In Stock!

Add a Vintage Voice to Your Guitar Collection

Yamaha primed the RS720B solidbody electric guitar for expressive, clear, bell-like tone, with its Bigsby vibrato tailpiece and a pair of overwound, low-output pickups. But make no mistake, the RS720B will definitely make your amplifier growl and roar if you hit it hard. The sonic flexibility is enhanced by the push-pull Dry circuit, which gives you single-coil-like snap without introducing additional noise. Combining a comfortable body, smooth-playing neck, and a rich voice, the Yamaha RS720B definitely deserves a place in your guitar collection.

Yamaha RS720B Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Clear, ringing, low-output tone from VT5 humbucking pickups
  • Add snap and presence with a push-pull Dry switch
  • Copious sustain from set-neck construction
  • Revstar series guitars are packed with personality
Clear, ringing, low-output tone from VT5 humbucking pickups

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 VT5 humbuckers in the RS720B employ Alnico V magnets, a brass baseplate, and underwound polyurethane wire. This gives the RS720B a clear, ringing, low-output tone just like some of the most beloved vintage guitars ever created.

Add snap and presence with a push-pull Dry switch

Yamaha's innovative Dry switch on the RS720B 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 RS720B is set directly into the mahogany body. Guitarists at Sweetwater 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.

Yamaha RS720B Solidbody Electric Guitar Features:
  • Vintage-inspired guitar with comfortable rear body and front arm contours
  • Set-in neck construction enhances sustain and note definition
  • VT5 humbucking pickups deliver clear, ringing, low-output tone
  • Push-pull Dry switch cuts low frequencies for more clarity and definition
  • Smooth playability thanks to jumbo frets and a medium neck profile
Expressive vintage tone awaits in the Yamaha RS720B.

Nice design, but, the quality control from Yamaha could be better in terms of Finish and control function. I have had better quality on some cheap practice and travel guitars I have purchased. I expected more for the price. Lack of quality is truly holding this guitar back from being a very good instrument.Specific details include blemishes or scuffs on the wood, controls, and bridge. Push/pull tone cut had an acentric motion and wobble. Problems seem to occur even on the replacement guitars which indicate it is a manufacturing issue.
