So I stopped into my local guitar shop for some Tele bits and wound up buying a new Yamaha Revstar 820CR instead...

The fit/finish is impeccable and the tone terrific; better than my last Les Paul. Sustain for days

The range seems to be very good value, and for those in the GTA, Kaos Music has a special buy going on a batch of them, with some really great prices - special thanks to Lou for setting it up just the way I like it

Reviews have generally been positive, and very complimentary.

Handsome instrument. Use it in the best of health.

Simple layout with a bit of style. I like how the pickguard is contoured in the shape of the body and the tone controls are not those cheap looking plastics you see on most guitars today. It also comes is a steel rust colour which is a dark red. (for Cheezyridr)

MSRP is around ~$2400 CAD, but with the promo I paid just over $1100 including HST.

They have a couple of the RevStar 420s (one red, one blue), which are only $429 on special, and they're a ton of guitar for the money

There is, or was a 420 for sale here locally on Kijiji for $400.
Unused apparently, won in a contest.

I like these a lot, great looking guitar, congrats!

Looks sharp, and my kind of control preference too. I've also always liked the trinity of tuning forks symbol.

I played a Yamaha like that at cosmo. Couldn't belive the weight of it.

It was $5k or $6k and was blinged out.
