The Yamaha Pacifica 212VQM Electric Guitar in Translucent Black is an outstanding model that offers sublime performance at an affordable price. Having developed a reputation for producing excellent instruments, Yamaha have used their expertise to craft a guitar that is perfect for all players from beginner to pro. Whether you're practising at home, jamming with friends, recording in the studio or performing in front of an adoring audience, the Yamaha 212VQM will be a reliable companion.

Elegant body shape

The Yamaha Pacifica 212VQM is shaped to a recognisable double-cutaway body profile, with sleek contours and curves in all the right places. Whether you're playing in a seated or a standing position, the guitar sits comfortably with ready access afforded to the neck its entirety. The body is built using a combination of lightweight Alder and Maple, a tonewood that is noted for its balanced tonal character with a confident midrange energy. The 212VQM features a stunning quilted Maple top that will look striking on any stage, as well as reinforcing the body Tonewood to enhance the classy tones.

Responsive yet sturdy neck

Bolted on to the body is a slender maple neck, shaped to a C-shaped profile for a manageable feel in the hand. As is now staple for the Pacifica range you'll immediately feel at home here, with legato and string bends coming effortlessly. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 medium frets that are lavished with dot position inlays to guide your way. The 350mm fingerboard radius provides a flatter surface to hone your technique on.

Versatile electronics

To make the most of the alder's versatility, the Pacifica 212VQM is equipped with a humbucker in the bridge position, and a pair of single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions. With Alnico V magnets you get a well-rounded sound that's more than versatile enough to handle a variety of sounds, whether you're a clean plucker or a high gain chugger. The intuitive control layout consists of a master volume knob, a 5-way pickup selector switch, and a master tone pot with push-pull coil tap abilities to extend your tonal arsenal even further. To enhance tone the bridge pickup is mounted directly on the body rather than pickguard, this ensures that all that beautiful body resonance is captured, giving you a thicker and fuller tone.

Gig-ready hardware

The body is home to a vintage-style tremolo bridge with block saddles, which anchors each string supportively to enhance intonation and sustain whilst affording seamless vibrato control. The headstock is fitted with die-cast tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity with dutiful precision throughout each and every performance.

The Yamaha Pacifica 212VQM in Translucent Black is a guitar that will satisfy beginners along with even the most experienced players. Coming as a shock to the entry market when first unveiled in 1993, the Pacifica range has helped push the boundaries on what defines entry-level and will find a place in any discerning guitar player's arsenal.
