2004 Yamaha PAC-412V Old Violin Sunburst MIK & new hard case
£299.00 + shipping
The Yamaha PAC-412V is a lesser known Yamaha that I have been banging on about for years! No, the model number isn't that unusual but the majority were made in Taiwan and there was nothing that special about them. A decent workhorse Strat with 2 single coils and a humbucker at the bridge. However, some were made in Korea and the most noticeable thing about them is the finish which looks fab & the body binding is cream. I don't know if they were made at the Samick or Peerless facility or maybe somewhere else but the build quality is excellent and, in my opinion, match many MIM Standard Stratocasters. A really nice strat for around £300 with a new hard case that I could gig with all day long!
This particular guitar is in very good condition for its age. There were a couple of dents on the back which have been repaired. You can see the slightly darker areas on the back near the tremolo cover in the gallery photos. Overall, there are a few scratches but nothing significant and no indents on the frets. Overall I think it's an excellent guitar for under £300 & including a brand new 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. 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 £50 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 quickly and safely using the PayPal "buy now" button and I will ship to most UK addresses the next working day. Highlands and Islands can be slightly dearer but I'll keep the cost as low as I can.
I can accept credit card payments by phone and will also offer a small discount to purchasers using bank transfer payments.
Overseas customers are very welcome but please email me first for shipping quotes.
