Add a premium Left-handed acoustic-electric to your collection with the Yamaha LL16L guitar. Continuing in the legacy of Yamaha's L Series, the LL16L sports a hand-selected, solid Engelmann spruce top and solid rosewood back and sides for a rich, warm sound. An ultra-stable 5-ply mahogany/rosewood neck and ebony fretboard are smooth and sleek. The slimmer neck shape and an enhanced fingerboard edge gives the LL16L a feel and playability you'll love. A passive SRT Zero Impact Pickup uses six separate elements to detect each string and give you authentic plugged-in tones. The Left-handed Yamaha LL16L gives amazing playability and killer tone in a premium acoustic-electric guitar.

Yamaha LL16L Left-handed Acoustic-electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Innovative construction to build a better guitar
  • Hand-selected Spruce top for great tone
  • A full-range passive pickup system
Innovative construction to build a better guitar

The great tone and smooth playability of the LL16L are due to Yamaha's never-ending search for perfection. The recently developed A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) process gives your guitar a broken-in and aged tone. By controlling the atmospheric pressure, temperature, and humidity, the molecular properties of the wood are manipulated to mirror those of a guitar that has been played for years. Each L Series guitar also sports a modified non-scalloped bracing that enhances the guitars low end. And the 5-ply mahogany/rosewood neck, after re-evaluation of string height and spacing, has a new design for improved playability. The Yamaha LL16L utilizes newly developed advances in guitar construction to bring you an amazingly playable and great-sounding instrument.

Hand-selected Spruce top for great tone

Sweetwater knows that the choice of top wood can have a strong effect the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the LL16L, Yamaha chose a premium, hand-selected solid Engelmann spruce top. Chosen as much for its look as its tone, solid spruce has a well-rounded, articulate sound with excellent projection. Its rosewood back and sides provide exceptional bass and powerful projection. And because it's a solid-wood top, the tone will age gracefully, with enhanced harmonics and greater tonal balance as the years go by.

A full-range passive pickup system

The passive SRT Zero Impact Pickup was designed by Yamaha to deliver a faithful reproduction of the LL16L's natural, dynamic sound. It was also designed to minimize the impact on the guitars looks and tone. The passive design doesn't use a bulky preamp that's routed into the body to hamper the instrument's look or resonance. Each string has its own piezoelectric element for a full-sounding and accurate sound. Because this is a passive pickup system, you'll need to use an external preamp when you want to plug in the Yamaha LL16L.

Yamaha LL16L

This is a well crafted instrument. It is beautiful and the solid woods are of very good quality. The tone is amazing for an instrument right out of the box. Playing it can cause a degree of Cognitive Dissonance because as you close your eyes and just play you believe that you are playing on old well-broken in guitar but when you open your eyes you see a brand new guitar. The neck has a great feel to it and the finish does not feel like a new instrument. I can't imagine another guitar in this price range that can come close to the value if this one.
