The latest electro acoustic guitar from Yamaha features their Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) technology. Developed by Yamaha through extensive research, the tonewoods have been treated with incredible precision to adjust their unique characteristics with regard temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure. This means that each model of the Yamaha LL16 A.R.E. electro acoustic guitar has a played-in feel and sound, giving you rich tones as soon as it arrives.
The back and sides are built using select rosewood, a tonewood that is filled with complexity and an emphasis on mid to low-end power. The rosewood is paired with a solid Engelmann spruce top, a deeply resonant wood that offers a sparkling articulation that shapes the tonal output perfectly. The spruce top has been reinforced using a new modified non-scalloped bracing design, which retains the L series' unique character with vigour.
The body has been crafted to Yamaha's LL body shape, a traditional body shape that is renowned for its rich and complex tones, robust volume that has a wide dynamic range and an excellent balance of tones across the frequency spectrum. The LL shape has been tried and tested by many artists around the world, so you can be sure that this is a trustworthy design.
The LL16BS has received a stunning brown sunburst finish to give it a distinctively vintage aesthetic. The tonewoods have been gently treated to a protective coating of urethane, which allows the rosewood and spruce to resonate fully whilst being protected from changes in temperature and humidity, making them highly resilient when you're travelling around the globe.
The LL16 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 sumptuous ebony 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 LL16. 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.
Die-cast gold tuners retain tuning integrity with absolute precision, whilst enhancing the luxuriously decadent finish of the tonewoods exquisitely. The lower bout of the body is protected by a tortoise coloured pickguard.
The LL16 A.R.E. 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 LL16 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.
