The Yamaha LL6M ARE electro acoustic guitar is a fantastic model for amateurs or professionals who demand reliabilty, consistency and resilience. The tonewood combination if of the highest quality, producing a rich and complex timbre that is perfectly represented by the onboard pickups when plugged into your amplifier of choice.
When it comes to guitars, many guitarists would argue that the longer an acoustic has had to age, the greater the tonal depth and richness of timbre that is evident when it is played. To allow their new models to develop that played-in feel earlier, Yamaha developed their Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) technology, which means that the tonewoods have been treated with incredible care to adjust their unique characteristics with regard temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure. This gives the LL6M a rich, mature character straight away.
The body profile is that of the jumbo on a smaller scale, giving the LL6M an uncompromising and powerful ability to project its rich tones with ease. Strummers will appreciate the ease with which full-bodied sounds are formed and projected by the jumbo shape, which also makes it excellent for both singer-songwriters, solo performers and players in ensembles. The smaller profile is very comfortable to play, minimising the onset of fatigue as you perform.
The back and sides are built using laminated mahogany, a tonewood that is filled with complexity and an emphasis on mid to low-end power. As the mahogany is laminated, the back and sides are given greater resilience against changes in temperature and humidity, making it an excellent touring partner.
The top is crafted from solid Engelmann spruce top, a highly resonant wood that projects the power generated in the body with the greatest of ease. Spruce offers a sparkling articulation in the higher frequency range, which cuts through the power of the mahogany sweetly to preventing the output from becoming muddied.
The spruce top has been reinforced using a new modified non-scalloped bracing design, which retains the L series' unique character with vigour. The natural finish of the LL16M is complimented in style by the detailed binding, rosette and tortoise coloured pickguard. The headstock is adorned with Yamaha's logo that stands proudly alongside the striking gold tuning machines.
The LL6M electro acoustic is fitted with Yamaha's new 5-ply neck design. Constructed from rosewood and mahogany, the composition integrates the neck, head and body into a single-unit to create a powerful sound with masses of sustain. The sturdy nature of the neck allows it to resist twisting and warping over time. Married to the neck is a delightful rosewood fingerboard, which provides a luxuriously touch as you glide along the 20-fret playing surface.
The new SRT Zero Impact pickup system has been fitted to the LL6M. The newly developed passive pickup delivers the unique timbre of this beautiful guitar with grace and clarity, utilising individual Piezo-electric elements for each string, which also give it an outstanding presence when playing live.
The LL6M ARE electro acoustic guitar is the perfect model for amateurs and professionals who require a guitar that has a rich and complex timbre straight out of the box. The new neck profile is very comfortable to play along, whilst the LL6M body shape is a joy to perform with thanks to its lightweight design. The SRT Zero Impact pickup reflects the character of the body shape/tonewood combination with fantastic accuracy.
Whether you prefer to play in your room or onstage, you'll always feel at home with this beauty in your hands.
