Original Jumbo Type Body
This traditional Yamaha body style is known for its rich volume, a wide dynamic range, and excellent tonal balance. Beautiful, transparent tone is the result of a design that has been refined by artists around the globe.
Solid Engelmann Spruce Top Treated with A.R.E.
Acoustic Resonance Enhancement is an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha. Through precise control 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.
Solid Indian Rosewood Back & Side
New Designed Bracing Pattern
A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L series’ characteristic bright tone while enhancing low-end tone.
High Comfort 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 traditional players. The new design offers stable grip and smooth playability over the full length of the neck.
5ply neck with Volute
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.
Luxury Abalone Inlay
Nitrocellulose Lacquer finish
Lacquer finish is carefully applied in multiple layers using a skilled technique. This approach results in a finish that does not inhibit the wood’s ability to vibrate delivering outstanding response and rich tone.
