Description: 

The Yamaha Pacifica 311S 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 311S 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

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