Yamaha's most historical and iconic guitar, SG series was reborn in 2010 to satisfy today's musicians demands, handcrafted by the highly skilled Japanese master luthiers.
Originally designed in collaboration with Yamaha Guitar Development (YGD), our Los Angeles custom shop, Pacifica guitars have offered professional performance and expressive versatility since 1990.
Design of the RGXA2 centered on developing a lightweight instrument that would bring the guitar and player closer together. The focus was on providing the player with greater freedom, much like an air guitar, breaking down the boundaries between what is in the player's head and what comes out of the amp.
RGX series offers style and specification for aggressive players. The thinner neck is perfect for an intense guitar workout and specially selected humbuckers deliver clear, powerful, modern tone.
Yamaha's hollow bodied guitars combine traditional construction with innovative electronics and a focus on quality to create instruments that offer stunning looks, amazingly versatile sound and a playing experience ready for the stage.
Mike Stern's signature has been refreshed with Yamaha's exclusive wood treatment and finish. IRA (Initial Response Acceleration) technology shakes off the stress often found in new guitars and make them extremely vibrant and responsive. One-piece Maple neck is oil-finished for better comfort. PAC1611MS comes with a certificate personally signed by Mike to prove this guitar is perfectly crafted in his specification.
