Magnificent budget electric guitar for beginners
Please select instrument options
The Pacifica PAC012 is an entry level 6-string electric guitar that represents extraordinary value for money. By using cheap materials, Yamaha have managed to keep the instrument firmly in the beginners’ budget range while high quality craftsmanship elevates the guitar to meet their high standards of playability and tone production.
Its surprisingly powerful and versatile tone is captured by a classic HSS pickup configuration – a humbucker near the bridge for raw drive and two single coils in the middle and neck positions for clean tones – and their mix can be adjusted using the 5-way slider and tone/volume knobs. The variety of sounds available makes the guitar suitable for playing any type of music from heavy metal shredding to cool jazz.
Like many starter guitars its Stratocaster-style double cutaway body is constructed from agathis, a plenteous hardwood with exceptional strength-to-weight ratio. The contoured shape combined with a fast neck make the PAC012 an extremely comfortable instrument to play. Smooth maple is used for the bolt on neck and the fingerboard is made from sonokeling, a slightly softer and lighter material than traditional rosewood. Its 22 frets are easily navigated thanks to white dot inlays.
The rest of the guitar’s hardware including the Vintage Tremolo floating bridge, 6 individually adjustable string saddles, detachable whammy bar, and long-lasting machineheads are made of chrome. As the PAC102 has such a simple design, it’s very easy to fine tune and maintain. Like all Yamaha products, it is carefully set up before leaving the factory and is strung and ready to play straight out of the box. It is available in a choice of three colours: Black, Metallic Dark Blue, and Metallic Red. Please note that the guitar does not include a case or any accessories.
