  • It was supposed to be my back up guitar.

    As reviewed by Bob Cronley on 3/21/2011

    I bought the Pacifica 012 as a back up to my MIM Fender Strat, but since then, it has gotten just as much stage and practice time as the Fender. I gave this guitar 4 stars because it has it's faults. If you want to just pick up a guitar and play it, you might give it a lower rating, but I always expect to have to do some modifications to my guitars. Fault number one is that pickup switch, which, when pushed too far one way or the other, will shut off all the pickups. Replace it with a better one as soon as possible. A much milder fault is that the pickups can go micro phonic. I have only noticed this with the distortion all the way up and the strings muffed, I have never noticed it while playing. If you are like me and plan to replace the pickups, anyway, this is not a major fault. Just about everything else about this guitar is as good or better than my MIM Strat, which I paid over twice as much for. The only thing better on the MIM Strat was the pickup selector. The only reason the MIM Strat gets as much playing time as the Pacifica is because I haven't made the modifications to the Pacifica that I have made to my MIM Strat. ( When I get around to making these modifications, the Pacific will probably be my favorite guitar.

  • This guitar rocks!

    As reviewed by thesoulman on 2/26/2007

    I love this guitar! I got it for my birthday a year ago and it's still going strong. I've had nothing wrong with it all, it works perfectly. I like the Humbucker Pickups, really good for disortion. I also like the cable input is in the side and not on the guitar. Also I like how without the 3rd tone knob there is more room to pluck up and down near the High E and B string. Great Guitar for a great price.

  • Great starter

    As reviewed by guitarLover on 1/11/2007

    The Yamaha PAC012 made such a great gift. I purchased it for my sis who just got started playing. She loved it because it's of good quality and sounds fantasic. It is a good buy if you are starting out or just looking for something cheap because it gives you something great for your money. A great buy overall.
