The tinted, gloss-finished neck gives a unique and irresistibly vintage look and feel
Precision, pro-spec Grover locking machineheads lock strings automatically for stable tuning and ultra-fast string changes
The standard-equipment coil tap function allows simple switching from humbucker to single-coil tones from the Seymour Duncan Custom 5 bridge pickup
Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut and string tree
TUSQ XL is precision engineered to couple the strings vibrations to the neck and bring out hidden harmonics and richness in every note. 500 times more slippery than graphite, the Tefl on-impregnated material eliminates string-binging and ensures tuning stability, even with massive string bends.
Colour-matched to the body, the flamed maple headstock is inspired by the legendary Pacifica USA models
Yamaha Original Bridge Plate/Graph Tech String-Saver Saddle
Tefl on-impregnated saddles dramatically reduce string breakage while minimizing the dominant 2KHz tonal spike of metal saddles. Combining these saddles with Yamaha's original steel bridgeplate give the perfect combination of quick response and strong sustain.
Seymour Duncan Custom 5
Like a higher-output version of the classic '59 humbucker, the Custom 5 was developed in response to players customizing their SH-5 Custom or SH-11 Custom pickups with Alnico 5 magnets for a more vintage, less distorted tone but retaining a deeper bottom end than the stock '59.
Seymour Duncan SP90-1
Wound with plain enamel wire on a 1950's Leesona winding machine, the SP90-1's tone is a faithful reproduction of the original soapbar pickups. Short, wide bobbins give a higher output and more powerful midrange than conventional single-coils for a fat neck pickup tone with clarity impossible to achieve with humbucking pickups.

Questions & Answers
Question: Is the Pacifica 611H (in Black) the same guitar as the 611HFM? Why 'H' and not 'HFM'?
The 611H and 611HFM are virtually the same guitar; for the 'FM' models, the top (front) of the guitar has a flamed maple layer above the alder body. This banded wood is added purely for aesthetics and is only visible with translucent finishes. Therefore with a solid black finish, we use an alder guitar body which doesn't have a flamed maple top.
The hardware, pickups and configuration of the guitar are otherwise identical (and we think both look great!).
