Description

Details

The Yamaha LS6 ARE electro acoustic guitar is a smaller-bodied relation of the larger LM and LL series' models. It has received the same dutiful care and attention as its larger siblings, but thanks to its diminutive size, it better suited to guitarists who have a shorter reach whilst playing.

The LS6 has received Yamaha's unique Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) treatment. Yamaha developed ARE technology in response to what many guitarists’ desire in acoustics - an aged/played-in character. During the course of its life, each acoustic develops a unique quality that comes through being played, which is why some of the most coveted acoustic guitars are often decades old. Acoustic Resonance Enhancement adjusts the tonewoods characteristics in subtle ways with regard to temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure, which develops the wood on a molecular level to create a more mature and accomplished timbre. As soon as it arrives, all you need to do is pick it up and play.

The body profile is closer to that of a concert style shape, giving the LS6 a delicate character. Fingerstyle players will appreciate the slender shape of this body, which rests perfectly to create the comfortable playing position every time. The timbre of the concert shape is articulated with a considerable level of power, understated yet crystal clear.

The back and sides are built using rosewood, a tonewood that is filled with complexity and an emphasis on mid to low-end power. The top is crafted from solid Engelmann spruce - as are the other models in the L series -, which is a highly resonant tonewood 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 prevent 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 LS6 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 LS6 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 LS6. 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 Yamaha LS6 electro acoustic guitar is a fantastic model for amateurs or professionals who demand reliability, 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. Whether you prefer to play in your room or onstage, you'll always feel at home with this beauty in your hands.
