I bought this guitar as my first guitar with the help of one of my friends fathers (he was a in a german rock-band, a fairly big one) he got me this guitar and a 65 watt crate amp for under 400, giving it really good value, (guitar was about 150$) I play every-day generally for about an hour and a half and it hasn't broken on me once, the tone and sound are good, all the songs I play are recognizable, now this has great sound and quality for a guitar of its price, it can't match up to the tone of a les paul, but it is still very good, I would reccomend this guitar to all beginners and intermediates (though maybe as a back-up if your almost a really-good guitarist) the only two bad points I can give to this guitar are that it un-tunes fairly easily, and the low E-string hits the fret-board a lot if you try to play to loudly (but you can just turn the volume up)

I tried this guitar at the store and noticed that everything was good compared to other guitars in this price range. But the sound was not as good as guitars like the Squier Affinity Strat which has a much brighter and cleaner sound. If you are not looking for a really bright and clean sound, then stick to this guitar because it is the next best thing in this price range.

Great Buy

By Yamham

from Pensacola, Fl

Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

This is a fantastic guitar. Now, being a beginner, I think a lot of things are great. However, as soon as I pulled this bad boy down, I knew it was the one. There is no other option. My favorite feature is most certainly the WHAMMY BAR. This guitar can do anything you want. I play everything from Avenged Sevenfold and AC/DC to Jimmy Buffet and Pink Floyd. I use a Line6 15-watt Spider, so that surely helps me get most sounds. Another feature that I prefer is the Maple neck. With a neck that has been polished or lackered, your hands may get sweaty or something, slowing down hand motion. However, with the featured maple neck, this won't happen. I would reccomend this without a doubt, and would buy it again if it was lost or something. This is an overall great buy.

I love this guitar

By Babbalou

from Lewisville, Texas

Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

I like the option of playing crunchy stuff on the humbucker, then switching to the single coils & playing lead on the same guitar. Nice, fast neck. I can get the action pretty low & only get a little buzzing playing the open A & low E strings because the 9-42 strings are just a tad floppy. 10-46 strings are probably perfect for this guitar & that's what's going on next. It looks nice & sounds good. Nothing broke so far & it looks like it should give me years of fun. I put GHS Graphital lube in the nut grooves & it stays in tune even using the tremelo. If you use the tremelo at all, lube those grooves. The tremelo's a gas, I play oldie/"Pulp Fiction" stuff sometimes w/reverb. The tuners are ok, they stay in tune well, considering the price but a little twist is a lot of change so turn slowly. Overall, this is a lot of bang for the buck. Of my 3 electrics, this one gets played the most.

Superb Quality Beginner Guitar!!!!!

By Rick Narcisso

from Belmont, CA

Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

I purchased the this Yamaha Pacifica from Guitar Center about three weeks ago. At the age of 49, I'm just starting out trying to learn the guitar. In less than two months, I went through two cheap-o acoustics (REAL CHEAP-OS) and a borrowed electric & thought I wasn't capable of learning this at such an advanced age...! Wrong!!! This guitar feels good, easy neck, nice tone and most importantly, STAYS IN TUNE -- A big problem I was having with my other starter guitars. For those of you who INCORRECTLY think there are issues with the Pacifica staying in tune: Leave the whammy bar alone until you know what you are doing! This is a beautiful guitar at a super price. If you're not a beginner, buy the American-made Fender for $3,000 Grand. Otherwise, start here - You will not be disappointed, you can't go wrong!!!!!

Not a good guitar at all

By thewho52193

from In the US

Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

my friend owns this guitar and has had it for several months. It is not good quality at all. The tuning never stays right, the tone is very choppy and doesnt sound nice at all. If you are a beginner looking to buy a guitar, definately go with the Squier Strat. It's a much better instrument than one thats comming from a company who makes motorcycles and TV's.

Good Start

By AaronBowley

from Seattle, WA

Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

I love the Yamaha Pacifica. Nothing in it's price range can compare. It sounds very good (not $1000+ good, but come on...) and plays like a dream. However, it's important to be aware of some issues. I'm currently on my third pacifica and the first two shared the same issues. A buggy switch that would have to be cleaned and that eventually let out no sound, the input jacks had problems, and on one of them the volume knob had issues. Make sure you get the extended warranty so that in case you get on with these issues you can get another. Still, it's a fantastic guitar and there's a reason I'm willing to put up with these issues.

good starter

By FenderFreak350

from Tucson, Az

Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

i'm a young musician who has been playing all kinds of instruments sinse i was like 5...and my first guitar was an older model of a pacifica. It was completely different than this guitar quality wise, when i stumbled across this guitar at guitarcenter i thought it was amazing. Than my friend bought it and after a while it wasn't to good. The pickups die really fast, the tuning sucks, and it's not really put together well. But, if you are looking for a good starter that isn't a squire, go for this one! But, when it wears out, run for the FENDER STRAT! Best guitar EVER! but every guitar player knows that!

Good Beginner

By YPacDeluxe

from Evergreen Park, IL

Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

This is my first electric guitar. It is well made for the most part, however the switch does not always work well on mine. It sometimes does not allow sound to come out of the amp. If you move it a little bit it works fine. Not a big problem at all. Everything else has worked fine. I still have the same strings after a year. So, overall it is a good guitar for a lower price than the Fender strats.

Great guitar

By Brian O'Dell

from Aurora, CO

Comments about Yamaha PAC012DLX Pacifica Series HSS Deluxe Electric Guitar:

The guitar is exactly what I was looking for. Note, I was judging the different guitars based on look and price. Everything I read about it was posetive. As far as performance, I'm happy with it but I'm a beginner and don't know much. My new instructor is going to look it over on Wednesday. I bought online and chose to have the guitar shipped to the store. The guys at the local Guitar Center store are not what I excepted. They treated me like a bother even thou I was buying stuff. I won't go back.
