    I have played a few, and I like them!
    I sold Yamaha gear at the music store(s) I worked at in Canada.
    Oh yeah, Mr. Stern can play, BTW!

    I have the PAC311 MS lower line budget version, but it is still a very nice guitar.

    I had twin Pac311MS guitars a few years back. Orange and natural. Very nice guitars as were many other Yamahas I owned over the years. And for the record, the MS does not stand for Mike Stern, it stands for maple as in the fretboard BUT the 311MS was indeed the lower priced Mike Stern Model. We had many internet fights over this issue going back a bunch of years. I used to have a webpage from Yamaha Germany that proved it, but I have since lost it. I used to whip that page out and win every argument.

    I really want one of those! They occasionally appear on ebay and go for considerably more than when they were new. I can't afford the 1511 and it would be great if Yamaha reissued them; I'm sure they would sell-maybe not as well as the S-style Pacifica but I'd have one in a heartbeat!

    If the M stands for maple, what is the S for?

    Just a guess, but since my other Yamaha Tele is a PAC 102S, the S might stand for Single cutaway. [​IMG]
