Pacifica 012 represents the entry level option from the legendary and multi-award winning Yamaha Pacifica series which is regarded as a modern classic in the music industry.
For an inexpensive yet high-quality introduction to the world of rock guitar, you’ll not find better value than the Pacifica 012.
Modelled on the best-selling Pacifica 112, the new, even more affordable 012 has a similarly contoured double-cutaway body, and the firepower of a raunchy bridge-position humbucker plus two clear-toned single-coil pickups. The five-position pickup switch allows selection of those classic ‘in-between’ sounds, while the vibrato bridge is a well-proven vintage design with six individually adjustable saddles for accurate intonation and a slinky set-up.
