Yamaha Pacifica 112VM, Gray
The class-leading Yamaha Pacifica 112VM combines player-focused, stage-ready spec with no-compromise construction and set-up to create the best value player’s guitar on the market.
The maple fingerboard on Pacifica 112VM delivers strong attack and great response. Together with Alnico pickups and coil-tap function, it inspires all players with its dynamic sound both on and off the stage.
Alnico V magnets are used for both single coil and humbucker to deliver a clear strumming tone with good projection plus a tight sound that doesn't get buried in the ensemble. A coil tap function on the rear humbucker delivers a wide range of tonal possibilities, from hard distortion to an edgy single coil tone. A switch in the tone knob allows quick switching between humbucker and single coil tone. Setting the pickup selector to the 4th position automatically selects the coil tap function that delivers a clear halftone from the pair of singles.
The block saddle type vintage tremolo offers excellent operation. The heavy block type saddle delivers rich sustain and deep tone. Like the top-end Pacifica models, the rear pickup is mounted directly to the body. This configuration captures body resonance, delivering greater dynamic tone rather than pickguard mounting.
