30% Off... the manufacturer's suggested retail price...

Inspired by vintage motorcycles and designed from the ground up with feedback from real players, the Yamaha RS502 solidbody electric guitar promises to add a distinct vibe to your guitar collection. Two P-90 single-coil pickups are onboard to deliver punchy, chiming tone, while a push-pull Dry switch allows you to cut lows for even more sonic snap. Factor in a smooth-playing mahogany neck, topped with a rosewood fretboard and jumbo frets, and you have a guitar that's built to perform with the Yamaha RS502.

Yamaha Revstar RS502 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:

  • 3-Piece mahogany Neck
  • Maple and Mahogany Body
  • P-90 Single Coil Pickups/Alnico V
  • Push-Pull "Dry Switch"
  • Adjustable Wraparound Bridge

Add snap and presence with a push-pull Dry switch

Yamaha's innovative Dry switch on the RS502 gives you the tone-shaping capabilities of a coil tap circuit, even though the RS502 already has single-coil pickups. The push-pull Dry switch is actually a passive filter that cuts out low frequencies, giving your tone even more clarity and punch to cut through the mix.

Yamaha-designed P-90 pickups deliver iconic tone

As far as Music Experience is concerned, every guitarist should have a guitar loaded with P-90 single-coil pickups in their collection. You get the snap and spank of a single-coil pickup, but with the girth and low-mid richness that you'd expect from a humbucker. The custom-designed P-90 pickups in the RS502 utilize Alnico V magnets, a silver baseplate, and plain enamel wire, creating a clear, vintage-inspired tone with plenty of bite. Set your tube amplifier at its breakup point, and you'll be able to take the RS502 from clean and chiming to blazing overdrive just with the volume knob.

Copious sustain from set-neck construction

The mahogany neck on the Yamaha RS502 is set directly into the maple/mahogany body. This maximizes vibrational transfer for outstanding sustain and helps enhance note definition too. Clean tones ring out like a bell, while overdriven tones can sustain for days.

Revstar series guitars are packed with personality

Inspired by the bold styling of London and Tokyo's vintage street-racing motorbikes, Yamaha's Revstar series of electric guitars features dramatic curves, character-packed custom-wound pickups, and delightfully muscular tone. Each model in the Revstar lineup is full of its own distinct personality. These instruments exude a distinctiveness as unique as the guitarists who play them.

What Yamaha Says...

Japanese minimalist style is simple to describe but hard to capture. With just enough of everything you need, and nothing that you don’t, the RS502 is exactly what it should be–beautifully simple.
