A Yamaha Pacifica was also my first guitar. That guitar and I went to hell and back and I learned a LOT on it before moving on to Ibanez guitars
. For what I got it for brand new, it was an EXCELLENT guitar and I remember getting compliments about it from all the people that I knew who had been playing guitars for years. But now, it's sitting somewhere in my drummer's house with rusty strings and a dusty body becuase my Ibanez guitars totally blow it away in every department. If I ever find it again, I'm going to change the strings on it and take it up to my guitar tech
to have him adjust it. Really, the only thing wrong with the guitar is that it needs better pickups and a neck adjustment.
