Ahead of next month’s virtual NAMM show, Yamaha announces two new electric guitars in its Pacifica family, featuring new colors and premium components.
A Fire Red finish and flamed-maple veneer top adorns the Pacifica 612VIIFMX, while the Pacifica 612VIIX is available in Matte Silk Blue (exclusively at Sweetwater), Teal Green Metallic and Yellow Natural Satin.
Yamaha chose top-level components to round out the guitar. Seymour Duncan TB-14 Custom 5 and SSL-1 single-coil pickups deliver warm and powerful sounds and a five-position pickup selector and push-pull coil-split deliver tonal versatility. Graph Tech TUSQ nuts and strings trees, Grover locking tuners and Wilkinson VS50 bridges ensure optimal performance and exceptional tuning stability. Both the PAC612VIIFMX and PAC612VIIX feature alder bodies with bolt-on maple necks and rosewood fretboards.
Launched in 1990, the Pacifica series were developed in Yamaha’s Los Angeles custom shop, with a focus on consistency in build quality and playability. Gigging guitarists will appreciate the versatility in creating different sounds and exceptional value.
The Yamaha Pacifica 612VIIFMX and 612VIIX electric guitars have an MSRP of $1,050.00 and will be available in January.
