Featuring solid rosewood back and sides and a hand-selected premium Engelmann spruce top, the Yamaha LL16 is everything we’ve come to expect from a Yamaha acoustic guitar. While they may not be the first name that pops into your head when you think “acoustic guitar” the truth is that Yamaha has been producing solid instruments for decades. They have also developed some interesting new technologies as well including the A.R.E. or Acoustic Resonance Enhancement which alters the molecular properties of the tone woods to match those of a guitar that has been played for years. Weird science perhaps, but we can’t argue with the results – the LL16 is one fine sounding guitar.
