Yamaha unveils limited edition Pacifica 612VII
Two limited models of the electric guitar from the 90s features a dual single-coil, humbucker pickup configuration by Seymour Duncan
Yamaha has unveiled the Pacifica 612VII electric guitar, a limited edition model with only 100 pieces being released in the US. First launched in 1990, the company’s Pacifica series was 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.
The new Pacifica 612VII is a double cut, solid body electric guitar featuring a beveled alder body, rosewood fingerboard and a bolt-on maple neck. The instrument features upgraded name-brand hardware, including a Graph Tech nut and Wilkinson VS50-6 tremolo bridge. A trio of Seymour Duncan pickups, including two SSL-1 single coil pickups in the neck and middle positions and a TB-14 in the bridge combine with five-way switching.
“Bringing a dual single-coil, humbucker configuration to the top end of our Pacifica line of electric guitars provides the guitarist with the ultimate high performance solidly crafted instrument,” says Yamaha’s Armando Vega. “Upgraded materials and high performance components make this an extremely versatile guitar for a variety of playing styles, built for a lifetime of playing enjoyment.”
The Pacifica 612VII will retail at $1,050 (approx. £800) and is available in two limited models: flame-top in either translucent blue or root beer (PAC612VIIFM) and black (PAC612VII), with both models shipping in July. For more information, visit: usa.yamaha.com
