LL: Yamaha Original Jumbo Body

This traditional Yamaha body style is known for its rich volume, a wide dynamic range, and excellent tonal balance. It's beautiful transparent tone is the result of a design that has been refined by artists around the globe.

A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) is an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha. Through precise controll 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.

High Comfortable Traditional Neck Profile

A reevaluation of string spacing, string height, fingerboard binding, and neck taper led to a new neck shape that better fits today’s traditional players. The new design offers stable grip and smooth playability over the full length of the neck.

5-Ply Necks

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.

SRT Zero Impact Pickups

The SRT Zero Impact Pickup system is a newly developed passive type pickup configuration designed to minimize the pickup’s impact on the tone and traditional appearance of the instrument. The system utilizes individual piezoelectric elements for each string to faithfully reproduce the dynamic sound of the L Series and give the instrument outstanding presence when playing in a band.
