Yamaha's new TransAcoustic guitar recreates the experience of playing in a rich, live room without needing any external amplification or effects - just the guitar itself. This is accomplished using an actuator installed on the inner surface of the guitar back which vibrates in response to the vibrations of the strings. The vibrations of the actuator are then conveyed to the body of the guitar, and to the air in and around the guitar body, generating authentic reverb and chorus sounds from inside the body.

Three simple knobs let you adjust the degree of effect applied and the lineout volume level. Additionally, Yamaha kept the controls small to minimize the area of the holes in the body material, thereby reducing acoustic sound loss.

• Reverb Control (Room / Hall)
• Chorus Control
• TA Switch / Line Out Volume Control

Features:

• The body is an all-solid guitar based on the L-series.
• A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L series characteristic bright tone while enhancing the low end.
• Treating the tops with Yamaha's exclusive A.R.E. process gives the instrument a rich, vintage quality tone, making it sound as though you'd been playing it for years, from the very first moment you pick it up.
• The fact that this guitar has been designed with an insistence on sound quality is what allows it to produce effected sounds that feels pure and natural.
• Straighter neck taper and hand-rolled fingerboard edges result in an instrument that can be played for hours without any stress.
• The 5-ply neck design featured in all TransAcoustic Guitars is constructed of rosewood and mahogany plies with a double-action adjustable rod, creating a strong, stable neck that resists warping.
• Newly designed battery box is integrated into the end-pin jack. This requires fewer holes in the body, thus reducing acoustic sound loss. Connect the cable from the jack to a PA or amp to use as an acoustic electric guitar.

Amazing acoustic guitar and with the trans acoustic feature. making it very inspiring and a joy to play. Fit and finish (especially the top finish) not as good as my other guitar which cost me twice as much, but yes I am fussy. This guitar should come with rechargeable 1.5 volt AA batteries which I finally found on AliExpress. also a spare battery holder would be handy but Yamaha does not sell only the holder but the whole unit for about $85.00; so do not break or lose it. Bought this guitar 15 months ago from Long and McQuade in Tracadie N.B. truly great and helpful people to deal with.

I have been looking at it in various Guitar shops over the last couple of years. I bought an LL16 a few years ago, loved it, but sold it to thin out herd. This is the same guitar, but with transacoustic electrons. It is built, feels, sounds,plays, and is great! It is a must have acoustic. A definite keeper. It puts a smile on my face every time I play it.

A fraction brighter than desired with reverb, but the tone is punchy and voiced in a manner well suited to playing in bands, or places that absorb the shimmer, such as carpets, or large groups. One of those guitars you buy when your trying something else ( a Taylor in my case) and listen to someone playing it. I had to have it! And I?m still loving it.

I go way back with a passion for Yamaha handcrafted guitars. I had an LL 20 that I should never have given up! This LLTA is incredible. Without any of the electronic add-ins it is a totally beautiful acoustic instrument. All the electronic features are pure gravy. It blows away all of my other guitars when plugged in.

Fit and finish are superb. Acoustic sound without the ta engaged rivals my Martin dreadnaughts! This guitar is an absolute steal at this price... I would have paid twice the price for this level of workmanship, detail and sound. TA is amazing acoustically AND plugged in. Just a gorgeous guitar all round.
