Description: 

The Yamaha Pacifica 1421 is a Japanese super-strat developed by Rich Lasner. The Yamaha Pacifica 1421 has a neck-through construction with a maple neck and a basswood body. On top of the body is a maple top. The pickups are USA made DiMarzio's. The brochure says it has a DSNB single coil and 2 DHB1 humbuckers in an HSH pickup configuration. I can't be conclusieve about which pickups these are. On some forums/websites it is mentioned that the single coils are DiMarzio HS-2's. And the humbucker could be a PAF Pro. It could also be that the humbucker is the same as the Yamaha Pacifica 1212 which is the DiMarzio P3 which is the OEM version of the DiMarzio Steve's Special.
