The FG180 was Yamaha’s first folk guitar, dating back 50 years to 1966.
This model has been developed based on the specs from that year, recreating a modern version by applying Yamaha’s latest technological expertise.
The best-selling and most recognisable models are the entry-level PAC012 and PAC112.
Initially intended by Lasner and Knapp as a test project, Yamaha Japan chose to produce the instruments.
Many variants of the Pacifica have been produced since the 1990s, including models styled like the Fender Stratocaster and Telecaster, twelve string models, carved-top and set-neck versions.
