Introducing the Yamaha Pacifica 012 MKII 4/4 electric guitar

Modelled on the best-selling Pacifica 112, this new entry-level model offers a comprehensive specification, with quality craftsmanship and a brilliant tone all for an affordable price.

Powerful sound

The Pacifica 012 has a 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 enables a selection of those classic 'in-between' sounds with fantastic tone control, while the vibrato bridge has a well-proven vintage design, with six individually adjustable saddles for accurate intonation and a slinky set-up.

Expertly crafted

Crafted with a maple neck, this instrument delivers a vibrant and crisp tone. The choice of a rosewood or walnut fingerboard not only enhances the warmth and richness of the sound but also ensures a consistently warm and inviting feel. The body, constructed from agathis wood, may not provide the same kind of tonal characteristics of more expensive woods, but it does offer a cost-effective, reliable and durable option - perfect for the beginner.

Ideal for beginners

Have you ever dreamt of playing the guitar or even forming a band? Now you can make that happen!

This a full-sized electric guitar that features a renowned quality construction and finish, making it the ideal introduction to the world of rock guitars. The Agathis body helps players get a clear and warm sound that matches that of much higher-priced models, and the double-cutaway shape ensures a very comfortable playing experience, ideal for learners and those who play regularly in rehearsals and gigs.

The Yamaha Pacifica range

Inspired by the instantly recognisable and highly playable strat shape, the award-winning Yamaha Pacifica electric guitars range is known for its excellent build quality, sound quality and playability.

  • Yamaha Pacifica 012 – the base model, great for beginners and made with a cost-effective agathis body, making it the most affordable in the range.
  • Yamaha Pacifica 112J - A level up from the 012, the 112J features a solid alder body and maple neck, providing excellent tonal qualities.
  • Yamaha Pacifica 112JL - The left handed version of the 112J.
  • Yamaha Pacifica 112V – Similar to the 112J but a level up, this model has higher quality pickups, ensuring fantastic sound production.
  • Yamaha Pacifica 112VM – Identical to the 112V with the same great features, but with a maple fingerboard, giving it a stronger attack.
  • Yamaha Pacifica 212VQM – Identical to the 112V in terms of features and performance, but with a distinct, quilted maple body.
