Since I own this guitar for abot 3 years now, I thought it was about time I gave it some kind of review. I purchased this guitar in a local store in Osijek,Croatia and payed about $300. I did not own an electric guitar before that, so a friend of mine who owned the store recomended this guitar.
I wanted an afordable strat style guitar,and that was exactly what I have got. I like almost everything about this axe, specialy the fact that if you drop like I did it doesnt brake up.
Like I sad, I like almost everything.I dont like the buzz of the single coil pickups,but all in all this is a sweet guitar.
Here are the specs:
- Solid Alder Body
- Maple Neck
- Maple Fingerboard, 22 Frets
- 1 Humbucker/2 Single Coil Pickups
- One Volume, One Tone Control, 5 Way Switch
- Diecast Chrome Tuners
- White Pickguard
- Vintage Style Chrome Tremolo
- Black Finish
The quality is realy good. There were no blemishes on the finish, and the guitar came with a wrench for neck adjustement.
I love this guitar because of its good construction, the sound and the features. It stays in tune for a long time and its humbucker pickup has a real thrash metal like sound. This axe is ideal for Iron Maiden type of rifs and solos! If you are a beginer buy it. Later on you can upgrade it. I will probably replace the pickups,but I will still use this guitar in live situations because it feals like a strat and looks like it too!
I bought this guitar at a local guitar shop almost 3 years ago for about $300. I wanted a strat type electric guitar wich had a maple neck, 22 frets and a bit more agresive sound in the bridge position. Since it was my first electric guitar I think I made a good choice to begin with.
What I like about this guitar is the way it lookes and sounds like. It has metalic black finish on solid alder body, bolt on maple neck with 22 medium size frets, 2 single coils in neck and midle and 1 humbucker in the bridge position. I also like the fact that it has 1 volume and 1 tone control,5 postion pickup selector switch and very good tuning keys. By the way I even got two wrenches, one for neck adjustment and one for adjusting the hight of the strings.
There isn't much I don't like about this guitar, in fact I love everithing about it.
The only thing that I dislike is the buzzing sound of the single coils in the overdrive mode, but it's really not that bad.
The finish on the body is flawless, and the neck is really comfortable to play. All the electronics still work great after nearly 3 years now. The sound of the humbucker in the bridge position is prety good for a guitar of this price range and the single coils give a good vintage sound that's great for blues or jazz. The unit stays in tune for a very long time even when I rock prety hard on it.
This is a great guitar to start with and also for semi-pro playing. I'm planing to change the pickups and make it a serious workhorse guitar. In conclusion I highly recomend this guitar to beginners and semi-pro guitarists.
I got this guitar as a Christmas gift, from Steve's Music in Toronto and it cost $300 Canadian
The guitar is great, its my first electric guitar but I did do some research and compared it to Washburn,Ibanez and for the money it was better sounding and most durable. I however like all three companys, I found the Ibanez rg170bulky and lacking tone, the washburn was the most playable but sounded horrible yet, the Pacifica was flawless in playabililty and sound.
I can't complain i've had it for almost a yr and no problems. One word of advise this is more of a bluesy guitar rather then metal but it still does the job with a good amp and pedal.
Very good quality i've spent hours playing metal and it sounds good stays in tune. The neck is well crafted, pickups sound good the humbucker and to single coils are great.
Definiatlly will last a while and take a beating.
I general great electric to start with for all types of music sounds good clean, or bluesy if you want it too or heavy with the right distortion. I know a guy who bought an rg170 and its falling apart on him. Yamaha might not seem that attractive to new players but its good value for the buck.
Owning an acoustic and classical getting this axe was kickass!
i bought my pacifica from bandland in stockton as my second guitar i also have a les paul and i paid £180!!
i really like this guitar because one it looks really nice with its plain wooden double cut design two because it has two single coil and a humber for pickups and three it is fairly easy to play and not so bad on your fingers!!!
there is not alot i dont like about my guitar apart from the fact it marks and scratchs easily and shows up well!!
i think my guitar is very strong and well made by talented crafts people who took time to design and make this range of guitars!!!
all else i have to say is im reallly happy i bought this product!!!!
