As seen in Guitar Girl Magazine June 2018 issue.

Recently, I had the pleasure of playing the REVSTAR RS720B from Yamaha. One thing I always look for in a guitar is its flexibility to play in different settings. My first interaction with this guitar was playing it in my home studio, where my Fender Ultimate Chorus and BOSS ME-50 setup were ready to jam with the REVSTAR. Right away, I felt the tone of this guitar fit my needs and immediate desires. From a solid body, Bigsby bridge, and mahogany 3-piece neck, this guitar immediately made me excited to play every song on my band’s touring setlist.

When I play on tour, I switch between clean channels and heavy distortion with a little bit of delay. Having a guitar that naturally has a clean tone aids in the overall clean sound of your guitar’s performance, especially when switching to crunchy distorted sounds mid-song. The next test was to see if the guitar sounded just as good live and with a full band as it did alone and in my home studio.

Right before my band left to headline Love Your Rebellion’s BabeFest in Fort Myers and St. Petersburg, Florida, I decided to take this guitar with me to rehearsal. To my pleasant surprise, it sounded AMAZING up against a full band. If you have ever seen my band, the TxLips, live, you know how loud we can be when we are rockin’ the stage. I was very excited to pack this guitar before getting on the airplane to Florida because I just knew it would sound great on my band’s song “The Lost One.” This song lives in Drop D, so I often rely on a guitar with a nice bottom and neck humbucker that can give me that heaviness I look for.

Overall, I 100 percent love this guitar. I give it a thumbs up and highly recommend it for anyone who plays almost any style of music, except metal. You won’t regret it!

Street price $899.00
