Not a bad decision

By Richie

from Crystal, MN

Comments about Yamaha PAC112V Electric Guitar:

I've owned other guitars prier to owning this one, and it's not a bad guitar really! The neck feels slightly wider than the one on my Epiphone Les Paul, and the sound isn't quite bad either. I bought it being drawn in by the Sonic Blue color, smooth neck and cool looks, and I don't regret it at all. I keep it as a backup and for the sake of buying a guitar with some single coils and a wammy bar. The only complaints i have is the ringing of the tremolo springs, but that could happen on any guitar. The only think I'd change would be beefier pickups, but i plan to swap those out someday anyway.

A whole lot of guitar for the price

By Brian

Comments about Yamaha PAC112V Electric Guitar:

20 years ago my first electric was a $300 strat squire bullet. It in no way compares to the pacifica. The Pacifica really has it where it counts. The sound is fantastic, but what gets me is it's versatility. In the past year I've purchased this Pacifica and an American made Gibson LP Melody Maker. Overall the LP MM is of course the better guitar, but I find myself playing the Pacifica more because of the aforementioned versatility. This guitar is unreal for the price. In my opinion this should be a $600 guitar. If you need to add a strat-a-like to your collection, this is your guitar. I can't put it down.

Yamaha Owner for three years

By Chris Herrera

from Salt Lake City, Utah

Comments about Yamaha PAC112V Electric Guitar:

I had this brand of guitar for three years. I don't prefer yamaha guitars. I do not trust these guitars at all for playing on stage. Sure, I might be "hating on" Yamaha guitars, but I have played other guitars about the same price as the one I have (which looks similar to this one) and it sounds much sleeker. I do have to say though, the looks of this guitar is good. Also, the guitar is very lightweight. It has retained the same look, but scratch and wear is shown if you look fairly close enough. I don't think the guitar is capable of fingertapping, I have tried, and it sounds mediocre at best. Overall, the guitar is a good starting brand, but to soar in your musical goals, I prefer something better.

Comments about Yamaha PAC112V Electric Guitar:

This is my 2nd guitar and an upgrade from my first very low quality instrument, the "Gibson" Maestro (purchased as a package from another retailer for $60).

The PAC112V is very comfortable to play. It came setup well, right out of the box, and it keeps in tune well. The vibrato bridge is set for beginners (against the body and pushes's not quite a "floating" bridge. However, it can be manually adjusted to float freely).

I absolutely love the sound of the neck pickup. It's is full and round. I find the sound thins out and becomes harsher as I move toward the bridge. Being that the pickups are naturally bright, I play with the tone knob turned down halfway. The tone knob is also very...loose, and doesn't offer much in the way of tonal diversity. It's either very bright, not quite as bright, or dull. With a decent amp however, this guitar can sound like anything.

I was going to upgrade the pickups and tone pot this year, but instead purchased a new Epiphone Les Paul, which came with the particular pickups I wanted pre-installed (for about the price it would have cost to upgrade my PAC..I got a deal!), so I'm no longer going upgrade my PAC. However, I'm also not selling it. I'm definitely keeping it. I do love this guitar (despite my criticisms).

I love the split coil humbucker, though I almost play exclusively on the neck, and am comfortable playing this guitar standing as well as sitting down. It works wonderfully with Rocksmith, and while I'd consider a Fender Squire Strat (not an Affinity nor Bullet) a step up in terms of tone, I'd easily choose the Pacifica over the cheaper Squier models. The Alnico V pickups on the 112V are clear and act as a wonderful blank canvas to throw effects over. The humbucker is gritty, though not menacing. The neck pickup is warm (when the tone is brought down), and the fretboard is very comfortable (never gets sticky). The frets are even and don't hang off the neck. Overall, an amazing guitar for the price.

Good Guitar with custom Pick Ups


from San Bernardino

Comments about Yamaha PAC112V Electric Guitar:

I had one of these Guitars for a short while but returned it and got the Silver Metallic one. The guitar was built well and was very light. There was little to no fret buzz compared to the lower-end models. The finish was ok and so was the hardware. I returned it because it I did not like the sound of the Alnico Pick-ups and the coil tap was a bit noisy with the knob feeling loose; which lead to some light static. It sounded very high pitch with poor mid-sounds in my opinion. I now know that I like the sound of the Ceramic Pick-ups vs Alnico. Also, the Silver was more of a flat Silver with little to no metallic in it from what I could see. The neck felt great and the tuners were good, but the only bad thing about them was that the strings were cut too long at the factory. This lead to some snags in my gig bag. This guitar has a sound of it's own, which might suite some players just fine. Overall, the weight, look, construction, and set-up was good out of the box. Very well made guitar. I would not recommend this Guitar to beginners only because the sound is too custom. I would try to get a uitar with a modern sound and feel like the PAC012 or PAC112J.
