Hi all,

I'm a beginning player, and until now an acoustic player.
I chose to stay acoustic until i had bar chords mastered.
(well not mastered, but i don't trip over myself anymore when i use one )

And so i've decided i'm going to start to play electric aswell from now on.
I'm looking for a cheap, but good guitar to practise on and progress.
After looking around a bit, and reading what i could find. My eye landed on the
Yamaha Pacifica 112v.

I was wondering if anyone had some user info that could confirm that it's a good buy or point me far far away from it.....
Keep in mind that it is my first electric and will be used (and abused) for practice.
No gigs, unless the cat count's as an audience....
So please don't point me in the direction of a 1000€ or more monster...

Thanks in advance!

I had a 112C as my first electric, wasnt very satisfied with it. Eventually I sold it for a Douglas at rondomusic then sold that for an SX at rondomusic.com

Check out the SX guitars, you will probably find a better guitar for the same price.

Well i'm spending around 250€ on the guitar. (not going in deeper yet)
So i'll take the advice and look a bit further.

All tips are still welcome!

It might help if i added this:

Prefferred music style is very broad. I'll play anything i like, and so a versatile guitar is handy.

was my first guitar watch out for fret buzz on the high e-string and pick ups may need adjustment to your taste. Butt its a great allround guitar hard to beat for its price

my tuners don't lock so well xD i might change them the pickup gives too much high if ur volume knob on 10/10 on clean so i would it is a good guitar but i think it's not that good xD (talking about yamaha pacifica 112v)

i would go for a squier (becarefull some can be great and others very crappies), ibanez or cort

you've gotta tell me, u want tremolo?
you want one with good pickups for rythm(less distortion)
one with pickups for rythm and other with distortion.
and form counts too no matter how good the guitar can be if you don't like her style u probly won't play much on her.

here you go gutu:

1. A tremelo isn't something i specifically want, so guitars that don't have one are also options.

2. This: one with pickups for rythm and other with distortion.

3. Amp i got covered, a mate gave me his VoX VT15 since he doesn't use it anymore.

Remember, i'm looking for a guitar that's going to last me about a year. One i use to test if i get into electric playing. And from where i move on to an electric that's going to last.
Basically it comes down to: the best of the worst

unless you find a kickass deal on something which is normally meant to cost a fair bit more than a pacifica 112v, it's hard to go wrong with a pacifica 112v when you're starting out.
I'm an idiot and I accidentally clicked the "Remove all subscriptions" button. If it seems like I'm ignoring you, I'm not, I'm just no longer subscribed to the thread. If you quote me or do the @user thing at me, hopefully it'll notify me through my notifications and I'll get back to you.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Thanks for all the replies.

I'm heading to the shop next saterday. And i'll try a couple of things next to the pacifica.
whichever feels best in my hand will win the ticket home.
