A Premium-Take on a Best-Seller

With the Yamaha PACIFICA 212VQM, you get a gorgeous guitar at a fantastic price, which retains the kind of quality you've come to expect from Yamaha.

The Pacifica 212VQM features a Premium North American Alder body, topped with a piece of Quilted Maple, and a maple neck with Rosewood fingerboard.

High-Grade Electronics

Custom wound Alnico V pickups (SSH configuration) voiced for the perfect modern-vintage sound to give you a vast array of tonal possibilities. From pop, to blues, to rock, to metal, these pickups can help you cover almost any musical style.

Activate the Push/Pull function on the Tone control and the humbucker is split into a single coil pickup, giving you an even wider range of tonal possibilities!

Premium Construction

Usually you'd only find a piece of Quilted Maple topping a professional-grade instrument with a hefty price to match, but that's not the case with the Pacifica 212VQM. The unique wood grain of quilted maple lends itself to the guitar's stunning aesthetic, especially when used in conjunction with the transparent black finish.

On top of that, every inch of this guitar has been meticulously designed and cosntructed to offer you an incredible playing experience, and a guitar that's so good its quality completely belies its asking price.

Slick Hardware

Featuring a new improved tremolo, die-cast chrome tuners, and redesigned smaller, black pick-guard, Yamaha have ensured that the new-look Pacifica retains the business-like looks of those original models, but with a modern edge.

Ideal for All

Whether you're an aspiring professional, or a complete beginner, the Yamaha Pacifica 212VQM can help fulfil your needs.

Lightweight, comfortable to play, and still sitting comfortably in the "Budget Friendly" bracket of guitars, the Yamaha Pacifica 212VQM doesn't compromise one bit on performance.
