The Yamaha LL16-12 ARE handcrafted 12-string acoustic guitar is constructed using all-solid tonewoods and is one of the best values available today in a handcrafted twelve-string acoustic guitar.
When you buy an acoustic guitar, you buy it for the sound. We know it has to be well built and playable, but the most important criteria are sound. One important feature of the Yamaha LL16-12 handcrafted acoustic 12-string guitar that improves the sound is Acoustic Resonance Enhancement.
Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.)
A.R.E. is an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha where the molecular properties of wood are manipulated into a more acoustically ideal condition. The idea is that even though you're buying a new guitar, A.R.E. is going to make LL16-12 sound like a twelve-string guitar that's been played for years. The Acoustic Resonance Enhancement process works by precise control of temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure.
SRT Zero Impact Pickup
The Yamaha SRT Zero Impact Pickup system on this Yamaha 12-string utilizes individual piezoelectric elements for each string that faithfully reproduce the dynamic sound of the guitar and give the instrument an outstanding presence on stage or in the studio. This is a newly developed passive pickup designed to minimize the pickup’s impact on the tone and traditional appearance of the instrument.
New 5-Ply Neck, And Neck Profile
The LL16-12 A.R.E. features a new 5-ply neck of rosewood and mahogany that helps to create a richer sound because of the integration of the neck, head, and body into a single unit. New string spacing, string height, fingerboard binding, and neck taper combine to create a new neck shape that better fits today's traditional players. It produces a stable feel and smooth playability over the entire neck.
Traditional Yamaha LL Body Style
Yamaha guitars are known for their quality construction, excellent tone, and balanced volume. Yamaha LL Series guitars feature a non-scalloped bracing pattern that produces a balanced sound while enhancing low-end response.
