Yamaha Pacifica Standard Plus PACS+12M review

Yamaha Pacifica Standard Plus PACS+12M review

Unlike most major manufacturers, Yamaha doesn’t flood the market with new guitar models every five minutes. Last year’s Revstar Mk II models arrived nearly seven years after the original series was introduced, and earlier this year, the first new Pacifica guitars were announced more than a decade after the previous introductions.

The Pacifica dates back to 1990, designed by a small team at the then-new Hollywood-based R&D centre. It began life as a top-end ‘SuperStrat’ and achieved tremendous sales in the 112-start format, which was introduced around three years later and is still produced today.
