    Then the word, very comfortable guitar debuter; very thin neck, very pleasant, without access to acute problems, not too heavy, little retuning frquent, ergonomic shape ... nickel.

    SONORITS

    This is where the drip pan is, jvous advises to buy in stores.

    First having purchased the guitar in export in English there are 8 months, when the course of the book was downright sombr (current average price in France: € 250 € 180 against England oooooo) I retrouv myself with a guitar, certe grants, but not rgle AT ALL (I have never seen a handle as straight Oo Fretes touched the strings, the sound was degeu) so I started tweak the truss rod, easel and harmonics, with a few decent results prs, except for the handle ... like the handle of the truss rod is simple action, it was impossible even dessr up to have a concave handle. The original string set as the 9-42, tension n'tait not sufficient to handle bends naturally, I then changed to the 9-46 home ernie ball; its commenait become playable, but his always verged. I now plans to spend on the 10-52 or the 11-56 xD

    The electronics is really bad quality knobs are really very bad notament the volume on mine (jvou not tell parasites), poorly made welds and botched little isols cables, push -Pull to split the humbucker not even functional xD Microphones ts have little prs okay for a low-end without this problem always Introduced pests; The humbucker is downright sloppy and not hotter than the neck pickup, just drinking the Tone max and only on the treble strings, the micro bridge is simple serves quasiement seen anything change the sound it makes no of the position (ah if it reduces some parasites pickup and reduces the interference characteristic simple neck pickup) and finally a few micro prs handle clean drinking but sorely lacking in personality .dropoff window

    So who bought this guitar to dbuter, I bought at the same time excellent Cube 20x, which, say frankly, comes pniblement fill these gaps, but we get a good draw his in clean, overdrive and metal stack.

    Appart sustain its not bad for the maple, even in 4 parts referred, and it sounds pretty good unplugged ^^

    NOTICE GLOBAL

    His six months must break everything I use my faith and it is a good guitar dbuter, thanks to its level of confortabilit and Superior nimporte finish what guitar this range view even above. Unfortunately, after the comments I've read manufacturing quality has DGRAD over the months, and feels especially on the default Recurring electronic ... low-end guitars is well, with and without microphones faibliards personalit but thanks to a good filled the beginner will override. For me the report qualitprix is ​​unbeatable (180 € the guitar: P) but would be more jme tourn to a model dowry expressive pickups and a mahogany body, but that price is the be found xD

    UTILIZATION

    motorway run, pleasant touch
    fairly well polished frets

    that was my first guitar, and she gave me want to continue to nab at least once a day; Q / P ratio is great, much greater than the entry-level Squier and other moldy chinoiserie (lol)

    Very good guitar

    For the features of this guitar is the best selling entry level Yamaha electric guitars, I do not believe it because they are now well known.

    UTILIZATION

    Nice handle, guitar not too heavy and very ergonomic.
    I wanted a guitar with Strat sounds typed and from this point of view no surprises.

    SOUNDS

    This is an extra guitar for me to have cristalins sounds so typical single coil pickups for Strat. I easily found the sound I was looking to play pots and funk rhythms but also solos clear with a slight crunch.

    I play on a Roland Cube last generation and this guitar blends perfectly with him.
    I'm a little less enthusiastic about the spit bridge pickup because I find the sound a bit feeble and twangy but I also think we should dig out the possibilities of the guitar before making a final judgment.

    OVERALL OPINION

    I use it for a week so my opinion may change again.
    Initially, I thought point me to a Squier Classic Vibe and after testing in a store, I preferred the Pacifica.
    When I saw the promo on a well known website I did not hesitate for long especially since I do not care about the color.
    I confess to being amazed to have a guitar of this quality for such a low price, so I do
    not regret my choice.
    I think Yamaha makes guitars and basses in a very good quality and very good value for money.

    Hobbyist. Love blues guitarists like Stevie Ray Vaughan, Buddy Guy, Walter Trout. Also like rock guitarists like Joe Satriani and Yngwie Malmsteen.

    Won it on ebay for $111.00 ($142 with shipping).

    The overall look and feel is excellent. (Mine is the natural color with the solid wood body and rosewood fingerboard). A solid alder body at this price point is unheard of. It sports the look and feel of a natural colored stratocaster at a fraction of the price.

    One minor complaint- I don't like the appearance of the tuning machines. They look a little cheap. However, the guitar stays in tune no matter how hard I hit it, so they do their job. If I ever change them out, it will be for purely cos…

    One minor complaint- I don't like the appearance of the tuning machines. They look a little cheap. However, the guitar stays in tune no matter how hard I hit it, so they do their job. If I ever change them out, it will be for purely cosmetic reasons.

    The construction is solid. The alder body is rock-hard and is tightly bolted to the neck. The pickups show no signs of coming loose. There are no dead frets. The neck is thin and smooth, so easy to play. The guitar is surprisingly loud when you play it unplugged. The pickups, while not incredible, are more than good enough to play AC/DC-like riffs and blues licks, and the clean sounds are excellent. The quality is remarkable for a $200 guitar.

    I have long wanted a Fender Stratocaster with a natural wood body. In order to get one, I would have to pay at least $500 for a Mexican 70s reissue (that's the cheapest version that has the natural finish). Until I can buy one, this Pacifica provides me with the same vibe and look for less than $150! Even after I get my strat, I will hang on to this guitar as my knock-around instrument. In my opinion, it is just as good as any standard Mexican strat for about half the price. I love this guitar.

