Yamaha Pacifica 612VIIFMX and 612VIIX Electric Guitars Feature New Colors and Premium Components…
Yamaha today announced two new Pacifica models in the PAC612 electric guitar lineup, featuring striking new finishes and updated hardware.
Yamaha has been making guitars since 1942, and the company’s Pacifica series, first launched in 1990, were inspired by the California session scene of the day, where versatility, consistent performance night after night and the flexibility to capture an artist’s individuality were driving factors. One of the best electric guitar values since its inception, Yamaha Pacifica guitars are well known for great tone and outstanding playability – ideal for any level of gigging guitarist.
The new Pacifica models combine renowned Yamaha build quality and playability with premium third-party components, recalling their LA custom shop roots.
Seymour Duncan TB-14 Custom 5 and SSL-1 single-coil pickups deliver warm and powerful sounds, while a five-position pickup selector and push-pull coil-split deliver tonal versatility. Graph Tech TUSQ nuts and strings trees, Grover locking tuners and Wilkinson VS50 bridges ensure optimal performance and exceptional tuning stability. Both the PAC612VIIFMX and PAC612VIIX feature alder bodies with bolt-on maple necks and rosewood fretboards.
The Pacifica 612VIIFMX sports a flamed-maple veneer top with a Fire Red finish, and the Pacifica 612VIIX is available in Matte Silk Blue (exclusively at Sweetwater), Teal Green Metallic and Yellow Natural Satin.

The Yamaha Pacifica 612VIIFMX and 612VIIX electric guitars (MSRP: $1,050.00) are currently shipping.
