Getting a new guitar to replace my bros crappy used ashton started pack guitar and I was looking at the Yamaha Pacificas. Are these much of an improvement? If not please recommend another guitar in the same price range, I live in Australia so we get ripped off quite a bit.


Yer thats the site I was looking at (first one that came up on google)
er yeh the pacificas are decent guitars, although u may as well get a squire stratocaster. and ive sen ashton guitar starter packs, and i can probaBLY GUES WHCH ONE TI IS. AND ITS AWFULL.
So which is better a Squier or a Pacifica? I have no idea about low end guitars I've never really bought one.
Pacifica is much better that Squier standard Strat. It's really good guitar!
My Gear:

-Ibanez SZ 320 (Seymour Duncan JB/Jazz)
-Laney LC 30-II tube combo
-Yamaha C-40
-Suzuki steel string acoustic

+Lots of effect pedals and other crap..
depends which squier, honestly. The Classic Vibe/Vintage Modified Strats are probably as good as a mid-range Pacifica (probably a 412).
Current Gear:
LTD MH-400 with Gotoh GE1996T (EMG 85/60)
PRS SE Custom 24 (Suhr SSH+/SSV)
Ibanez RG3120 Prestige (Dimarzio Titans)
Squier Vintage Modified 70s Jazz V
Audient iD22 interface
Peavey Revalver 4, UAD Friedman BE100/DS40

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
