First time out with my new Yamaha Pacifica 311H was at our band's rehearsal. Normally play a Tele, but wanted to hear how a couple of humbuckers would sound. Simply put - great! The guitar plays really well. It has a very good feeling neck and it was easy getting around the fingerboard. The pickups were great, and the simple 3-way switch was all I needed to get the sounds I wanted.
