    I've been looking at the Pacifica 612 and 812's, they seem like really good guitars from reviews I've read, but I can never find them anywhere for sale.

    Anyone know what the street price for these usually are? Anyone know of any online dealers that sell them?

    Anyone have any that they have pictures of?

    Thanks in advance..!!:band

    They go pretty cheap on ebay all the time.

    I don't know the whole story, but when they started making them, Warmoth did the necks. I think they're a high quality parts guitar if you like the neck shape.

    In Europe they are easy to find, new and used. Never tried one but would like to; looks like a guitar with lots of quality parts so a lot of bang for your buck. I have had two other Yamaha models and the build quality seems to be spot on too most of the time.

    Wouldn't mind owning this one:

    I am also interested in both the 612v and 812v.They are almost imposible to find in stock in the US,though a couple of interenet dealers say that they can order both.The closest that I have come on street prices is that one Canadian Yamaha interent dealer [KAOS Music Centre] sells the 612v at $499.95 CAN and the 812v at $649.95 CAN.So far,I'm trying to decide between a clear orange 612v or a sunburst 812v.

    If you can ever find one...the one to get is a 921 (Yes..921 not 912). They were great, but you rarely see one around these days)..the only thing...it is considered a shred guitar...but I'm no shredder and I love them.
    Found one: http://tinyurl.com/3uonjy
