The LS6M offers many of Yamaha's exclusive features. The solid Engelmann Spruce top is treated with A.R.E., and together with a modified bracing design, the sound has become more powerful and loud while still maintaining excellent balance. To fit comtemporary player's needs, the LS6M is equipped wth a Zero-Impact Pickup, ready for performance or recording at any time without sacrificing its traditional look or full acoustic resonance.
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.

Comments about Yamaha LS6M L Series Mahogany/Spruce Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
All too often we talk about a guitar is a good value 'for what it is'. This guitar is a good value, period. Yes, the back and side are a laminate, but so what? The guitar has great value and excellent tone. I play out a good deal and this guitar plugs in just fine: I run it through a Baggs pre-amp and into a Fishman Loudbox. Excellent sound. It strums without breaking up and finger-picks easily. The intonation up the neck is spot on and no matter where I capo, the sound is clean and full. The set up was fine right out of the box. You could spend several hundred dollars more and not find a better guitar.
