Yamaha pays tribute to Stern's legacy with the Pacifica 1611MS, a signature model designed to meet the exacting standards of this jazz guitar virtuoso. Let's explore the key specifications and features that define the Yamaha Pacifica 1611MS Mike Stern Signature Model:

Body Construction

Crafted with an ash body, the Pacifica 1611MS embodies the classic tonewood choice for achieving a balanced and resonant sound. The single-cutaway design not only provides easy access to upper frets but also contributes to the guitar's timeless aesthetic.
