Yamaha LL16D ARE Original Jumbo Acoustic-Electric Guitar, Natural
A New Tradition. Yours.
The L Series offers the perfect combination of traditional and modern: warm, balanced tone that fits perfectly into a solo performance or mix; timeless good looks inspired 50 years of guitar crafting; instant played-in comfort; and stage-ready performance with the Yamaha Zero Impact pickup system.
Based on the LL16, the LL16D features intricate abalone inlay work around the body, head and sound hole, and reminiscent of the L36 Series, the LL16D offers both luxurious looks and excellent tone.
Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.)
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.
A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L Series' characteristic bright tone while enhancing low-end tone.
Traditional Neck Profile
A re-evaluation of string spacing, string height, fingerboard binding and the neck taper led to a distinct neck shape that better suits today's traditional players, offering 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.
*#26,36,56 have a volute at the head stock.
SRT Zero Impact Pickups
The SRT Zero Impact pickup system is a passive pickup configuration designed to minimize the pickup's impact on the tone and traditional appearance of the instrument. The system utilizes individual, piezo-electric 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.
