A Premium Acoustic-electric Guitar From Yamaha

When you need a guitar with exceptional tone and playability, check out the Yamaha LL6 acoustic-electric guitar. Part of Yamaha's legendary L Series, the LL6 uses a hand-selected, solid Engelmann spruce top and rosewood back and sides to give you a rich, warm sounding guitar with full-range response. The 5-ply mahogany/rosewood neck sports not only a smooth-playing rosewood fretboard, but also a new, slimmer neck shape and an enhanced fingerboard edge. A passive SRT Zero Impact Pickup uses six separate elements to detect each string and give you authentic plugged-in tones. The updated Yamaha LL6 delivers killer tone and playability in a premium acoustic-electric guitar.

Yamaha LL6 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 LL6 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 LL6 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 LL6, 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 LL6'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 LL6.

  • Innovative guitar design gives you an amazing-playing and sounding instrument
  • Hand-selected solid Engelmann spruce top with and rosewood back and sides provide rich tone and projection

The BEST acoustic I have ever owned

I'm not a professional but have been playing all for over forty years. I've owned a Gibson Hummingbird, various Epiphones and Guild's and one Ibanez. By far, the easiest playing and best sounding guitar I have ever played. With that said, it cost $599!! You really can't beat it. I bought mine here at Sweetwater and it was set extremely well. Nice job to Sweetwater and Yamaha!
