The Yamaha LL16M is a top-of-the-line acoustic guitar designed for serious musicians. With its all-solid wood construction, it features a solid Englemann Spruce top that provides a clear and warm tone, while the solid mahogany back and sides add depth and warmth to the sound.

This LL16M is handcrafted to ensure the highest quality and attention to detail, making it ideal for both solo and group performances. The built-in Yamaha Zero Impact pickup system allows you to amplify your sound with ease, making it the perfect choice for stage-ready performances.

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 this LL16M sound like a 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 L Series acoustic guitar 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 LL16M 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. This LL16M guitar features a non-scalloped bracing pattern that produces a balanced sound while enhancing low-end response.

The Yamaha LL16M features the perfect combination of traditional and modern construction, hand-selected, premium-grade tonewoods, and the instant played-in comfort of a handcrafted guitar.

Whether you're a professional musician or a hobbyist, the Yamaha LL16M acoustic guitar is the ideal instrument for your musical journey.  Add it to the cart and get yours on its way.

      I'd been thinking about buying a LL16M for a while. I finally decided to give one a try but these guitars are hard to find right now. Andy's had it in stock at a good price. They shipped it really fast, I had it in two days. I'm glad that I bought it, it's a really nice guitar for the price. Actually, it's a good guitar period!
