LS16 ARE Acoustic Guitar with Yamaha's advanced ARE treatment and a zero-impact pick-up system.

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.

    Very pleased with this guitar. Yamaha really do build great guitars. This LS16M is all solid wood and sounds and feels great. Very comfortable guitar to play. And also excellent service from the seller. Would definitely recommend them.
