When purchasing an acoustic, many guitarists prefer their guitar to have a certain level of maturity in the tonewood. This maturity means the guitar has developed its own unique timbre and greater tonal complexity. Recognising this, Yamaha developed their Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) technology, which means that 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 LL16D A.R.E. electro acoustic guitar has a played-in feel and sound, giving you rich tones as soon as it arrives.
The body has been shaped to a powerful jumbo profile. The jumbo profile provides a powerful burst of energy. Strummers will appreciate the ease with which full-bodied sounds are formed and projected by the jumbo shape, making it excellent for both singer-songwriters, solo performers and players in ensembles.
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 natural finish of the LL16D 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 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 LL16D. 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 LL16D 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 LL16D 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.
