Even with orthodox Bolt-on structure, Pacifica series has been constructed to respond to various genres and play styles. Its PU configuration provides a wide range of sound character from bottomless heavy distortion to clear-cut clean sound.

PACIFICA611H

Neck : Seymour Duncan / SP90-1

Wound with plain enamel wire on a 1950's Leesona winding machine, the SP90-1's tone is a faithful reproduction of the original soapbar pickups. Short, wide bobbins give a higher output and more powerful midrange than conventional single-coils for a fat neck pickup tone with clarity impossible to achieve with humbucking pickups.

Bridge : Seymour Duncan / Custom 5 TB-14

Like a higher-output version of the classic '59 humbucker, the Custom 5 was developed in response to players customizing their SH-5 Custom or SH-11 Custom pickups with Alnico 5 magnets for a more vintage, less distorted tone but retaining a deeper bottom end than the stock '59

PACIFICA612VII

Neck: Seymour Duncan / SSL-1 , Center ; Seymour Duncan / SSL-1 RwRp

Hand ground alnico 5 rod magnets and heavy Formvar magnet wire with a special wind pattern produce vintage, classical sound. The treble attack is crisp and immediate, while the low end remains rich and focused . 

Bridge : Seymour Duncan / Custom 5 TB-14

Trembucker version of Custom 5 humbucker. This even response makes it great for all types of music, great for both clean and dirty sounds.

PACIFICA510V

Seymour Duncan Trembucker P-Rails

Exclusive to Yamaha Guitars, the trembucker version of the revolutionary P-Rails pickup offers full humbucker tone in position 1, soapbar single coil in position 2 and regular single coil in position 3.

PACIFICA212V / 112V

Alnico V Pickups

Alnico V magnets are used for both the single coil and humbucking pickups to deliver a warm, clear tone that won’t get buried in the mix.

Ring mount rear pickup

The rear pickup is mounted directly on the body. This configuration captures body resonance, giving a thicker, fuller tone than mounting directly on the pickguard.
