Overview

The LS16R offers the you all the premium tone, feel, and appearance you can experience. Handcrafted with all solid woods, the LS16 helps make this handcrafted fingerstyle guitar one of the most fun you will ever experience.

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.

5-Ply 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.

Rosewood Back and Sides
This rosewood model offers a well-balanced tone from low to high, while mahogany provides rich low-end with quick response.

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 LS16R L Series Solid Rosewood/Spruce Concert Acoustic-Electric Guitar:

      I bought this guitar about a year and half ago...(don't know why I haven't rated it yet). I LOVE this little sweet thing. I've used it a gigs several times. It is comfortable, reliable, quality build and look of the classic little concert body that everyone loves. Rosewood gives it a nice bright sound, sold spruce top treated with the Yamaha A.R.E. sounds beautiful. 5 ply neck is strength and cool look, along with the all around binding the classic Yamaha pick guard. I can't rate it down for this but they need to put a strap button on the neck for standing players (I won't use the tether at the nut gets in my way). So I added one (carefully). I could kick myself but I kept playing and playing, sweating on the upper bout and marred the finish...totally my fault, but it's still a beauty. The passive under saddle pickup is beyond question as to its sound....and not having to jack with a battery (ever) is nice. No on board E.Q. but that's what my mixer is for...Morely gator volume pedal, or a boost pedal to contol volume on the fly, keeps me in the mix with the band or in a duet....so no worries there either. I can't describe how nice this instrument feels, looks and plays. I waited for a discount coupon and struck... So I beat the floor price. ...quality hard shell case included... I HIGHLY recommend this instrument. Its everything I can do to keep from buying the big mahogany body LL16M
