      Comments about Yamaha PAC212V Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar:

      Based upon another review, I believe I purchased the guitar that another reviewer returned. My PAC 212V also had wobbly control knobs. But they are not attached with "coder pins" (this must mean cotter pins) which are used to lock large nuts on axles. Grease the front wheel bearings on a car, and you will be confronted with cotter pins. You don't find such things on guitars. My metal control knobs are attached with small set screws which are easily loosened with a small allen wrench that came with the guitar. I did this and mounted the knobs flush with the surface, and now they function perfectly. There was no problem with the pot stems. The set up was high and the bridge hardware slightly out of adjustment. But all this was easily set right. And I could find no problems with a dead spot at the 12th fret or anywhere else on the neck. The pickups are powerful and offer a great range of sounds. I don't see myself ever needing to upgrade them. The body and finish are perfect. It's a fantastic guitar, and I got a super discount on it since it was one that had been returned. Bottom line, if you have some basic tech skills and can make adjustments and minor repairs to your ax, you need not fear buying a used guitar. The discounted guitar I purchased is just like new, flawless and still had the plastic on the pick guard. I got this guitar for just a bit more than a PAC 012. But it has the alder body and the Alnico V pickups and the fancy finish. I like it better than my Mexican Strat. A fantastic deal. Thanks MF.

          Comments about Yamaha PAC212V Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar:

          This guitar seems to get good reviews all over the internet so I thought I'd give a try even though I was skeptical of the low price. Perhaps I got a dud but this guitar came to me with multiple issues. The biggest problem is a really dead note 12 fret, G string and it's a neck resonance problem, not a fret height or action problem. Adding weight to the headstock actually moves the dead spot down the fretboard. This issue can't really be fixed without spending a great deal of money or buying a whole new neck.

          Other issues were more minor but still added up to a bad rating. The open E string doesn't ring out like it should which is probably a problem with the nut. The volume and tone knobs are loose and have a coder pin to hold them on but tightening the coder pin makes the knob crooked (standard strat knobs fit though so that's a cheap fix). The tuners aren't great and have some slop in the them when turning, also the pin holes were drilled too large so the tuners can rotate up to 1/8".

          The sound from the single coils is okay, positions 1 and 2 sound pretty good for bluesy stuff. I don't care for the humbucker, it's too bright for this guitar and makes it sound thin.

          Anyways, this thing is going back. The guitar gets 2 stars but MF gets 5 stars for being so easy to work with and being good about returns and exchanges; and they have almost zero hold times.

          Comments about Yamaha PAC212V Quilted Maple Top Electric Guitar:

          First of all, I am by no means even close to a professional guitarist. I just love to play. I don't play in a band. So this is written as a non-professional point of view but from one who has some very high quality guitars.

          I purchased my pac212 as a restock here. Someone returned it. I figured I'd buy it thinking there may just be a ding or scratch. Got it and it is pristine, beautiful, drop dead gorgeous axe. But it had a discinct grounding problem. So I took off the back plate to the volume/tone pot area and sure enough there was a ground wire never soldered. So I called Yamaha, they told me to solder it to the body of the volume pot and whallah, problem solved. So I got a fantactic deal from my fave Musiciansfriend. If all I did was hang it on the wall in my living room it would be a work of art, a babe magnet :-)

          I had to really lower the action, set the intonation which was very easy. The whammy seems a little tighter than my other guitars.

          If you are used to an American Fender Strat you will notice the frets a little higher on the 212.

          My friend who I jam with has an old Yamaha 112 he's had long before Al Gore invented the internet. I consider him a very professional player and can make his sound like a million dollars. He was blown away with mine.

          This guitar proves you don't have to spend $1,500 to $3,000 dollars on a guitar. If you want to spend more, get this guitar and upgrade the tuners to some locking tuners, replace the frets to the smaller ones like that on the Strat if you are not used to the larger frets. Not sure you need to change out the pickups. To me they sound great.
