Yamaha Pacifica 112 V, Sonic Blue


The Yamaha Pacifica 112 V Electric Guitar redefines Yamaha's most affordable electric guitar once again, with the launch of an all-new Pacifica 112. When the Pacifica 112 was launched in 1993, it turned the entry-level guitar market on its head. At the time, most guitars in its price-range featured low-grade appointments, often including cheap hardware, low quality pickups and plywood bodies. Now, this updated model offers a top quality alder body with a maple neck, and features custom wound pickups with alnico v magnets for that classic sound. Along with a full host of control features and vintage tremolo, the Pacifica 112 V is the perfect choice for any level of player.

Superb Quality at a Good Price

The Pacifica 112's quality hardware, custom wound pickups and consistently good setup said that this was a serious instrument built to sound great and play just as well. The striking natural finish gave away one more crucial feature - that this guitar had a solid body. In one move Yamaha had wiped away the certainty that your guitar would be made from cheap, heavy, bad-sounding plywood if your budget only stretched to £200.

Solid Alder Body

Years after the original Pacifica 112 was launched, Yamaha are set to redefine the affordable electric guitar once again with the launch of an all-new Pacifica 112. Pacifica 112V's solid Alder body, still setting the standard for body construction while similarly priced guitars use cheaper, inferior wood types, now features the trademark Pacifica short scratchplate to allow the single coil pickups to be scratchplate mounted while the humbucker is mounted on the body - our preferred method of mounting the 2 different types of pickup.


A new hardware package with an all-new block-saddle trem, chrome knobs and 3-ply scratchplate keeps everything in control and the brand-new, custom wound Alnico V SSH pickups, voiced for the perfect modern-vintage tone and complete with push/pull coil tap fitted as standard, ensure that great tone and versatility are guaranteed. Yamaha's reputation for high quality completes the package for Pacifica 112V with class-leading fretwork, set-up and consistency while 6 finish options, including the classic natural satin and custom-mixed finishes like Raspberry Red and the brand-new Sonic Blue, give Pacifica 112V the looks to match its performance.


  • Solid North American Alder offer lightweight comfort
  • Equipped Pacifica 112V’s custom wound pickups feature Alnico V magnets to deliver the perfect balance of warmth and clarity
