I think you scored. I have a Pacifica 12 string. Stratlike rather than tele-ish but really nice guitar.

Ive played and set up my friends Pacifica. Also, this one was more of a strat then a tele. I really liked it, very well made instrument for the money. In general i think Yamaha makes great products, though they often lack a soul in their voice.
very precise, calculating instruments.
my other friends  Yamaha electric bass guitar is excellent for what it is (cheap and well worn). sound and plays as it should.

Pacificas came in several models, some that would set you back a couple of thousand US dollars. Had a few high end Yamahas including Pacificas...the Pac 10th anniversary and USA II strat types...as good as anything I see hanging in local shops, and even the low end Pacs have fabulous necks, at least I always thought so.

Feel the Yamaha love! After my Larrivées, they are my second favourite guitars. I have four of them.

  Well,I,ll tell ya,I have a very nice high end PRS that continues to sit in it,s case while I play the pacifica I mean this guitar is a pine body tele copy the neck is straight and very easy to work with so it goes to show you I,ve heard of great players who play great gigs with $300 guitars.

I did a setup on a Pacifica HSS Strat clone about a year ago for a regular client.  I was impressed with the build quality, hardware, playability and sound of that guitar.  I forget the model number, but I know it was one of Yamaha's cheaper ones in terms of retail price.  Very good value guitars are Yamahas IMHO.  I see many Yamahas, both electric and acoustic for sale on Kijiji and often am surprised at how little money, relatively speaking, sellers are asking for them.

Well, you can always ask more but you won't get it. I've been offering my Yamaha drop 6 baritone for sale for a couple months with no takers. Asking $300.00. Paid more than twice that and it's pretty much mint.

Yeah, that's what I meant.  You would think you could get more for them especially when you compare them to which brands are their competition for the same price.  Maybe it's because there are so many of them out there?  I wouldn't doubt they are one of the biggest manufacturers of guitars world wide, no?

I'm sure they are up there. I always assumed Samick was the worlds largest in volume but thats been my thought for 10 years surly it may have changed. I'm sure Yamaha must be up there and really up there if you include all the other different instruments they make. Good Question!!!!

Still for sale?  I know a guy who is really disappointed he sold a Fender that was similar - sold only for a few years in the 90's.
