Yamaha unveils two new Pacifica 612 guitars with impressive specs

The Yamaha Pacifica is an iconic design – but it's more than just a great beginner guitar option because the series offers options for a range of budgets. And now it's got two new high roller models joining the family.

The 612VIIFMX and 612VIIX retail for $1,050 but offer serious spec in return. Pickups are a Seymour Duncan TB-14 Custom 5 humbucker with a push-pull coils split and SSL-1 single-coils with a five-position switch for a wealth of tones.

Other premium third party appointments include Graph Tech TUSQ nuts and strings trees, Grover locking tuners and Wilkinson VS50 bridges to make intonation and tuning stability a breeze. 

Both the PAC612VIIFMX and PAC612VIIX models feature alder bodies with bolt-on maple necks and rosewood fretboards.
