Although the Pacifica 112 J is incredibly affordable, Yamaha has still constructed the body from alder. This incredibly musical wood type has a beautiful, full sound with great balance between lows, mids and highs, and is typically found on models in more expensive price classes. Maple is used for the neck, which is equipped with a 22-fret rosewood fingerboard. Thanks to Yamaha's sleek, thin profile design, the neck is super comfortable and easy to play. The bridge is a tremolo bridge which can tilt in the middle with the included handle to create subtle or dramatic vibrato effects. Furthermore, the Pacifica 112J is equipped with a set of strong, stable closed die-cast oil bath tuners.
Versatile H-S-S pickup configuration
The Yamaha Pacifica 112 J has an H-S-S pickup configuration, meaning there is a humbucker in the bridge position and single-coils in the middle and by the neck. The humbucker has a cool sound with a high output making it ideal for rougher music, like hard rock and metal. The single-coils have a more vintage output and a tight, clear sound. This combination makes the Pacifica 112 incredibly versatile and capable of adapting to diverse playing and music styles. Finally, you'll find volume and tone knobs on the top of the guitar, plus a 5-way switch for choosing between the sounds from the 3 pickups or combinations thereof.
