Together with modified bracing design, the sound has become more powerful and loud still maintaining excellent balance. To fit to contemporary player's needs, L6 is equipped with Zero-Impact Pickup to be ready for performance or recording at anytime without sacrificing its traditional look or full acoustic resonance.
The new Yamaha L-Series offers the perfect combination of traditional and modern: a warm, balanced tone that fits perfectly into a solo performance or mix; timeless good looks inspired by Yamaha’s 50 years of guitar crafting; instant played-in comfort; stage-ready performance as standard with Yamaha’s new Zero Impact pickup system.
The small-bodied LS has a long history with Yamaha. Featuring excellent total balance, it delivers a big, confident sound for it's size, yet also ideal for delicate passages, and highly recommended for fingerstyle guitarists.
A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) is an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha. Through precise controll 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.
A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L series’ characteristic bright tone while enhancing low-end tone.
