    Killer beginner guitar

    Yamaha Pacifica PAC112Published on 12/31/11 at 10:31
    The Yamaha Pacifica 112 is one of the best beginner level guitars that can be bought in my opinion. Yamaha has a longstanding tradition of quality and their guitars are consistently quite easy to play, feel great and have tones that put them well ahead of their price range. This particular model has an alder body, a maple neck with rosewood fretboard and 22 frets, sealed chrome tuners, a standard tremolo bridge (non locking) and three Yamaha pickups (a humbucker and two single coils). This model also has a very groovy natural finish, though it's available in many other colours too. These guitars are typically built in Taiwan, as are many other Yamaha guitars.

    The Yamaha Pacifica 112 is one of the best beginner level guitars that can be bought in my opinion.

This particular model has an alder body, a maple neck with rosewood fretboard and 22 frets, sealed chrome tuners, a standard tremolo bridge (non locking) and three Yamaha pickups (a humbucker and two single coils). This model also has a very groovy natural finish, though it's available in many other colours too. These guitars are typically built in Taiwan, as are many other Yamaha guitars.

    UTILIZATION

    The design of this guitar is fairly nice. It's a bit different from a Strat, but I do find it easier to get around and play on. The guitar is reasonably light and sits well on the body. The contouring is good and the upper fret access is definitely superior to a traditional Strat (though not as a good as say, an Ibanez or Jackson). Getting a good sound out of this guitar is pretty easy. Though the stock pickups aren't exactly the quality of higher end models, they do have a decent enough tone to play on, especially if you're just starting and you can go from clean to mean fairly easily.

    SOUNDS

    This guitar is nice in that it sounds great both clean and distorted. Having the humbucker at the bridge is great for being able to go from brighter and more trebly single coil tones to a heavier and thicker tone for rock music, and also cut down on the noise. It sounds great both clean and distorted and works well for a variety of musical styles to my ears. I've tried everything from jazz to blues to classic rock to shred on this guitar and it responds quite well to each of them. Even through cheaper practice amps the guitar has a nice sound that is free of being buzzy or muddy, definitely a good sign in a cheaper instrument. With a pickup upgrade I'm sure it would sound even better, but as is it's not bad at all.

    OVERALL OPINION

    All in all I think the Yamaha PAC112 is a great buy for anyone looking for a quality instrument for not a lot of money. To me these guitars blow away any Squiers or Jay Tursers, etc, in the price range and they're just a better buy all around. You can find this guitar for as low as $100 used if you're smart at shopping. Unfortunately Yamaha products don't have a great resale, but that just makes it easier to pick up one of these from someone who doesn't know how good a guitar they've got.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I have the pacifica for 6 years or more, I adore her serious contact with the handle and its general aesthetical but the big catch lies in the electronics, the sound skips (and volume changes alone tonnalité)
    in price / quality ratio I think that it is difficult to do much better
    to conclude I would say that the Yamaha Pacifica 112 is a good guitar for beginners and even for further research but if you own one it will realize a faloir transplant vital organs (selector potentiometer and wiring and microphones as well)
    I personally do not have the fact but I have serious hesitate ...

    UTILIZATION

    A very pleasant run, allows a good grip. Since it is a strat-type guitar acute access is very simple. For sound, it is currently the best guitar issue price / quality !!!!!! The sound is clear, she Disagree very little and it sounds right! Compared to such squier custom p90 (for a price almost similar) has the yamaha sound clearer and just bcp!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 1 month and am delighted jen. While the pickups are not a simple height was limpression down the volume when switching from two to one. Before cowardice jai try two squier custom p90 and lautre I know, a lag, an ibanez and yamaha another. But for the same price yamaha 112 is definitely the best! at least for the sound ...

    I bought 3 years ago, my electric Premire, I wanted above all a super skyscraper Polyval.
    I'll have another in a week for a more guitar oriented saturations.
    But it's a great guitar for starters, I recommend to all, put 50 euros more instead of buying jim harley and you will really not.

