The new Yamaha L-Series offers the perfect combination of traditional and modern: a warm, balanced tone that fits perfectly into a solo performance or mix; timeless good looks inspired by Yamaha’s 50 years of guitar crafting; instant played-in comfort; stage-ready performance as standard with Yamaha’s new Zero Impact pickup system.


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.


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.


    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.*#26,36,56 have a volute at the head stock.


      The lineup now includes models with back and sides of mahogany (LL16M/6M, LS16M/6M) letting you choose according to your playing style and tonal needs. Rosewood models offer well-balanced tone from low to high, while mahogany provides rich low-end with quick response.


        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.*L56,36,26 don't have this Pickup.
