Part of Yamaha's L Series, the LL16R-12 is perfect for a big, bold acoustic sound, and perfectly suited to the wide tonal range of a 12-string. The LL16-12's use of solid Englemann spruce and solid rosewood makes for excellent projection and a superbly balanced, powerful sound.
A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement)
A.R.E. is an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha. Through precise control of temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure, the molecular properties of the wood can be manipulated into a more acoustically ideal condition, similar to the molecular characteristics of woods in instruments that have been played for years.
New Designed Bracing Pattern
A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L series' characteristic bright tone while enhancing low-end tone.
High Comfortable Traditional Neck Profile
A reevaluation of string spacing, string height, fingerboard binding, and neck taper led to a new neck shape that better fits today's traditional players. The new design offers stable grip and smooth playability over the full length of the neck.
The 5-ply neck of mahogany and rosewood designed with a volute at the headstock plus a double action adjustable rod creates a neck with excellent strength and stability.
SRT Zero Impact Pickups
The SRT Zero Impact Pickup system is a newly developed passive type pickup configuration designed to minimize the pickup's impact on the tone and traditional appearance of the instrument. The system utilizes individual piezoelectric elements for each string to faithfully reproduce the dynamic sound of the L Series and give the instrument outstanding presence when playing in a band.
This traditional Yamaha body style is known for its rich volume, a wide dynamic range, and excellent tonal balance. Beautiful, transparent tone is the result of a design that has been refined by artists around the globe.
Beautiful Abalone Binding
Based on the LL16, the new LL16R-12 features intricate abalone inlay work around the body and sound hole. The inlays look particularly nice on stage where they beautifully reflect the stage lights.

Comments about Yamaha LL16R-12 L Series 12-String Solid Rosewood/Spruce Dreadnought Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
The fit and finish makes this a multiple pleasure. It's both art and quality all the way around. Took 4 months to get it. After I got it home I checked everything. Nothing had to be done to it! All adjustments were perfect including action which is almost always too high out of the box. It is effortless to play and the sound is extraordinary. It's better than some Fender, Martin & Taylor 12 strings I've played. I love the SRT passive pickup system on a decent acoustic amp. Sounds identical to playing live, just louder. All the tonal harmonics of the box, neck and strings comes through. It's a very tight, solidly made guitar and you can hear it. I'm feeling very lucky to have one of these and all my jamming buddies always want to play it. :)
