The Yamaha LJ16ARE Acoustic Guitar is a redesigned Electro Acoustic Guitar to celebrate Yamaha's 40th anniversary. It has been beautifully crafted from a solid engelmann spruce top that features Yamaha's Acoustic Resonant Enhancement process for an improved sound, along with solid rosewood back and sides that offer a well-balanced tone.
This modified model also features a stunning ebony fingerboard which is mounted on a comfortable 5-ply neck. This unique neck design not only provides a rich and powerful sound, it also has enhanced strength for improved tuning stability. The Yamaha LJ16ARE is also equipped with a discreet zero-impact pickup, making it ready for performance or recording at anytime without sacrificing the traditional look or full acoustic resonance.
The jumbo body style provides comfort and also delivers a wide dynamic range.


40 Years of Premium Guitars
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 tone woods and impeccable workmanship. They now feature several new innovations that deliver classic quality, value and a genuine redesign befitting for a 40th anniversary model.

Acoustic Resonance Enhancement
The Yamaha LJ16ARE is a ground up redesign from Yamaha's guitar team. Featuring a solid Engelmann spruce top now 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.

Modified Bracing Pattern
Significantly, the LJ16ARE has 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, a crisp top end, an increase in volume, and characteristics in keeping with current market demands.

New Improved Neck Profile
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. The LJ16ARE also features an Ebony fingerboard, which adds to the overall quality of this stunning instrument

Jumbo Body Shape
The benefit of a jumbo body shape delivers a powerful projection, as there is more space for the sound to reverberate around the body. It offers quality and balance with a bassy low-end. It is particularly ideal for seated guitarists, as it provides a comfortable fit.

Compared to the original range of L Series, these upgraded 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 finishes. Yamaha added this almost invisible and simple-to-use feature that expands each guitar's capabilities.
