Features

A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement)
A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) 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.
New Designed Bracing Pattern
A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L series’ characteristic bright tone while enhancing low-end tone.
High Comfortable Traditional Neck Profile
A re-evaluation of string spacing, string height, fingerboard binding, and neck taper led to a new neck shape that better fits today’s traditional players. The new design offers stable grip and smooth playability over the full length of the neck.
5-Ply Necks
New 5-ply neck designs are constructed of rosewood and mahogany plies. The design integrates the neck, head, and body into a single unit creating a powerful, rich sound. This approach also creates a strong, stable neck that resists twisting and warping.
LS Body
The small-bodied LS has a long history with Yamaha. Featuring excellent tonal balance it delivers a big, confident sound for its size. Its delicate sound is highly recommended for finger-style guitarists.

Questions & Answers

Answer

Thank you for getting in touch. Our 'Small Body' shape has narrower and more rounded upper and lower bouts and a narrower mid-section compared to a standard western ‘dreadnought’ guitar shape. As well as being more comfortable for some players, it also leads to a more focussed tone – ideal for finger-style playing where every note is clear and distinct.

Technically, this shape has slightly less volume and projection than a dreadnought shape – but in practice (especially when playing at home), the difference is extremely subtle.

The approximate dimensions of the LS16 ARE guitar are as follows:
