The vintage-inspired LS26, LJ26 and LL26 handcrafted models invoke memories of the tradition of Yamaha acoustic guitars; open-gear tuners and classic aesthetics draw on our rich heritage. As with their looks, the tone of the L26 guitars is open and mature whilst offering our hallmark comfort and playability.
A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement)
A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) is an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha.
Through precise controll 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 reevaluation of string spacing, string height, fingerboard binding, and neck taper led to a new neck shape that better fits today’s raditional players. The new design offers 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.
Lacquer finish is carefully applied in multiple layers using a skilled technique. This approach results in a finish that does not inhibit the wood’s ability to vibrate delivering outstanding response and rich tone. Specially formulated to bring the best in tone, this lacquer (nitrocellulose lacquer) is used on the L56 and L36 lines.
