    Anybody here have one of these? I am just about ready to pull the trigger on the rs502t new and looking for some real world input on these guitars.

    By specs alone, it seems cool. set neck, mahogany body, maple cap, P90's.....

    Not played one but heard very good thing from those that have. As you say good specs for the price as usual for Yamaha. Yamaha quality build. Just be sure that the other specs suit you, like most Yams it has a very flat radius 13.75" It has jumbo frets, but it really looks good.

    They're very nice guitars indeed, I've been almost nearly tempted myself..

    Pretty cool. Neat feature with the tail piece.

    I don't personally, but my friendly neighborhood mom & pop carries them and they tempt me every time I go in. They have some of the best necks out there IMHO.

    Did you end up getting one ?

    I've played a couple of the P90 models in the past two weeks and I am now GASing bad for one. Love the look and sound of them. I've been toying with putting together a P90 strat but these are so tempting and would probably work out cheaper..

    For sure I did, and yes much cheaper. Along with a $60 debate from Yamaha. I did get the 502T. MF if you call them the can price it at $600.

    I have to say, the setup out of the box is better than my PRS SE standard that I just received from Sweetwater.

    Good luck with the GAS...

    Fancy one of these, but almost never see any on the second hand market, didn't they sell well??
    If an SG looks Batman influenced, the Revstar looks like Cylon influenced to me.

    Some on reverb but the secondary market is real close to the cost of new.

    I do not know how many are being sold new, but I can say mine won't be for sale...

    I only recorded 8 auction sales on Ebay UK last year and 1 so far this year they are starting to come up a lot on the buy it now Ebay sales often dealers. Bear in mind that these have been available for less than two years and it takes time for buyers to want to sell what they have bought. You are not getting any bargains though they are relatively close to new price. I know I have been watching for that bargain.

    I’d love to get one of these. I loved the neck on those I’ve tried.

    It's not as if people should be surprised. They've only been making super great necks for like, what, 50 years?

    About that long, yeah.
    Yammies are very underrated in general.
