With its solid Engelmann Spruce top and solid Rosewood back and sides, the LS16 exudes a timeless elegance that sets it apart from the rest.

What truly sets the Yamaha LS16 A.R.E. apart is its new non-scalloped bracing design, meticulously engineered to deliver a balanced and captivating tone.

Thanks to Yamaha's expertise in selecting premium materials and their unwavering commitment to quality, the LS16 stands as an exceptional guitar, providing unparalleled value for your investment.

Enhancing its already impressive features, the LS16 is treated with Yamaha's proprietary Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) technology.

To safeguard this extraordinary instrument, the Yamaha LS16 comes complete with a protective case, allowing you to take it with you wherever your musical adventures lead.

SRT Zero Impact Pickups
The SRT Zero Impact Pickup system is a newly developed passive type pickup configuration designed to minimize the pickup's impact on the tone and traditional appearance of the instrument.
