I didn't know this guitar. It's also not expensive. I wonder how good
the factory's action and factory's octave's adjustment are.


This guy starts with a Jimi Hendrix alike sounds and kind of playing.
Too funny, since I'm much influenced by Jimi Hendrix myself. For that
kind of sound and playing my Ibanez Blazer is much better than my new
Schecter. Actually the sound of the Yamaha Pacifica is like an old
Hendrix Start (IMO not very different as the author claims) + humbucker
guitars, while the PUs of my Ibanez aren't that close to a Hendrix
Strat, but at least the flow when playing my Ibanez is the same. When
playing the Schecter, it's a cleaner, less emotional flow and likely
just a 80's until today modern heavy guitar sound. Unfortunately the
Yamaha Pacifica 611HFM the guy in the video plays has got no whammy
bar, but there are seemingly some available with a whammy bar.