    I use it for a year and wheelbarrows, its strength is its mpanche microphones and cables are weak (I'm not talking about the vibrato is out of the race
    I tried several models this guitar I was immediately more
    value for money is unbeatable, I would not wage workers who have contributed to making t (a big thank you to all)
    I think at this price you can not make other choices without the wrong choice
    réçament I replaced the guitar with a ibanez RG370DX gives me satisfaction entieren for now (if your budget allows you to add more than 200 € instead take this if you are fan of metal or distortion and floyd

    + Simple double difference in volume

    I used it from 1997 to 2001 (I always but it is no longer used), it was my first scratch, purchased from OCCAZ 1500 balls with amp, I would do the same choice without any problems, the sound is good better than the Squiers and low-end Epiphone.

This is where we see that this is a beginners guitar because with experience, we will find ourselves a bit limited. I actually decided to sell this one to take me an LTD but I do not regret in any way the purchase of the Pacifica as the first skyscraper.
    - Access to treble is fairly easy, there are only 22 frets and it easily goes up to the 19th. A good beginner guitar solo!
    - Type Stratocaster, the Pacifica has a form could not be more classic, various colors (black I), it is simple but very pretty, she is light and pleasant again, just buy a good strap! ^ ^

    SOUNDS

    - It's a versatile guitar ("key-on" because it does not control any style to perfection), so perfectly made for beginners, you can play the good old Rock and Blues as the Metal and Punk or good even Reggae ... it is focused on any particular style. We can both play solos that good rhythm, this guitar, but not exceptional on specific issues, agrees to ALL (or almost)!
    - The pickups are far from exceptional. Like all the guitars entry level. You can feel the difference with the humbucker that fits more with distorted sounds while simple are rather intended to sound clearer. A wind that keeps growing. I repeat myself but it is a "first" guitar. So, after all, the microphones are sufficient if there are changes in (microphone or guitar). And for that price should not ask for the moon!
    - I was initially a Roland Cube 15W, amp classic limited. I later invested in a greenhouse at Zoom (606) and then you start to enjoy double the sounds of this guitar! Boss, Zoom or Digitech, choose your side in any case we strongly advise to buy one!

    OVERALL OPINION

    - I use this guitar for a year and a half soon, I love the handle anyway, I plan to change but so far for a first guitar, the Pacifica has seduced me like no other!
    - It suited perfectly to the style I wanted as a first guitar (= flexible), I hesitated a bit with the Squier but I finally chose Yamaha.
    - If I go back with experience, I would do this choice. It is important to have a versatile guitar, nice and easy for the first time.
    - One of the best quality / price of entry-level (with the Squier no doubt), it is clear. For a little cheaper guitars you frankly pathetic.
    - A skyscraper that is perfect for beginners to anyone as a first guitar.
    - It's hard to part with them finally! ^ ^

    SOUNDS

    This guitar should (almost) all types of music.
    Indeed, with both single and double pickups (duncan design please) there's no better.
    Apart from the microphone of the environment that got my lack of personality (I've replaced by a dual rail GFS lil killer ... excellent!), The sound is more than adequate.
    Neck pickup: bright blues and Hendrix, SRV, RHCP, ... Vraimment well as with a good crunch with a clean sound. Less well in heavy distortion (normal for a single).
    Micro middle: I do not use it. Too transparent, no personality!
    Micro Bridge: Long live the big rock (Nirvana, ACDC, Metallica, Led Zep etc. ...). Trs good mic, pretty hot!

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for 8 years and it vraimment trs a good instrument. I will also probably buy another because I did paint the Premire and I want to make the same thing with another ... (The forums on this topic on AudioFanzine bcp me inspired!)

    What I like the +: the neck and bridge pickups (all rock in a skyscraper) and spices plastic (white) that turn yellow over time (long live the vintage ...)
    What I like least: The low E string that locks the bridge when I get loose and sometimes drop in D (but only occasionally and for 2 months ?!!?)

    Frankly, the guitar for a idalie dbuttant!
    Qq each essay I had the time and this one the most versatile silent.
    The ratio quality price is excellent.
    This choice I would do 1000 times if necessary!

    - The handle is it fun?

    There is a nice touch, only flat, lemanche is slightly domed, but unless you look like a gun, this is invisible and is not at all disturbing

    Nothing to report.

    very good in general.

    - Gets it easy to sound good? ...

    Yes a condition to play properly.
