Yamaha Revstar RS720B with Bigsby Sunburst, 2021


Instrument Categories: , ,

From its launch in 2015, the Yamaha Revstar line has included a number of high quality instruments that don’t quite look like anything else.

The model seen here, a Yamaha Revstar RS720B (the B specifies a Bigsby B50 and Tune-O-Matic bridge), seems to have been dropped from the 2022 lineup but appeared in the 2018 USA Yamaha Guitars catalog. This example apparently dates to June 2021 and was made in a new factory in Indonesia, like all other non-Pro line Revstars – the Pro line is made in Japan. It is i overall very good condition, with only light wear. It plays very well, is well balanced and comfortable.

Fit, finish, component and build quality are all high. Like other Yamaha products – not just guitars – the design is well thought out and executed.

The Yamaha Revstar RS720B features a Flame-Maple capped Mahogany body and a 3-piece Mahogany neck with Indian Rosewood fingerboard. The hardware is satin finished, with a set of locking tuners at the head, Tune-O-Matic style bridge with a licensed Bigsby B50 tailpiece. The ‘licensed’ text on the frame casting indicates that this unit has metric sizing, unlike the otherwise equivalent US made B5. This distinction has meaning when third-party Bigsby accessories are considered – most are built for the US models.

The pickups are VT5+ Alnico V models which suggest Gretsch-style models, controlled by a three-way switch with Master Volume and Tone control; the Tone control is a push-pull ‘dry switch’ allowing a coil split function.

The headstock is relatively narrow, allowing for shallow angles from the nut to the tuners, which can aid in tuning stability during Bigsby use.

The original gig bag is included.
