Acoustic Design Technology Produces Balanced Tone
Yamaha Acoustic Design technology utilizes scientific processes such as 3D modeling to devise wood-routing techniques that increase body resonance and improve the transfer of vibrations between neck and body.

Exceptional Playability
With its slim, C-shape neck, carved neck joint heel, beveled body, and compound 10-14" fingerboard radius, the Pacifica Professional is exceptionally easy and comfortable to play.

Slim C-Shape Maple Neck
A modern neck shape that facilitates both comfort and speed, combined with a custom-tinted satin finish for smooth, friction-free playability.

Carved Neck Joint Heel
The smoothly contoured neck heel makes accessing the uppermost frets both comfortable and easy.

Comfortable Contoured Body
The alder body is beveled along the lower bout to increase playing comfort.

Compound-Radius Fingerboard
The 10-14" compound-radius fingerboard enables you to play chords lower on the neck cleanly and accurately, while also making it easier to bend notes higher on the neck while soloing.

Newly Designed Pickups Provide Clear Tone
New Reflectone pickups created in collaboration with Rupert Neve Designs deliver clear and articulate tones with solid lows and sparkling highs, while the HSS pickup configuration combined with coil-splitting capabilities results in outstanding versatility.

Aesthetics Inspired by Japanese City Pop Art
A variety of vibrant finishes were developed jointly by teams in Hamamatsu and Los Angeles, inspired by Japanese city pop art and the sun-soaked vibes of Southern California.

Initial Response Acceleration
Exclusive Initial Response Acceleration (I.R.A.) treatment applied after construction results in an instrument with maximum resonance and sustain.

Rosewood or Maple Fingerboard
Rosewood fingerboards are valued for their warm tone and smooth attack, whereas maple fingerboards provide a brighter tone and snappier attack.

Medium Stainless-Steel Frets
Stainless-steel frets are exceptionally durable, while also lessening resistance when bending strings.

Premium Gotoh Hardware
Gotoh locking tuners, combined with the Gotoh 2-point tremolo bridge, ensure smooth operation and exceptional pitch stability.
