1994/5 Yamaha Japan PAC 904 & OHSC


Yamaha guitars are always good & the Pacifica is one of the top selling guitars in the world. They start with the 112 which is a good entry level guitar.  However, this Japanese made 904 just blew me away when it came in. Fender make a pretty good Stratocaster. (Well, they did invent it!) This Yamaha Stratocaster is actually better than any Stratocaster I have seen or played in a similar price range. The PAC 904 has long been a favourite of session players all over the world. A combination of Japanese quality construction together with a USA made Warmoth neck that has a compound  fretboard radius make this a top quality guitar. It also features an Alder body with an Ash top. Yamaha's own superb Alnico pickups give it a fabulous sound with many tonal choices available. the "4" in the 904 stands for 4 x pickups as the bridge pickup is actually two single coiled pickups together. This pickup also has the option of a single pickup only via a push/push switch. Other features are locking tuners & a modern 2 point tremolo system. What a guitar!

From what I can establish, the PAC 904 was only made for two years, from 1994-1995. This particular guitar is in excellent condition. There were a couple of more noticeable scratches on the body which i have taken out and a lacquer crack on the back where the two piece Alder body was joined. This has now been filled flattened and polished & is invisible. All in all this guitar is superb. No noticeable fret wear and everything working exactly as it should
