The Yamaha LS16M is a perfect choice for players wanting an all-solid wood guitar at an incredible price! With hand-selected premium grade materials, this acoustic/electric guitar will go nicely in a recording studio or on the road.

This small-bodied LS guitar offers a balanced tone, but with a large, confident sound. With the combination of Solid Engelmann Spruce top, using Yamaha's newly developed A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) technology, and solid Mahogany back and sides, this guitar has a delicate sound highly recommended for finger-stylists.

A.R.E. is an original wood reforming technology designed by Yamaha. By controlling the temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure precisely, 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. In other terms, this technology creates a wood that sounds like it's been played for years.

The LS16M offers a new comfortable, but still traditional neck profile. A re-evaluation 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 a more stable grip and smooth playability over the full length of the neck.
