Description: 

The Yamaha Pacifica 311MS is part of the Yamaha Pacifica series and resembles the more expensive Yamaha Pacifica 1511MS Mike Stern signature model while the specifications are different though. The Yamaha Pacifica 311MS features an telecaster-shape alder body with an ash alminated top, a black laminated pickguard and a tele-style hard tail bridge. Other features are:

  • Yamaha diecast chrome tuners
  • One humbucker and one single coil hence the 311 designation in the model number
  • Maple fretboard

There is also the Yamaha Pacifica 311S which has a rosewood fretboard instead of the maple one.
