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.
A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L series’ characteristic bright tone while enhancing low-end tone.
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.
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 ighly recommended for finger-style guitarists.
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.
The L Series’ flagship models, the LL56 Custom, LS56 Custom, and LJ56 Custom, are crafted using only the finest hand select materials, the most advanced designs, the highest level of skills and technologies. Each model is adorned with gold tuning pegs and abalone binding making every instrument a beautiful piece of art.
