I would firstly like to say that I did not buy this guitar, but instead my school gave it me as we recieve free music lessons. I have however had it for two years and I think it's great. I have this guitar in black and as far as I know you can also get it in metallic red and electric blue (which is my personal favourite). I love the fact that it has two single bridge pickups and one double set, I find it much better looking than the 3 single ones on most guitars that look similar to this. If you don't get the miniture Yamaha amplifier with this guitar, I highly recommend that you go out and buy it. Although it is very, very small it still ... Read the complete review

The Yamaha Pacifica was my first guitar and is an absolutely fantastic guitar for a beginner. 12 Years (and quite a few guitars) later, i still find myself reaching for this guitar as it plays so nicely. With a nicely balanced action and 22 fret rosewood finger board it is very easy on the fingers! I listen to quite a diverse range of music and the Yamaha Pacifica can cope easily with most styles thanks to its clear, strong sound. So, whether your jamming along with Pink Flloyd, Jimmy Hendrix, Nirvana, Metallica, The Eagles or Avril Lavigne (my own secret shame), then this guitar will be able to keep up. The humbucker pickup at the bridge position gives ... Read the complete review

The Yamaha Pacifica is, and also has a longstanding reputation of being, an excellent guitar for the money. I've had mine since I started playing electric about 7 years ago and until this year when one of the pickups went it has worked all that time without fault. Sound wise its fairly standard Fender stratish tones and has worked for anything I've played; blues, rock even a cheeky bit of metal now and again. An added bonus of the new models (I believe) is the inclusion of a coil tap for the bridge humbucker pickup. This gives you the switchable option of a single coil or the full more meat tones of the humbucker to play with. Other features wise its fairly ... Read the complete review

I think this may have been my first non-budget guitar. Bought over 8 years ago I still have mine today and it still plays as well as it ever did. Out of the box the action is nice and the mixture of two single coil pickups and one humbucker gives good variance on the tonal front to make this guitar quite versitile. Recently I have changed the pickups as the humbucker has died but given the initial cost and age of the guitar this isnt too big a deal for me. Body is well balanced although the tuners could do with replacing as they arent the most reliable things in the world! Guitar has a good sound for the price with reasonable clean sounds and using the stock humbucker a . Read the complete review

Great for high-gain metal. Does many other genres acceptably.
Sometimes needs a bit of tweaking for clean sounds.
