Description: 

The Yamaha Pacifica 712 is a made-in-Taiwan strat like guitar similar to the Yamaha Pacifica 912 but lacks the DiMarzio pickups and features an alder body in contrast to a swamp ash body on the Yamaha Pacifica 912. Like the 912 it features a Total Access Neck Joint, a compound radius neck and a Vintage Pro II bridge. The Yamaha pickups (HSS configuration) have staggered pole pieces and the tuners are made in Japan.
