Welcome to the forum and the string section. :D

You're welcome to start a topic in "want to buy" as well.

To keep your topic visible, you can bump it every now and then by posting more, a few pictures are welcome too.

You can start searches on ebay and reverb as well. :wink:

Best Regards

Welcome to the forum they will be the same width at the nut 41mms but not the same neck. The 912 has a Warmoth neck with compound radius the 512 has a standard Taiwan neck whether or not it's compound radius I don't know. I'll have a look at my catalogues to see what more I can find.

Also made at the same time was a 712 which will have the same neck as the 512. The 921 and all the 904s have the same neck as the 912 the 904 series pickup configuration is very similar to the 912 as they just have 2 single coils in the place where the 912 has a humbucker. Can't see much more about the 512. Hope this helps.

There is a nice 912 for a great price on Reverb. If I didn't have my Pacifica 1221 MS, I would be on it.

I have a 604 and a 921. I think the 604 neck would be the same as a 512. The neck has the same access to the higher frets, but it does have a different feel to it in comparison to the 921 Warmoth neck. I like the Warmoth neck a little bit better, but it’s not
a major deal. If you find a 912 at a good price, make sure that it has the original Dimarzio pickups. They are excellent.
I upgraded the pickups in my 604 to Dimarzios. It sounds & plays awesome, but I’ve got over $500 in it. That’s not bad for a high
quality guitar, but sadly you can find a 912 for less if you stay patient.
If I ever sell my 604, I’ll likely put the original pickups back in . The plan is to keep it !

I believe that only the 904 had a Warmoth neck.

You may be right as always official info is hard to get lots of people including the much respected Axebition say the 912 and the 921 have Warmoth necks but Yamaha's own literature is not clear. I may have a bit of a dig and see if I can find anything definite either way on this.

I believe the 904 is the only one they've ever offered with a Warmoth neck. The Warmoth logo (or lack thereof) on the back of the headstock is a clear indicator. Along with that, no other Pacifica's had a compound radius fretboard or Dunlop frets, either.
