LS26 ARE II Handcrafted Guitar

Overview

Detailed and articulate – the perfect description for the LS26. The finest construction, handmade in Japan, and hand-selected tonewoods work in perfect harmony with exclusive L-Series construction features to create an incredible small bodied acoustic, perfect for fingerstyle, recording and any application where the extra dynamics of the smaller body can shine through. 

The smaller body of the LS26 emphasises the midrange and softens the low-end response, making for an incredibly articulate, clear sound. Fingerstyle and more intricate playing styles are particularly well served by the LS’s sweet, subtle tone but it’s upfront tone and lower overall volume can add a new dimension to chord work for recording or applications where maximum volume isn’t a prerequisite. Standard L-Series wood choice of solid Engelmann spruce and solid Indian rosewood brings the best out of the LS tone with strong, powerful response across the frequency range.
The flagship L-Series boasts a number of unique player-focused construction features including a 5-ply vintage ‘V’ profile laminated neck for incredible strength, outstanding comfort and fabulous tone, the L-Series enlarged neck block for greater sustain and stability, Square Frame Side Bracing to more effectively transmit the vibrations of the guitar’s top to the rest of the body for enhanced low-frequency response and Yamaha’s exclusive ARE wood treatment to pre-age the tone of the guitar – creating a brand new guitar that sounds like it’s been played for 15 years.
