A Smaller-bodied Acoustic-electric Guitar from Yamaha

Want a smaller-bodied acoustic-electric guitar with exceptional tone and playability? Check out the Yamaha LS6M. Part of Yamaha's legendary L Series, the LS6M uses a hand-selected solid Engelmann spruce top and mahogany 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 fingerboard, 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 LS6M delivers killer tone and playability in a premium acoustic-electric guitar.

Yamaha LS6M 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 LS6M 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 guitar's 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 LS6M 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 on the sound of an acoustic guitar. For the LS6M, 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 mahogany back and sides provide exceptional bass and focus. 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. Combine the premium tonewoods with the LS6M's smaller medium jumbo body size, and you've got a guitar that's wonderfully detailed and responsive - ideal for fingerpicking!

A full-range passive pickup system

The passive SRT Zero Impact pickup was designed by Yamaha to deliver a faithful reproduction of the LS6M's natural, dynamic sound. It was also designed to minimize the impact on the guitar's 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 piezo element for a full 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 LS6M.
