Inspired by the 1974 Yamaha Super Flighter guitar, the RS620 solidbody electric guitar combines distinctive looks with cutting tone. The mahogany body and flame maple top are contoured for gigging comfort, while the medium neck profile and jumbo frets deliver smooth, precise playability. A pair of Yamaha VH5 humbucking pickups serves up a wide tonal range, further enhanced by the push-pull Dry switch that enables single-coil-like tones. With excellent craftsmanship, distinguished tone, and great playability, the Yamaha RS620 is an outstanding guitar in its class.

    • Maple and Mahogany Body, Flame Maple Laminated
    • Hand-Brushed Satin (Steel Wool) Finish

    Yamaha VH5 humbucking pickups for articulate, powerful, well-balanced tone

    Yamaha spent a lot of time fine-tuning the pickups in the Revstar series - they tested over 50 prototypes before settling on the perfect combination of wire, windings, magnets, and baseplates for each guitar model in the series. The VH5 humbuckers in the RS620 employ Alnico V magnets, a silver baseplate, and heavy formvar wire. This gives the RS620 a bright and powerful sound that blends the richness and character of vintage electronics with the intensity and clarity of modern electronics.

    Add snap and presence with a push-pull Dry switch

    Yamaha's innovative Dry switch on the RS620 gives you the tone-shaping capabilities of a coil tap circuit, while maintaining the noise-free operation of your humbuckers. 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. You'll achieve the same enhanced snap and twang that you'd expect from a single-coil pickup, without introducing any noise into your signal chain.

    Copious sustain from set-neck construction

    The mahogany neck on the Yamaha RS620 is set directly into the mahogany body. Guitarists at Music Experience like the set-neck design because it maximizes vibrational transfer throughout the guitar for impressive 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...

    Inspired by the 1974 Yamaha Super Fighter guitar, the RS620 takes its design cues from a cult classic, combining them in perfect balance with the individual styling and custom-built vibe of the Revstar concept. Its roots definitely run deep, but this isn’t your dad’s guitar.
