Yamaha Pacifica Mike Stern Signature PAC-1511MS - 1998
First year of issue! A high quality, superbly-playing, Japanese-made take on the Telecaster best known as Mike Stern’s choice of axe. Mike Stern is a revolutionary and dedicated jazz/fusion player who spearheaded the genre with his cerebral melodies and complex but tasteful harmonies. It would be fitting to say this guitar fits those sensibilities very well, being an interesting but subtle variation on a Tele. This particular example is sporting a single-coil size Duncan Hot Rails humbucker in the bridge which absolutely thumps and rocks, and a sparkly clean but smooth Seymour Duncan humbucker in the neck! Slim neck, vintage style tuners and it’s signed by Mike Stern himself! (with an actual texta!) Weight is 8.68 lbs. No case.
