Matt Ramey
"Ramey describes the music of his band, Gods of Harvest, as ""catchy songs with psychedelic, experimental elements and wall of sound rock outs."" His pedalboard has an Electro-Harmonix POG 2, Boss TU-2 Tuner, Boss SD-1, Keeley-modded Boss BD-2 Blues Driver, Blackout Effectors Deluxe Fix'd Fuzz, Strymon Lex, Strymon Blue Sky, Moog Cluster Flux, Strymon Timeline, Moog Freq Box, Moog Ring Mod, and Moog Analog Delay. One of the band's singers controls the pedals on the stand, which he says, ""Allows for some really fun experimentation that I wouldn't be able to do otherwise."""

Check out part I, II, and III!

A chambered body and enhanced switching make this affordable Revstar light and loaded with tones.

Scads of cool tone combinations. Articulate pickups. Relatively light. Balanced and comfortable. Well built.

Some P-90 players might miss the extra grit the Revstar trades for articulation.

While the Yamaha name is famous in circles beyond the guitar world, they’ve made first-class guitars since the 1960s. And while they don’t unleash new releases with the frequency of some larger guitar brands, every now and then they come down the mountain with a new axe that reminds us of their capacity to build great electric 6-strings. In 2015, Yamaha introduced the first generation Revstar. With a handsome aesthetic inspired by the company’s motorcycle racing heritage, the Revstar combined sweet playability and vintage style touchstones. This year, Yamaha gave the Revstar an overhaul—including body chambering, updated pickups, and new switching. What’s impressive is how these alterations enhance the already impressive playability and versatility of the original.
