NEW STATUS FOR YAMAHA PACIFICA AFTER FACELIFT FROM THE QUO
Yamaha’s Pacifica Guitars are the latest iconic design to receive a facelift from legendary Status Quo co-frontman Rick Parfitt. Parfitt, who is something of a self-proclaimed ideas man, is the driving force behind the Facelift range of re-useable patterned vinyl guitar body overlays.
Initially introduced to fit Stratocaster® and Telecaster® type body shapes, Rick Parfitt came up with the idea after being intrigued by the concept of how to instantly change the appearance of any guitar. Best of all – it can be used and re-used!
Coated in 'low tack' adhesive, The Facelift is non-slip when applied; it will rock, but never roll. It can be applied in seconds to instantly transform the look of any guitar, whether a brand new model or a tried and tested older instrument. It's economical yet immediately effective.
Rick Parfitt is not the only rock icon to recognize the significance of the Yamaha Pacifica as a classic guitar. Earlier this year legendary Rolling Stone guitarist Ronnie Wood selected a Yamaha Pacifica for his first ever painting on the body of a guitar, turning a Yamaha Pacifica 112 guitar that sells for less than £200 into a cultural icon worth in excess of £15,000.
Pacifica Facelifts are available now for 012, 112J and 112V models priced at £19.99 rrp.
