Yamaha LL26 ARE II Handcrafted Jumbo Acoustic Guitar (Ex-Demo)
Condition: Manufacturer A-Class Refurbished stock in absolutely mint condition. Includes original box, manuals, hard case. Includes full 1 year manufacturer warranty.
Combining the classic LL modified dreadnought body shape with Japanese handcrafted construction, premium materials and a few unique features, the LL26 is a true players instrument. The LL body shape gives the LL26 a big, bold sound with strong low and mid range response – perfect for a classic, big acoustic sound – while the all-solid construction of Englemann spruce and Indian rosewood perfectly combines great tone and sumptuous looks.
The flagship L-Series boasts a number of unique player-focused construction features including a 5-ply vintage ‘V’ profile laminated neck for incredible strength, outstanding comfort and fabulous tone, the L-Series enlarged neck block for greater sustain and stability, Square Frame Side Bracing to more effectively transmit the vibrations of the guitar’s top to the rest of the body for enhanced low-frequency response and Yamaha’s exclusive ARE wood treatment to pre-age the tone of the guitar – creating a brand new guitar that sounds like it’s been played for 15 years.
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.
A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L series’ characteristic bright tone while enhancing low-end tone.
A reevaluation of string spacing, string height, fingerboard binding, and neck taper led to a new neck shape that better fits today’s raditional players. The new design offers stable grip and smooth playability over the full length of the neck.
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.
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.
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. Specially formulated to bring the best in tone, this lacquer (nitrocellulose lacquer) is used on the L56 and L36 lines.
