YAMAHA GUITARS PACIFICA 611HFM RB
First launched in 1990, the Pacifica series was driven by the California session scene of the day-where versatility, performance and individuality were key. Inspired by those custom-shop guitars, and that original version, PAC611HFM is today's embodiment of the Pacifica concept.

Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut and string tree
TUSQ XL is precision engineered to couple the strings vibrations to the neck and bring out hidden
harmonics and richness in every note. 500 times more slippery than graphite, the Teflon-impregnated
material eliminates string-binging and ensures tuning stability, even with massive string bends.
Seymour Duncan Custom 5
Like a higher-output version of the classic ’59 humbucker, the Custom 5 was developed in response
to players customizing their SH-5 Custom or SH-11 Custom pickups with Alnico 5 magnets for a
more vintage, less distorted tone but retaining a deeper bottom end than the stock ’59.
Seymour Duncan SP90-1
Wound with plain enamel wire on a 1950’s Leesona winding machine, the SP90-1’s tone is
a faithful reproduction of the original soapbar pickups. Short, wide bobbins give a higher
output and more powerful midrange than conventional single-coils for a fat neck pickup
tone with clarity impossible to achieve with humbucking pickups.
