A few highlights from Day 2 of NAMM.


Yamaha Guitars Europe debuted their first new solidbody design in 10 years with the Revstar series of guitars at ‪‎NAMM‬. Inspired by vintage cafe-racer motorcycles and Japanese craft, the new Revstar models boast distinctive colors and a variety of handwound pickup options. Each model features a deep belly cut, hidden forearm contour, and a newly designed neck joint for playing comfort. And the available hardware appointments from unique pickup covers to raw-copper pickguards to custom floating aluminum tailpieces make these new instruments true head turners.
