Exciting news from Yamaha. They have launched the new Revstar electric guitars.

Although taking rather unusual design cues from motorcycles (according to Yamaha themselves), the eight new models are quite interesting with features like matt hardware, some Bigsby equipped models, and Dry Switch coil split system.

The new guitars look similar to the Yamaha SA2000 and will also appeal fans of Santana/PRS shaped guitars.

Prices range from US$629 to US$1549. Let’s hope they gain some popularity here in SG.
