This was my first guitar. After looking around on here, and reading the reviews, I decided to buy this guitar. Let me tell you, I played and/or heard PS Santanas, Gibsons, Fenders; all the top brands. So, I had my doubts when I read the reviews on here saying that this guitar could match up to them. All of my doubts were eventually proven wrong when I got this guitar. Now, I'm not saying that this actually is a Gibson or anything, but it's got the sound and quality of one, especially in relation to its price. It is absolutely amazing, and it's a steal, too. I would buy this guitar even if it was priced higher, because it's worth it. The comments about the comfortable neck action are so true- it is so comfortable, and light! I would recommend this guitar to beginners, intermediates, and pros. Definitely a 5/5 in my book. Also, Music123 made the transaction so quick and easy. Great job on the guitar, Yamaha.

This guitar is a good guitar especially for the price. It was set up perfectly right out of the box. I've had a few problems with it though;after a few weeks the pick up selector didn't work as well as it should, I have to shake it around a bit to select a pickup. Also the jack plug is held in buy plastic. Be careful not to step on the jack while you are standing, you risk breaking the plastic and pulling out the jack plug; that happened to me.

AWSOME !!!!

By Micky P

from UK

Comments about Yamaha PAC012 Electric Guitar:

This is a fantastic guitar especially for the price. ive had my guitar over 5 years and it still works perfectly. i am even going to upgrade the pickups with gibson ones because i love this guitar so much. unlike fender squiers and similar priced guitars this can actually handle live performance without sounding like a cheap, nasty guitar.for the price best guitar money can buy. FACT. pickups sound great on clean or overdrive. very versatile. GREAT !!! =D

Very nice, clean guitar

By Andy-dmXhB

from Stewartstown, PA

Comments about Yamaha PAC012 Electric Guitar:

This is my first guitar and it's made learning the guitar very, very fun. The guitar stays in tune very well and has a very nice feel. It plays well and the action is fantastic. My bro-in-law and neighbor who have both played for 20+ years just love this guitar. Excellent choice for early on playing and getting started ..!!

pretty good guitar

Comments about Yamaha PAC012 Electric Guitar:

I have had this guitar for about 4 months and I have only had one problem with it... mine broke in the second week. As for playing it sounds just as good as any other guitar 200-300$ and it stays in tune quite well. The pickup sometimes gets a little messed up but that might just be my guitar. I recommend this guitar for starters.

Great guitar !

By John-iu3cV

Comments about Yamaha PAC012 Electric Guitar:

All around great guitar my second guitar cheap and great for beginers. You can turn up the guitar's treble for a high scream or low for a low chunky sound for metal punk.

The guitar is great it is the best guitar I've ever had

By Roberto Herodier

from El Salvador

Comments about Yamaha PAC012 Electric Guitar:

This guitar rocks. It is just like the Fender Stratocaster. It provides a unique sound on clean and distortion channel. It is the best guitar I've ever had. I've played Gibsons, Fenders, and a lot of top brands and this one is just like them and some times, even better.

THE BEST

By Dave-RKzqT

from Carthage NY

Comments about Yamaha PAC012 Electric Guitar:

This guitar has been the only guitar I've owned. I've have been playing for about 4 years and have no intention of getting another guitar. The neck is out-of-this-world comfortable, so much so that I can play very complicated very quick solos on it. I would recommend this guitar to anyone and everyone. I'm very proud to tell others that I own it.
