I own this guitar, and I'm a beginner, but I really love playing it everyday. The guitar has ok pickups, and it's not too heavy or too light. I'm pretty sure this guitar will last you a long time, garenteed! The whammy bar is cool too. Good guitar to start with. Great price! I suggest you should buy it if you a beginner!

Its a pretty good guitar for a beginner. This was my first guitar and I've been playing with it for about a year and I still do instead of my Epiphone Les Paul. It only has two knobs, one for volume and one for tone but despite that fact, it still plays well. It has a nice sound when I play metal or rock but sometimes it's a little scratchy. It's really light which is one of the things I like most about it. Overall, it's a nice guitar. It doesn't look all great but its really sweet. I'd recommend it to anyone even if you're a beginner or an expert at guitars.

    Comments about Yamaha PAC112J Electric Guitar:

    Yamaha makes excellent guitars, not because they use better parts, but because their attention to detail and quality control is far superior to most other guitars in its class. They use good quality materials (alder, rosewood, decent electronics), and they pay attention to their manufacturing. Have you picked up a Squier lately? How about and Epiphone. Most of their guitars in this price class have poorly finished necks, uneven fretboards, and fret ends that are so rough and sharp we call them "cheese graters." Even the finish on the Pacifica line is a notch above. The neck is a joy to play, and the slightly smaller body size makes playing a joy.

    The guitar is awesome. Just starting to play again and this is just what was needed. Good tone and set up out of box was perfect.

    Not Just For Beginners

    By ramon godines

    from Laredo Texas

    Comments about Yamaha PAC112J Electric Guitar:

    I had two of these when I was a kid. I moved on to several other guitars for gigging and recording. (Fender, Gibson, Carvin, Ibanez to name a few) I picked up one of these used at Guitar Center recently for $85 and bought it for outdoor gigs and jam sessions. (to give my fancy guitars a rest) I was shocked at how well the neck played and the overall tuning stability. Once the strings are stretched properly, this guitar is a champ. I put some stainless steel bridge saddles and pickups from a parts company, and it is now my main guitar. In fact, I bought three more and sold most of my other guitars. I am a firm believer in the 112j. It is the most consistent well made guitar in this price range, and several hundred dollars above this price range.

    all right

    Comments about Yamaha PAC112J Electric Guitar:

    I've had this guitar for about 2 months, i'm pretty good at guitar and i feel this would be better for more startting on. the stock pick ups are pretty good for what they are and the neck is all right, i get a little buzzing but i have the strings lowered so if they were higher that mite fix that. all in all a good guitar for the price, or for starters.

    Good For Beginners

    By JC

    from Franklin, NY

    Comments about Yamaha PAC112J Electric Guitar:

    I bought a yamaha pacifica 112J in Sunburst and it sounds great and this is my second guitar. I am a beginner and the music i play like metallica, quiet riot, alice in chains, and ac/dc it all sounds like the songs that they have recorded. I would Highly recommend this to a beginner.

    Best guitar under $200. Period.

    By Joe

    from Vienna, VA

    Comments about Yamaha PAC112J Electric Guitar:

    It really doesn't get much better than this. Alder wood, good quality control, fast and playable neck, and decent (passable) stock pickups. If you're into modding, you might want to look into a more solid/weighty tremolo block and better pickups, but even if you leave it alone, this guitar will do pretty much anything you want. Other guitars in this range sound very muddy or fuzzy when you want some strong distortion, but the Pacifica keeps it pretty rich without sounding like you're going through a hairy clog in a drain. Not to mention I've seen tons of guitars with necks that didn't sit right in the pocket and fretboards that were a mess. The Yamaha folks make it right almost every time. There's less cherry picking needed to grab a worthwhile instrument that can serve you well for a long time.

    Ok guitar

    By anonymous

    from California

    Comments about Yamaha PAC112J Electric Guitar:

    I've had this guitar for about 3 years before I upgraded it was my regular guitar. The quality is ok, but not the best you could get for $200. Depending on your amp the pickups may sound muddy with distortion on. However the guitar is really good clean. The action is a little too high but that can probably be adjusted. Those are about the only problems I've had. Its been a good guitar for me, but there are better values out there. I would have to recommend Ibanez or Jackson out of the ones I've played. In the end it all comes down to what you like, don't go by reviews play it for yourself.

    12 Years, 3 Albums Later

    By JD Morris

    from San Francisco

    Comments about Yamaha PAC112J Electric Guitar:

    I've been playing Pacifica's for over 12 years and have to say I still love this model. It's just so easy to play and I continue to be amazed by the variance possible in it's tone, especially for recording.
