        The LS16 A.R.E. features all-solid Rosewood back and sides with a hand-selected premium Engelmann Spruce top. A newly designed bracing pattern and A.R.E. treatment create rich warmth and open resonance while maintaining excellent tone balance. In addition, a new comfortable neck profile and Yamaha's Zero impact pickup ensure you a stress-free performance on stage.

      • Small Body Type
      • Solid Engelmann Spruce Top Treated with A.R.E.
      • Solid Rosewood Back & Side
      • High Comfort Traditional Neck Profile
      • 5ply neck
      • SRT Zero Impact Pickup
      • In short the ARE treatment is a revelation and this is the first time Yamaha have managed to make it work for guitars outside of their expensive Japanese custom shop. Unlike other ageing processes where guitars look cosmetically like older instruments but still resonate like the new guitars guitars they are, Yamaha have approached things a little differently and found a way to rapidly age the wood itself before finishing the guitar. Thus producing guitars that respond like those nicely broken in vintage acoustics we all love. But without the massive price tags and without the need to remove any of that new guitar, glossy sheen.

        A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement)

        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.

        New Designed Bracing Pattern

        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 raditional players. The new design offers stable grip and smooth playability over the full length of the neck.

        5-Ply Necks

        New 5-ply neck designs are constructed of rosewood and mahogany plies. The design integrates the neck, head, and body into a single unit creating a powerful, rich sound. This approach also creates a strong, stable neck that resists twisting and warping.

        LS Body

        The small-bodied LS has a long history with Yamaha. Featuring excellent tonal balance it delivers a big, confident sound for its size. Its delicate sound is ighly recommended for finger-style guitarists.
