung!
