best beginner guitar

30.07.2016
The 120H is one of the rarer Yamaha Pacificas. I found Thomann while searching for a place to buy the 120H. The Yamaha Pacifica 120H is such a versatile guitar and really nice looking too! (mine was vintage white) This was my first guitar was really surprised by many different kinds of sounds I could get out of it. Now having played many different guitars, and I can say that this guitar really is one of the best of its price range! I've received countless compliments about how great it looks, sounds and plays.

Feel: It feels great, the satin neck is smooth and the body is contoured and comfortable to play both sitting and standing. I could keep playing it for hours. My friends agree that it is really fun to play. The guitar feels very rigid and sturdy and could last years. In the five months I've had it, I also could not see any scratches or signs of wear, aside from a little on the scratch plate. The tuners are firm and resist going out of tune, never had any problems with it. Very well built.

Sound: This guitar's layout is great for learning how to create a guitar sound. The humbuckers are versatile and allow you to achieve metal and jazz tones, but when tapped, allows you to achieve many rock and blues sounds. It has a good metal sound, because the bridge humbucker has a really fat sound through distortion. I never noticed any hum with the split coils. The sustain is pretty average. Overall, it doesn't feel like a guitar tailored or limited to any genres.

Cons:
Because this guitar wouldn't specialise in any music, but rather generally manage any genre, this is where you may fall short. I found myself limited with this guitar in trying to replicate an exact sound. You wouldn't be able to match a fender's brightness, or a Les Paul's tone, or a jazz guitar's mellowness. I'm no metalhead but one thing I feel it did do better at was high gain metal. If you're a beginner looking for a very particular sound, definitely go for a Squier, or Epiphone.
Aside from this, very few downsides to the Pacifica. For one, the scale length felt a little on the long side (probably personal preference), having to stretch my fingers a little. Also, the input plug seemed to be coming loose at one point, but is easily fixed by rotating it back in to place. Also the pickup selected is poorly placed because when strumming you can accidentally change the pickup position, but it didn't happen too often.

Other Pacifica models: Its counterpart the 112V is a little different where the neck Humbucker is replaced with a middle and neck single coil, along with a whammy bar. While I considered the 112V at first, the 120H's Humbuckers and coil tap appealed to me a lot more, and I don't regret this decision.

To summarise, the Pacifica 120H is a very versatile, comfortable and sturdy beginner guitar that really helps you develop and improve your guitar playing and find your own sound. While it may not specialise in any department, it will manage most of everything. However, if you really want a specific sound, I would go for something more tailored like a Squier or Epiphone. Otherwise, I'd really recommend this guitar to anyone just starting out.

Excellente guitare à tout faire !

Pierre573, 13.01.2017
Raison de mon achat :

J'ai acheté cette guitare pour me remettre à la guitare électrique à moindre frais, mais sans non plus tomber dans du bas de gamme et mes attentes ont été comblées.

Points positifs :

- Ergonomie (forme standard, manche jouable facilement, guitare ni trop légère ni trop lourde) ;
- Palette sonore (deux micros double bobinage splitables ensemble et sélecteur trois positions, donc 6 configurations possibles, pour des sons allant de cleans propres à bien rocks) ;
- Sons (les micros sonnent mieux que ce à quoi on pourrait s'attendre pour une guitare à moins de 300¤) ;
- Esthétique (la finition beige est encore plus jolie quand on a la guitare dans les mains, ce qui n'est pas négligeable car ça donne envie de jouer) ;
- Finition (bien qu'on s'y attende en achetant Yamaha, il est toujours bon de le confirmer : la lutherie est très propre).

Point négatif :

- Réglage de volume et de tonalité (ce réglage est commun aux deux micros, donc on ne peut pas faire de balance grave/aigu directement sur la guitare, il faut passer par l'ampli, c'est dommage).

Conclusion :

A ce prix, on aurait tord de s'en priver ! Si on ne cherche pas une guitare avec une personnalité très spécifique mais plutôt une jolie guitare à tout faire, simple et propre, il me semble que c'est un très bon choix (en tout cas je le referais).
