Yamaha Pacifica 012 MK2 Electric Guitar Red Metallic
What We Think
For a long time picking your first axe was choosing from a small selection and compromising on price over quality. As the market for budget beginner models has grown over the years Yamaha have weighed in.
The Yamaha Pacifica is a superb first electric guitar. Although this instruments price tag is low the components you get are most defiantly not. A sharply crafted alder body, three high powered ceramic pickups with HSS configuration and a traditional maple bolt on neck. With all these elements working together there a bounteous amount a tone variety ebbs for this modern take on a classic instrument. The Pacifica is an ideal first platform into to the guitar world.
Its contoured body make most positions comfortable, partnered with the double cutaway for access all the way the 24th fret and a tremolo system for fun you could ask for
The maple neck adds lovely twang blended with the alder body for body and depth to cover the spectrum of the sparkly clean and filthy leads.
If you want any more proof of the quality of this instrument Yamaha conducted a test where they left a Pacifica on roof battling again rain and wind for hours, but Mother Nature could not keep this guitar quiet and apart from some rusty string the guitar was still fully functional.
So if you’re looking for a first guitar that will last or even a good quality back up, this is one to seriously consider.
