    Other than the Mike Stern, they are no longer made.Pacifica 102,302,402 KILLER guitars - I own two, a 102 and 302. The 102 is very basic, entry level while the 302 is more ornate. All 3 models are alder, rosewood maple neck, 13.75 radius - same pups and hardware. The 402 has a quilted top. All 3 string though the body. The stock pups are pretty good, alnico A5 but individual taste being what it is - makes a great guitar to upgrade. Prices are a bit down at the moment and I've seen the 302 go for around $300. New pups - pots if you want - and you've got an axe that beats ANYTHING Fender has out there. No builder issues

    I played a black 112 for a good while, cost me 200 bucks. The front single coil was sweet sounding with harmonics all over the place. It had a good hendrix studio version red house tone in it. you still had to look through them 10 years ago to find a good one with level frets. I'd bet they're even better today. Now 359. for a maple top? i'd try one for a beater guitar. did i see duncan pickups?

    I had a Pacifica Strat many years ago, probably ~15, it was a very nice guitar, great comfortable neck, no issues, I enjoyed it for what it was and had no complaints with it.
