Awesome little deal on Pacificas

Gak.co.uk has got a deal on here... http://www.guitarampkeyboard.com/en/...fica112mx/1272

Check out the spec. I'm pretty tempted to grab a hold of one of these because I've played a couple of Pacificas over the years and they're pretty tasty guitars ESPECIALLY for the price. Maple fretboard? Alder body? yes please! The hardware isn't particularly impressive, neither is the pickups, but that would make this a great project guitar.

All for £139

Veeeery tempted...

Hopefully someone snags one

Re: Awesome little deal on Pacificas

My 1st guitar was a Pacifica 012.
The model previous to the 112, and it was the best guitar I could ever have learned on. I was so grateful for my old guitar tutor recommending me it, because it payed-off when I was first learning.

My friend had a 112 with the rosewood fretboard, and it was even better than the 012 that I owned. They are really sweet guitars actually, with a very nice neck profile I remember.

But this is a great little deal yeah, especially for someone just learning or to throw around as a project.

Re: Awesome little deal on Pacificas

'Awesome deal' is a bit of an overstatement. Thats pretty much the standard online price for a pacifica 112. Thomann will ship one to the uk for 145GBP.

Re: Awesome little deal on Pacificas

Not a bad price at all.

They're also doing the Jackson JS-1 and JS20 for £159. I can vouch that the Jackson JS range is amazing value for money. I've even gigged my JS30 and it stood up realy well.

Re: Awesome little deal on Pacificas

Dude, I'd say go for it! I own a PAC604W and it sounds and plays amazing. The neck is so great... And soundwise, the guitar has a lot of character. You can't go wrong with a Pacifica.

Re: Awesome little deal on Pacificas

Pacificas are GREAT. My friend has a huge collection of the relatively older American made Pacificas. They are great, almost of J-Custom quality.

Re: Awesome little deal on Pacificas

Anyone know what years they had them with the funky 3/4 pickguard that didn't have the humbucker mounted in it? I prefer the way they look than the typical strat pickguard they now offer. Judging from when I remember them new, it was pre-2000 I am guessing 1995-2000, but would like more accurate info than my memory. I always wanted one of the cheapo PAC 112's with maple fretboard, satin finished stained body.
