MGR/Cedric Lee's review"Yamaha 112J"

Yamaha Pacifica PAC112J
I just started playing and I listen to blues, rock and everything in between.

I've been reading a lot of reviews and I found this guitar to be great for the price. I purchased this at Pro-Music in Markham, Ontario for a discounted price however the price on the tag is $259.00 CDN.

I personally like almost everything about this guitar - Alder body, HSS stock Seymour Duncan pickups, stays in tune exceptionally well. Playability is really great. The single coils produce a clean tone and the humbucker produces a beefy sound.

The vintage styled tremolo bar - The bar on this guitar feels really weak compared to higher end guitars. I have not compared this guitar's tremolo bar to other tremolo bars in its price range though. However, it isn't much of a problem.

Alder body which is great. I did find a bump (excess laquer) on the guitar a couple days after I brought it home - Remember to inspect the guitar very carefully before purchasing.

Probably the best budget guitar imho - Well constructed body with decent stock pickups (if you do decide to change pickups it is rather easy). This is a great purchase for players just learning to intermediate players who need a backup guitar.

MGR/bladerunner's review"Yamaha Pacifica 112J"

Yamaha Pacifica PAC112J
I've been in and out of music for 20 years plus...currently a hobbyist. Play guitar and bass. Wide range of music taste from playing country to rock, jazz, metal

Purchased this guitar for 259.00 canadian dollars at Steve's music shop in Ottawa, Canada.

EVERYTHING. The guitar is a beuatiful instrument. This thing is all about quality and crastmanship.. I compared this guitar and was debating of either purchasing this one or the Fender Satin Trans Fat Stratocaster® HSS. I played both for an hour each. the Pacific has many tones to it..from country, jazz, blues, hard rock...and light metal.. I played it thru a fender amp at the store and at home on a line6 spider II 75 watt amp.. Here are the key features that made me decide: Quality, craftmanship, built like a tank, alder wood, neck bolted on tight and close to rest of guitar body, nice range in tones, fast neck, not neck heavy while wearing strap..Overall is just felt right for an inexpensive music piece.
I found the fender satin trans, too light, kinda toy like, and felt if it tip over something would of crack.or break off. As well the walnut / satin finish of the strat look prone to dents and marks, pick-up were nice though for stock pick-ups and nice overall nice tone with duncan style pickups..although they felt like they could come loose and fall-out...As well where the neck was bolted to the stock, it did not look too tight..it looked like you could insert a peice of paper in-between..not good for intonation, sustain..
If's funny many people say the pacifica out classes some fender mexican and lower to mid fender end strats... They are right about that. It screams nothing but quality craftmanship.. the most bang for the buck...It's a work-horse and will last for years to come

With today's technology one doesn't need to spend an arm and an leg on a good instrument.. I have not been brainswashed into the marketing machines of owning a Fender or Gibson mentality.. If you have a good qualtiy base to work with, you can simply change out the tuner and pick-ups (trix-out your guitar) and it easily can compare to those $1,500 + Fenders and Gibsons out there on the market. Funny how changing your pick-ups will radically alter the sound of your guitar

For the price, it's what i have expected... Nothing but quality, craftmanship, tight, easy neck action (like butter). Stock pick-ups (but you can change them out easily), stays in tune

Fantastic quality, the best, comparable to any guitar on the market. Got the violin sunburst classic look with tremelo - wammy bar. It's suitable for all sorts of music and its perfect (very good at playing nickleback, hendrix, blink 182, ash, clampton, pink floyed etc), although I suspect it's a tad weak for metal. For what i need it for and what anybody wants a guitar for. The construction it fantasic, everythings were it should be. BUY ONE, IF YOU'VE GOT A BUDGET.

Not too many of these guitars i see for resale...simply do an ebay search for them and you will get a handful of pacifica guitars 112J , (even less hits for the upper models such 412J, 612J model)...compared to too many hits for the fender squiers( which you will hit double even triple digits) I never hear enough about these guitars and i find it impossible to over rate. Who cares about the logo on your head stock of your guitar..Yamaha is worth showing off and giging with on stage without a doubt..(sorry fender / gibson)

MGR/Smith's review"Yamaha Pacifica 112J"

Yamaha Pacifica PAC112J
I bought this guitar 6 months ago an i pain for it 280 euro(300$)

Guitar is very easy to play, have a nice sound, body have made from alder wood,

at my oppinion neck can be a bit widher, screws on botom are sharp so when you plat palm muting it can hurt(but eventual you used to it and there gona to be no problem)

alder body is very, very nice,guitar is about 6 kg , neck is OK and you it's stay tuned very very long...

it's quite gutar for that mony, for begginers and semi pro players...

MGR/Sebastian Stan Bach's review"Yamaha PAC112J"

Yamaha Pacifica PAC112J
I bought the guitar at Tom Lee Music in downtown Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada for $399 CDN plus taxes.

The weight and speed of the guitar allows me to play 80% of the Yngwie Malmsteen and Guns N Roses songs that I cannot do on other guitars. I love it to pieces. I bought A Brian May guitar three months ago but I still do not get the same satisfaction as I get our of this little guy!

I wish that they would make the In-Jack port 3 cms lower towards the ground. I have broke 5 cords due to the way my cords exits the guitar. But then again, I use the guitar like a basketball so I can't blame the design too much!

Great guality. Actually perfect quality. It's as great as you can get unless you get a custom made hand assembled guitar from Hurracaine stressed trees.

I'd get the guitar is I were a begginner. But I'm a professional here and I'll get another one once this one shows age. I've had it for 1.5 years, use it 18-25 hours a week and it's like new. Just changed the scratch plate once. I broke around 150 strings but that it due to my heavy Malmsteen-like playing.
