So i was out today, looking at guitars at lunch...and to my surprise...HOLY ****! The not so good shop that i live by got a bunnnnnch of new gear, like, new everything, now i know its not the best gear, but compared to what he had before it sure is, there was Laney amps, an Epi LP Custom, and like two Epi LP Standards, a SG Custom, and other guitars on the wall. Now, i was looking around, a baboom, i found a nice second hand guitar, im still looking ot buy another guitar to strip the body and paint to my liking, and just have fun with.

Theres a catch, i know nothing about the guitar, this is where you come in, i need your help

Its got a blue body, no pickguard, H/S/H config, standard strat style trem, thin ass 22 fret bolt on neck, and its a Yamaha, thats all i know, but it seemed like a really really good guitar, i tried it unplugged, and it was like butter, i could reach the upper frets just as easily as on my Epi


So does anyone know what model it is?...the specs of it? hes asking $250 CAD second hand, but im going ot try to lower him to 225 or 200? But it seems liked a really good guitar


Thanks if you can give me any help


OH YEAH, it had a VERY VERY Ibanez RG style body, from behind i actuallly thought that it was an Ibanez, but its a Yamaha, i think its pretty old too, can anyone help?

i think it's a pacifica, which has an agathis body, i think...

try stuff out on some amps, as well
#3
I doubt its a pacifica though, the horns are really sharp, the neck is really thin, he had a pacifica there, and these looked nothing alike, the pacifica was like...a strat copy, the guitar i played was like an Ibanez copy, i dont know, it could be agathis, its got black hardware too, incase that matters. Also, on pacifica's it says the model, i dont remember this saying much else but Yamaha, but i could be mistaken

A little Yamaha shop near me has RGX121 (standard trem), 421 and 521 (LFRs). All are (I'm quite certain) made in Taiwan, but they don't have a bad feel. They only have a buzzbox practice amp in there, so I didn't try any plugged in.

People say they're good, but it's hearsay, so... Taiwan tends to put me off.

Yeah i checked the site right after i saw that, i doubt i will be buying it, just becus ei dont have 250 bucks right now, but it seems pretty sweet, i would play it plugged in obviously, but if it has a ****ty wood body and all that then i wont bother

These Yamahas aren't bad (they had a bunch of them at my old college) but I found the pickups weren't the greatest. I found they were fine for metal and 80s stuff but were useless for blues. The necks are nice on them though.
