Ok guys you will think I am crazy but here is my story. I own few pacificas and Gibson and PSR and Custom Strats. Last two years I am using Yamaha Pacifica 012 as my primary guitar. I picked it from my friend and I liked it so much and can't stop playing it. I will show up in studio with it and producent will laugh till he hear the sound this guitar have. If you don't trust me just go in music store and try this guitar. Also it stays in tune forever and you can mess with tremolo and everything. So begginer or pro just try this guitar and you will see I am not lying.

Its an OK guitar. There's not really anything wrong with it, but even a beginner will find themselves wanting something better. Its neck is my main complaint, it is very narrow, and leaves my fingers very cramped on open chords. The action is also not very good, its fairly high, and even with .10's I can't lower it to a comfortable level. Fortunately, it sounds pretty good and the finish look fantastic, but that doesn't make up or the fact that this is the most uncomfortable strat I've ever played. All in all, a decent beginner guitar but a few more dollars will yield a far better guitar.

    Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

    This was my first guitar, and it has been a great choice. I wasn't sure if I was going to continue playing, so I didn't want to spend a lot of money. Seven years later, I'm still going strong. I have acquired a few nicer guitars, but my old Pac012 is my knock-around guitar and stays in the living room, where it is always within reach. It gets played every day. It stays in tune and has a nice feel. For an inexpensive guitar, it does a great job.

        Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

        been playing for over thirty years....wanted a strat copy style with humbucker bridge for wide range of tone options....leaves the others in its category behind! tuners could be better but overall when you factor in price its a great quality instrument worthy of much more money! skip the squires, this ones a winner!

        A once great guitar bites the dust

        Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

        The original Pacifica's from '91 - '92 had an aluminum core in the neck joint. I remember how turned on I was when I first heard my Pacifica through a Super Reverb using a Boss OD. Such warmth, rich sustain. The body resonated in a way that you felt connected, and it made you want to play better, because of that tone. This guitar and all the rest of them pale in comparison, but they do play and sound well, despite this major modification. If you can find one of those earlier models, don't hesitate for a moment to buy it. You'll be glad you did.

        Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

        This is the first brand of electiric guitars I have owned;I am still using it! My main guitar for recording and live performance is the same brand but souped up a little bit. I have another one just like this though. Prefect for the begginer, and good for the pros! The price is cheap for what you get!I can get any sound I need from this guitar. It works well with Plus E-bow. Good rockin!

        Not as good as the EG series

        Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

        This is a decent guitar, especially for beginners. It looks pretty good. It is not, however, as good as the EG series yamaha guitars which were amazing and cheaper than this guitar. I would still recommend this axe for beginners. It's just a great guitar and brand to start with.

        Awesome Playability

        By J-Ro

        from Commerce, mi

        Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

        *Note* - (I can not testify as to the quality and longevity of this instrument. Only to my first impressions on playing it one time, during a long, hard, jam at a guitar shop).Pros: This guitar has a serious neck for soloing. If you do blues/rock like me, I can tell you, this guitar will do it. This guitar has great sustain for what it is, I swear. The tonality is superb on the neck and middle setting. Stayed in tune.Cons: The tone of the bridge leaves a bit to be desired. Also, it did come out of tune once, but it was a minor adjustment.Ah, for the money, it is worth it, I'd say.

        Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

        I bought this guitar as a few years ago. I've since moved on, but this was a great guitar to start with. Nice action, decent tone for blues or rock, and it stays in tune forever. The 3 1/2 stars for quality and features are intended as a negative, just an honest rating for an entry level guitar. It looks decent too.
