The Yamaha LL6ARE Electro Acoustic is a newly redesigned Electro Acoustic Guitar to celebrate Yamaha's 40th anniversary. It has been beautifully crafted from a solid Engelmann spruce top that features an Acoustic Resonant Enhancement process for a rich, warm tone, and solid rosewood back and sides that offer a well balanced tone. This modified model also features a comfortable 5-ply neck, which not only provides a powerful sound, but is also more stable and prone to warping.
The Yamaha LL6ARE is also equipped with a discrete zero-impact pickup, making it ready for performance or recording at anytime without sacrificing its traditional look or full acoustic resonance. What's more, the jumbo body shape further contributes to the enhanced resonance of this guitar, delivering a gorgeous open sound. All of these fantastic features make this guitar the ideal choice for any developing or established player on stage, at home or in the studio.

The Yamaha LL6ARE is a ground up redesign from Yamaha's guitar team. It features a solid Engelmann spruce top treated with A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement), an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha produces a tonal richness that can only be found in a vintage instrument that has been played for many years. This Yamaha-developed process involves the precise control of temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure, to manipulate the molecular properties of wood to provide a more acoustically ideal condition.
The Yamaha LL6ARE is, significantly, equipped with a redesigned non-scalloped bracing pattern - introducing a lower bracing height and shape that improves the vibration of the top board and tonal transference throughout the guitar. This innovative new feature creates a balanced low end, crisp top end, an increase in volume, and characteristics in keeping with current market demands. Improvements to the feel of the neck on the the L series makes them immediately comfortable to play.
Refining the neck profile means all the models now have a five-ply design and the L series has a lower string action and wider string spacing. In a first for the complete range of L Series, these models come with an unobtrusive passive under-saddle SRT Zero Impact Pickup for live applications that does not affect the unplugged sound or detract from the guitar's gorgeous finish. Yamaha added this almost invisible and simple-to-use feature that expands each guitar's capabilities.
Yamaha's L Series Acoustic Guitars have been around for 40 years, and are renowned for being a revered line of handcrafted acoustic guitars known for their tonal quality, fine tonewoods and impeccable workmanship. They now feature several new innovations that deliver classic quality, value and a genuine redesign befitting of a 40th anniversary model.
