Yamaha LS16M ARE - Natural Reviews

5.0 stars based on 2 customer reviews
  • from Minnesota December 14, 2015


    This is amazing guitar. I wasn't able to play one before buying, so I went off reviews off the internet, which were all positive - couldn't find a negative one out there! I challenge anyone to find an all solid wood guitar, with the detailing, electronics, playability, tone, and hard case for the price. The sound; crystalline, sweet, and commanding. It's got great projection when strumming and simply sweet in fingerstyle. The neck has a nice low profile which makes playing it easy for my small hands, and the action spot on out of the box! I also own a seagull and a martin, and there's a lot of comparing one guitar to another in reviews out there, but let's face it, they all have their own voices and purposes. While this one doesn't have the deep mellow tone of my martin, or the woodsy sound of my seagull, this has a voice all it's own, light and sparkling! The looks are top notch quality and beautiful as well. I NEVER would have bought this from any other online store, only sweetwater with their fast shipping, quality control, excellent customer service!

    Amazing guitar. Great tonality and playability. The ebony fretboard is very smooth and workable. My original thought was that because this is a small body guitar that it wouldn't be that loud.....I was wrong! This guitar projects almost as loud as my full body 1958 guild. The ARE technology is also a plus. This guitar sounds aged but still has a new crisp sound.
