My Guitars

These are the guitars I currently own. I like to buy guitars at the right price play them for a while and sell them on. I will always listen to any sensible offers on my guitars and I am always interested in any unusual or interesting Fenders, Yamahas and Burns guitars

MSG Guitars

Yamaha Pacifica 611


This guitar was made in yamaha's Indonesian factory in 2011 it is ridiculously good quality for the price some specs from a review.
The Yamaha Pacifica 611 has a solid Alder body, a feature often found only on more expensive guitars, and which forms the backbone of Yamaha's quality sound. This is complimented with a selection of quality hardware. First up is Yamaha's original bridge plate/Graph Tech string saver saddle. Teflon-impregnated saddles dramatically reduce string breakage while minimizing the dominant 2KHz tonal spike of metal saddles. Combining these saddles with Yamaha's original steel bridgeplate give the perfect combination of quick response and strong sustain. Locking Grover machine heads lock strings automatically for stable tuning and mega fast string changes. The Yamaha Pacifica 611 features a coil tap function which allows simple switching from humbucker to single coil tones from the Seymour Duncan Custom 5 bridge pickup. The Graph Tech nut and string tree TUSQ XL is precision engineered to couple the strings vibrations to the neck and bring out hidden harmonics and richness in every note. 500 times more slippery than graphite, the Teflon-impregnated material eliminates string-binging and ensures tuning stability, even with massive string bends.

Yamaha Superaxe 1200SA


If there is a better 335 than the Yamaha Superaxe made I have yet to find it and I include the twice the price Gibsons.

YSG Guitars

Yamaha SG 30


This SG 30 was made in Japan in 1974

Yamaha SL 400


Again made in Japan this time around 1979 it's unusual in that it's a Les Paul with a bolt on neck so took some time to set up to get the tuning stable but now that it is set up it's among the easiest to play of my guitars.
Details of the range here.

Studio Lords and Lord Players

Yamaha Pacifica 311 MS


This is the made in Taiwan version of the Mike Stern signature model beautiful looks and feel and a testament to the quality of Yamaha's Taiwan operation.
