Yamaha Pacifica 912j

Unread post by Asmikace » Fri Apr 26, 2019 6:22 pm

Here is the other surprise, my Pacifica 912J. A month or so ago I acquired a nice Yamaha strat hardshell case for $40 and wanted to fill it with a guitar. I been eying on some Pacifica 912s with no case or tremolo arm but saw a 912j with a case and arm for a better deal. We exchange offers to get a reasonable deal and got it yesterday. Great guitar as always. The RM2 tremolo is nice, nice body shape and weight, and roaring dimarzios making it a great guitar. My favorite is the finish, love that honey natural grain.

Again, great guitar ((i))

With this tempo of finding great guitars I'm curious how much Yamaha's you've gathered till now ....... 8-) ?

And believe me..... I'm tempted a lot by great modern Yamaha guitars. But as a vintage Yamaha collector I feel I have to let them go...... and sometimes that hurts :?

So you bought a case and that was an excuse for buying another guitar. That's one I haven't used yet.
Nice axe and I agree that the natural finish is sweet.

I am afraid to count. I usually buy guitars with my overtime money with per diem with little overhead and when I do get off, I do sell guitars and other stuff I find to make extra money on my off time. To be honest, I only buy guitars if I can get my money back or make extra money if possible. For a $1500-2000 Gibson, I can buy 3-6 Yamaha of similar quality.

NYGeorge, if I am going to if I can get lucky again at a pawn shop to finally stuff that case.

I recommend getting a 912 for a better price and a standard tremolo. I was learning towards it since i was worried with dealing with another locking tremolo especially with the RM 1 on my Image. The RM2 is a much better improvment and had no problems with the tuning after getting it set up.

No matter what 900 level pacifica you get, its still going to be a great guitar.
