    Re: Yamaha Pacifica 510V

    One thing is for sure, these Yamaha Pacificas offer a lot of bang for the buck if you ask me!!
    Top notch hardware, from A to Z...making for a very high quality guitar!
    If you can miss a neck (and/or middle pickup) the 510V would be a very nice addition to your colection Artie. And if you want more then just a bridge pickup, you can always add another pickup, the bodies most likely are routed for it.

        I've not played the 712

        Thanks
        So how is the neck of 510V related to fender necks for instance, C profile? Thicker, thinner?

          Can anyone who's owned a Pacifica confirm what sort of routing they have?

            The ones I have seen had the "swimming pool" routing (one big rectangular routing with place for H-S-H) and one higher end model had a H-S-H routing, but I think that model did not have a pickguard.

              It seems like a D-shaped neck almost in a 90s Fender Jeff Beck Strat neck
              Chunky like a 50s LP but with wide fingerboard

                Eww, I don't think I'd like it. I have played Pacificas that had smaller necks that I thought were wonderful, though.

                  I recently got a Pacifica 611VFM that has this same neck and I like it. A little thicker than the standard Pacifica neck, but not too thick IMO.

                    Ha, one of the few things keeping me from the 510 and 611 is the fact the neck profile might be too thin for me.

                    The several I've played have felt like a Fender Modern C with a flatter radius. The Fender Modern C often means hand cramps for me, so I'd want something bigger.

                      Hey. Did this got already discontinued! I've checked them out online, when get gas for another guitar and couldn't find them available anymore anywhere?

                      Now if one comes on sale I apparently HAVE to buy instead of talking sense to myself
