If you think about a Yamaha Pacifica, you think about a Stratocaster copy with a traditional tremolo and an HSS pickup configuration. The Yamaha Pacifica 112 introduced in 1994 is one of the most popular guitars for beginners and is often recommended by guitar teachers to their students because of its versatility. The earlier Yamaha Pacificas, developed by Rich Lasner however, featured Floyd Rose tremolos, height-adjustable locking nuts, DiMarzio-made pickups, maple tops and neckthrough constructions among other things. I already wrote a post about some differences between some higher end Yamaha Pacificas where I focused more on the Pacificas with a standard tremolo. In this post I'll focus more on the Yamaha Pacificas featuring a Floyd Rose like tremolo.
