2004 Yamaha PAC-412V Violin Sunburst & new Hard Case


Made in Korea

Yamaha do make a nice guitar. Yes, the Japanese made models are awesome but the majority of Yamaha's stuff is great & I took a shine to these PAC-412V's that were built in Korea around 2004-2005 a few years ago. I have had several now & I always keep my eye out for them. Around the same time a factory in Korea (maybe Samick?) was building these for Yamaha and also the Squier Esprits & the Fender TC-90s. I can't be 100% sure that the same factory made all of them but they are all of a similar build quality.

The Korean made PAC-412V has an Alder body with binding on the top edge, a satin finish Maple neck with rosewood fretboard & an H/S/S pickup configuration. That together with a modern 2 point tremolo system & good quality sealed tuners result in a really good Stratocaster style guitar that shouldn't be overlooked

Hard Case

As said many times, all my guitars come shipped in a new black hard case which is included in the price. I find this is the safest way to avoid damage in transit. This case can be upgraded to a very nice tweed one but these are an additional £12 each at present.Please contact me before purchasing if you would like this. Alternatively, if you are collecting the guitar and, like some buyers have cases coming out of their ears, that's no problem, I'll adjust the price (usually around a £30 discount) and I can usually find you an old gigbag to take the guitar away in. The only hard and fast rule I have is that i won't ship a guitar in a gigbag

If you are further interested in this guitar, you can either email me with any queries & I'll do my best to get back to you within 24 hours.

Or, you can buy easily and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button. Don't forget to select the right option using the drop down menu on price, i.e. Collection, UK shipping or EU shipping. If in doubt, please email me first as Highlands & Islands can sometimes be a little dearer for shipping
