The Yamaha Pacifica 120H Electric Guitar in Black is a fantastic model for players who want a comfortable to play, tonally versatile model at an affordable price. Known for turning out guitars of consistently high quality, the Pacifica PAC120H is a fine example of what Yamaha do best.
Sleek and comfortable body
The body of the Pacifica 120H adheres to a familiar deep double-cutaway profile with ergonomically designed curves in all the right places, establishing a delightfully snug feel during performances. Built using lightweight and tonally balanced alder, the body is finished in a sleek black finish paired with a 3-ply black pickguard to offer protection against unwanted nicks and scrapes. A subtle yet resilient gloss polyurethane finish protects the paintwork to preserve it for as long as possible.
Sturdy, highly playable neck
Joined to the body is a glorious maple neck, which is shaped to a comfortable "C"-shape profile for a substantial yet manageable feel in the hand. The satin polyurethane finish allows the hand to sail along freely, preventing unwanted stickiness or tackiness from forming and holding you back. Paired with the neck is a sumptuous rosewood fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that are adorned with dot position inlays to guide your way in understated fashion. The 25.5-inch scale length upholds a consistent feel across each string, whilst encouraging a sparkling character. The 13-3/4-inch fingerboard radius affords a flatter feel that enables the fretting hand to seamlessly transition between strings.
The Pacifica 120H is equipped with a pair of Alnico V powered humbuckers fitted in the neck and bridge positions. The smooth yet powerful output offered by the pickups allows you to segue between any musical genre with ease, whilst the control layout makes the most of their versatility. The Master Tone pot is equipped with a push-pull coil-tap switch, which turns the dual-coil humbuckers into single-coils, producing a grittier output that is a little less tame. From clean country to raucous hard rock, these beauties can do it all.
Fitted to the body is a stable hardtail bridge, which anchors each string securely to establish a flush connection between strings and body. The result is optimised intonation and sustain throughout the most demanding of performances. The headstock is home to die-cast tuning machines, which uphold tuning integrity dutifully. Each model is strung with a set of D'Addario EXL120 / 0.009-0.042 strings, so once yours arrives you just need to tune up, plug in, and rock out.
