Not just in Quebec. We have 'em here in southern michigan too. (I would assume that means the rest of Michigan as well) As a matter of fact, I've seen maple syrup and brown sugar used for just about anything you can think of.

Re: Pics of my Pacifica

Okay I'm still learning how to attach pictures to threads, but here is a picture of some of my guitars!

Left to right....

Yamaha RGX A2 - Completly stock, I use very heavy guage strings on this guitar.

Yamaha Pacifica 812S - Also completly stock and the only guitar I own with real songle coils in. This is a fantastic guitar!

Yamaha eterna (black) - Modified quite a bit. Seymour duncan pups - hot rail in the bridge and little 59 in the neck, graphite saddles, the trem is blocked and the guitar has been re-wired more times that I can rember!

Yamaha eterna (paint splatter) - the same as above but with a custom paint job, I did it with, and a single hot rail. One vol and no pup selector!

I really love yamaha guitars, Ive played them all of my guitar playing life. For me they feel really good and I think that the pups you have in them are a matter of preferance....also they are one of the few guitars on the market that are very very good quality and very very well priced.

Re: Pics of my Pacifica

Awesome!

I like the 812S best. That's a great one. If only Yamaha still had a double locking tremolo equipped model, in their Pacifica line... They had some really cool models in the past. It's too bad.

Anyway, that's a cool photo, Chris. Thanks for posting.

Re: Pics of my Pacifica

Alwin,

The 812 is an awesome guitar I only got it 4 days ago! I haven't put it down since then either....However, the trem is no Lo Pro. I like to play country pedal steel licks and this trem was no good at all for this sort of playing. Also, it was very very sensitive to any pressure that I put on it with my picking hand, I like to anchor my hand to the bridge in this way. So, I blocked the trem off today! I went outside and found a piece of wood, got a saw and cut it to the right size....amazingly it fit! I had to take two of the springs out the back so the trem sit on the wood 100 percent...but it feels awesome now.

I have a 3rd eterna that I painted but she aint finished yet.


Thanks for looking!

Chris

Very cool Pacifica's there. Has anyone ever played the mid/late 80's models that Rik Emmett use to play during his final years in Triumph?

You should check out the baked beans page on wikipedia. It's fascinating. Apparently, in Quebec they eat them with maple syrup! You could click on the pic above to go there.

Alwin
Yes we do, but i wouldn't say it's that famous a meal - then again if it made it to the Netherlands, than it must be something worth slipping on wikipedia. IF ever you have to visit here for some of our traditional meals, come in winter for the sugar shacks. Plenty of good old style foods and baked beans to boot!

On the other side , we also have some of the worlds fanciest cuisine and dining right in montreal, but expect to dish out big bucks for that
