The Yamaha LJ16BC Billy Corgan Signature Electro Acoustic Guitar is based on the self-modded acoustic owned by The Smashing Pumpkins' frontman. Known for his fastidious approach to song writing, Corgan has applied that same focus towards his instruments, and the LJ16BC is an exceptional model. Whether you're an amateur or a professional, this beauty is a born performer down to the tiniest detail.
Medium jumbo body profile
The LJ16BC is shaped to a medium jumbo body profile, with solid rosewood back and sides generating a stirring mid-range energy. At Corgan's request, greater emphasis was placed on the upper-mid harmonic frequency range with a gently rounded low-mid range. The Yamaha LJ16BC Billy Corgan Signature Electro Acoustic Guitar features unique appointments that includes brass bridge pins, which Corgan noticed improved the listening experience for the audience.
The top is crafted using solid Engelmann spruce with Yamaha's proprietary Acoustic Resonance Technology (A.R.E.). The desire to own a played-in guitar with a rich history is common for guitarists, which is where Yamaha's A.R.E. tech comes into play. The tonewoods have been treated with incredible care to adjust their unique characteristics with regard temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure. This gives the LJ16BC a mature timbre giving you rich tones as soon as it arrives.
Supportive neck design
Joined to the body is a 5-ply mahogany and rosewood neck. The unique construction method marries the neck, head and body into a single-unit for optimised sustain. The sturdy nature of the neck allows it to resist twisting and warping over time. Married to the neck is a delightfully luxurious ebony fingerboard, which offers a silky touch under the fingertips for effortless performances.
3 Expressive pickup system
The SRT Zero Impact pickup system has been fitted to the LJ16BC. 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 LJ16BC Billy Corgan Signature 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 LJ16BC 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 on the stage, you'll always feel at home with this beauty in your hands. Each model is supplied with a hardshell case for safety in style.