    I've bought this piece of quality gear in Dowsons in Abingdon. It was brought over from another shop within hours. I paid 169 GBP for it and bought Marshall 30 MG with it :)

    It realy does the trick, the distinctive 5 position switch gives clearly different sounds in all positions, the humbucker is perfect. The neck I believe is black rosewood, really nice, and it is very easy to play. I've always wanted an electric guitar that can be used fo all different styles and friends recommended this one for a start. I reckon this is one item that will stick to me for a long time

    It seems that the high pitch notes and the thin strigs are not loud enough but then I bougth a very light gauge. I plan to change the strings in a few day anyway.

    It's colour called 'translucent dark green' Unfortunately the did not have it in Sunburst. When I first saw it, I could hardly take my eyes of it, the finish is absolutely gorgeous and

    Very good value and quality guitar to start with and to play all styles. Highly recommended.

    I got this guitar for my birthday second hand but would be approx £200 new. when I bought it, it had a few dents and scratches in the wood but otherwise good condition.

    I really like the wooden finish but it shows up scratches a bit. The varnished neck feels nice for slide guitar especially. It also stays in tune very well.

    I had a problem with the jack socket at first but it was just a loose earth wire. t
    The wood dents quite easily but its not very noticeable. The whammy bar does take it out of tune alot but it is easy to tune again. nothing very serious.

    Nothing has ever fallen off or broken on the guitar so I guess its strong. When it comes to taking the back off the electrics are …

    Nothing has ever fallen off or broken on the guitar so I guess its strong. When it comes to taking the back off the electrics are all fine but putting the back, back on the screws can cut new grooves in the wood. you just have to be careful.

    Its a great begginer or intermediate guitar and great value for money. I play it through a Squier 42 watt amp and sounds great for rock, blues and heavy metal. Its great!

    I bought this in Axe music in colchester about 2 years ago for £170.

    I like the feel of the guitar and i also like the look and shape.

    I dont like the scratch plate on it also i would prefere if it came with 2 humbucker pickups instead of one.

    It is well made and its great for a beginner and intermediate guitar players.

    The guitar is a great buy for all those beginner guitarists who want a good first guitar to last them.

    This was my first electric guitar, I got it from Hooters in Watford for £299 including a Marshall MG15DFX amp and all the accessories.

    Everything! It's great having a humbucker as well as two single coils so there is more choice (unlike a Squire or Fender Strat) - the humbucker has a really cool distorted sound. The neck is nice and thin, and I like the look of the headstock - much better than Fenders. Also the body shape is much curvier and nicer than Strats. I don't really know if it would be better to have two tone knobs (as most people say) but one is fine for me. I can play all sorts of music on this from Pantera (full distortion) to Stereophonics (acoustic mucic), but IT IS AS I…

I can play all sorts of music on this from Pantera (full distortion) to Stereophonics (acoustic mucic), but IT IS AS IMPORTANT TO GET A GOOD AMP AS IT IS TO GET THIS GUITAR!

    WEll, there isn't really much to not like. I suppose nothing really.

    Good hard construction I haven't really tested it yet but so far it is fine (of course I take loads of care with it but there is the odd knock). The paint job is really good, the scratch plate is fine, and the neck looks like it will hold up to almost anything.

    A great guitar, you have to get it as long as you get good accessories otherwise you can't make it soud good. If you're looking for a beginner guitar, definitely get this one.

    bought in plymouth, vibes music for £190
    was my first guitar so picked it for the colour

    i like the colour the price and its got a sweet neck. its also easier to play than my gibson les paul standard. its a good back up guitar with little faults and is practicaly indestructable.

    the only thing wrong is its slightly stiff tremolo and has a slightly weak humbucker

    it has an alder body with bolt on neck and a beautifully finished rose wood fingerboard

    fully class for the money that you pay. a perfect beginners guitar and dam good pro guitar especially if you put a seymour duncan hotrail in it like mine

    I brought it from Sound Control in Birmingham and paid £179 for it. Not only did I get a decent guitar but some cracking advice along with it as well.

    I have played Electric guitar before but i had hit a crossroads with the one I had. I was playing through a keyboard amp, the tone was terrible and the whole setup was just not encouraging me to pick it up and play. I went into Sound Control told the man my budget and the pacifica was the first guitar I picked up. It has a great Wood effect finish, and the tone on it was superb.

To get the sound I wanted out of the guitar though I had to buy a decent amp, plugged into a Fender Champion 30 amp, and I couldnt stop playing it. It sounded a brilliant setup and after about 30minutes of playing I decided to buy both the guitar and the amp

    Not found anything yet.

    The one I have has a wood effect finish, which I believe helps shine through the quality of the instrument. It really looks the business. The quality of both the guitar and the amp i brought has really shocked me, i thought I would have to spend a lot more to get this sound but its fantastic.

    The amp is as important as the guitar, advise to test amps before you buy. I brought both together and spend £320 on my setup, with the amp nearly costing as much as the guitar. I know now though that I have a decent setup that will encourage me every day to pick it up and keep learning and improving technique. I really cant recommend this guitar enough.
