One word "Yamaha"
Kole, 27.06.2020
Top quality guitar. This is the fourth guitar of this favorite brand I own and I can say that Yamaha almost always gives more than it costs. The design of this guitar is absolutely beautiful. The ratio of the neck and body of the guitar is perfectly balanced. The right hand is naturally positioned in the right place thanks to the ergonomics of the guitar. The finish is great. The hardware is excellent quality and the only small complaint is the tuners that are good quality but not lockable. When you pick up this guitar you have the feeling that it is a more expensive instrument than it actually is. The pickups have a weaker output than I expected but they are perfectly balanced and the dry-switch does a great job. Pickups give a duller and fat sound. The electronics work great and precisely, by reducing the volume the basic tone remains without significant changes. I know a lot of musicians and everyone who saw my guitar was delighted, first with the look and the quality itself and then of course with the sound. To conclude: This is a great guitar that gives a lot for investment unlike some other brands that sell fog with strong marketing. Great job Yamaha !!!

Wunderschönes Design, beste Verarbeitung und sehr gute Spielbarkeit. Die Pickups gefallen mir ausserordentlich gut. Auch der Dryswitch ist sehr Praktisch. Das einzige was mir für den Preis fehlt, sind Lockingtuner. Alles in allem bin ich aber sehr zufrieden.

Parfaite

Voulant me remettre à l'électrique j'ai choisi d'entrer dans le presque tout haut de gamme avec la série Revstar de Yamaha.

Sortie de son carton et de la housse fournie, on tombe immédiatement sous le charme. La qualité est au rendez-vous et le rendu est sublime. L'effet mat de la table avec le corps brillant est tout simplement magnifique, on est dans le souci du détail. Le “pickguard” est d'une couleur et d'un toucher très agréable. Point de vue esthétique rien à redire.

La touche est propre et les frettes parfaitement réglées. Les cordes Elixir Nanoweb préinstallées sont aussi de bonne facture. En revanche, en raison sans doute du plus faible diapason par rapport à une stratocaster, le sustain est légèrement raccourci.

Le bouton du dry-switch permet d'atténuer les basses ou les aigues en fonction du réglage et c'est particulièrement pratique. Concernant les micros, on a de très bonnes basses rondes avec celui du manche et un rendu plus brillant et claquant au niveau du chevalet.

Sans doute dû au bois de qualité en acajou, la guitare fait tout de même son poids et est particulièrement lourde ! Mais on ne lui en voudra pas...
