A.R.E. (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement)
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.

New Designed Bracing Pattern
A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L series characteristic bright tone while enhancing low-end tone.

High Comfortable Traditional Neck Profile
A reevaluation of string spacing, string height, fingerboard binding, and neck taper led to a new neck shape that better fits todays raditional players. The new design offers stable grip and smooth playability over the full length of the neck.

5-Ply Necks
New 5-ply neck designs are constructed of rosewood and mahogany plies. The design integrates the neck, head, and body into a single unit creating a powerful, rich sound. This approach also creates a strong, stable neck that resists twisting and warping.

LL 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.

Yamaha has once again built a great instrument that is priced at far less than you would expect. The A.R.E. treatment of the top and the new bracing pattern makes the sound just roll out effortlessly and yes, it does sound like a guitar that has aged naturally. The pickup system also works well, although some non-intrusive instrument mounted controls would be nice. If you only haev one guitar, this should be it.

This is an amazing sounding guitar. I own a Taylor 816 as well and bought this for a kicker. WOW! The sound and volume of this guitar are nothing but awesome. It is easy to play, the neck feels good, the electronics work nicely also. It is solid and well made with good tuners it comes with Elixer strings which are also the best in my opinion. You will not be disappointed if you buy this.

Went into L&M to look for a replacement for my Martin D-16 and was initially eyeing another Martin, a few lower-end Gibsons and even financing myself an SJ-200. However, a salesman recommended I give an LL6 a try and it's been one of the better guitars I think I've owned. Tonally great, plays phenomenally and seems to be beautifully made. Great guitar for the money!
