Part of Yamaha's L Series, the LS6R 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 LS6R 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 LS6R L Series Rosewood/Spruce Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:
The sunburst model....It's a little lighter in color and shading than I expected, but it looks wonderful. I've owned several Yamahas at various times: an old Red Label FG 180, AND FG700S and and FG730S. I've enjoyed them all for differing reasons, but this beauty is light-years beyond my previous Yamaha guitars.
The tone is so, so clear.... and even strummed hard it doesn't get muddy....or boomy.
I prefer playing without a pick, and some guitars lack the resonance necessary to be heard when playing with other unplugged people...Not so with the LS6R!
As one player to another, a finger picked D major chord to A major run on this thing is so crystal clear it's like playing chimes... It made me want to weep with joy...Seriously.
