The all-solid LLX16 combines traditional design with top-quality preamp/pickup technology to make an acoustic-electric guitar the pros have been asking for.
The Yamaha LLX series combines the finest materials, impeccable craftsmanship, and exclusive features to give them a deserving place at the top of Yamaha's electro-acoustic guitar range. Matching the traditional dreadnought-style body with the latest ART pickup system gives LLX acoustic-electric guitars immense character and a big, striking sound”on or off stage. These Yamaha guitars sound like they've been played for years, straight out of the box.
The Yamaha LLX16 acoustic-electric guitar features a premium solid Engelmann spruce top, solid rosewood back and sides and a 3-ply mahogany/rosewood/mahogany neck that lends strength and a more balanced tone. It also features the System 60 ART preamp as used on Japanese L-Series models.
The Yamaha LLX16's System 60 preamp couples the 3-way A.R.T sensor system to an exclusive preamp, which offers ultra-simple controls (3 independent pickup volumes”bass, full-range, treble”and master volume) with high fidelity-grade components for the most transparent, powerful electro-acoustic system available. Using custom-designed, calibrated push-push pots, the System 60 controls are designed to offer stage-friendly ergonomics but be hidden away and not detract from the traditional looks of the L-Series guitar when not in use. The A.R.T system faithfully reproduces the stunning tone of the L-Series guitars with complete transparency”both in sound and playing experience.

I love this guitar. It has such a big round sound, but yet feels and sounds balanced. Imagine the brightness of a Taylor married to the bottom lows of a Gibson jumbo. Neither overpowering the other. The compliments keep coming every time I play this thing, and that's even through the PA, so there's a testament to the pickup system. It has a fast neck, and feels solid if you want to to do the big strum to more of a palm muting percussive style. I bought this Used from MF and well, they knocked off a nice sizable amount over a small crack and scrap. The crack was NOT in the wood, just the resin material that coats the finish. Needless to say, it was a good deal, and those blemishes are both in a place no one could see. The case is a very sturdy padded foam gig bag type. After a gig the other night, a toolbox fell on the case while in my car! Checked everything out, not a worry. The foam is very thick and has the protection equivalent of a hardcase. All in all, a great guitar. Even at full price, it places more expensive Gibsons, Taylors, etc to shame. And if by chance you can find one used - get it immediately. It's a lifetime keeper.
This guitar can hold it own with the best of 'em, which really surprised me! To me, my faves are the new Guilds and i've played and owned 'em all. This Yamaha, however, is a solid and slightly hefty dreadnought with deep resonance and sustain. Plus, great fretwork. I am really grateful i could add it to my collection. I've played thru D-tar, Fishman, LR Baggs, Taylor Expression, etc. The electronics in this Yamaha are space age amazing! Looks like a nano-cpu in there. A 2800 guitar for 1000. Awesome. Pro level player in every way and so sturdy it looks like it'll take a beating for years to come.
