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.

Bury Store  

One of the best electric guitar values for over a decade, Yamaha Pacifica guitars are well known for great tone and outstanding playability. The Pacifica Series feature comfort-contoured bodies, bolt-on neck designs, vintage-style vibratos, and 5-way switching of the H-S-S pickup configuration.

For an inexpensive yet high-quality introduction to the world of rock guitar, you’ll not find better value than the Pacifica 012.

Modelled on the best-selling Pacifica 112, the new, even more affordable 012 has a similarly contoured double-cutaway body, and the firepower of a raunchy bridge-position humbucker plus two clear-toned single-coil pickups. The five-position pickup switch allows selection of those classic between sounds, while the vibrato bridge is a well-proven vintage design with six individually adjustable saddles for accurate intonation and a slinky set-up.
