Enjoy the handmade quality and the fantastic features of the new L-Series, including the add-on of a solid top and solid back, in a guitar whose price is hard to beat.
Choice materials and Yamaha’s unique ability to blend traditional skills with advanced manufacturing techniques deliver instruments of exceptional quality at a price that’s hard to beat.
New Bracing Designs
All L-series guitars benefit from a new non-scalloped bracing design that delivers tone that is thick and well focused. The #36 and #26 model instruments add a square bracing design which utilizes side braces to connect the brace closest to the sound hole on the top, to its opposite brace on the back. This arrangement transmits string resonance to the back much quicker, causing the entire instrument to come alive with bass response, which the player feels as well.
Whether you prefer a full-sized LL dreadnought, small-sized LS body, or auditorium-sized LJ, the choice is yours. Each of these body styles is represented in each class letting you choose the instrument that meets your requirements for sound, style, and affordability.
Venetian cutaways offer access to the upper frets while adding beauty to these fine instruments.
The vintage style brass tuners found on all #26 model guitars present these instruments with a classic look.
The bridges on all new L-Series guitars offer more overall mass than their predecessors to deliver greater tone from these instruments. Their designs feature smooth lines and edges to keep the playing surface unencumbered.
Five-Piece Neck Designs
The five-piece necks on the #36 and #26 models are carved from a single laminated block that features two layers of padauk - an extremely hard wood used for marimba tone bars - sandwiched between three layers of mahogany. This design creates a neck that is exceptionally strong and stable-great for those players who prefer low string height. The #16 and #6 model instruments utilize similar 3-ply design of rosewood between two layers of mahogany.

Yamaha acoustics have been best sellers around the world for over 35 years, ever since the introduction in the mid-60s of the FG dreadnoughts which were both affordable and high quality, quickly earning a reputation for sound excellence.
The FGs, recently upgraded, continue to be an important part of Yamaha’s catalogue, which today offers much else besides, including a number of fine-sounding electro-acoustics. Whether it’s the full-size DW dreadnoughts, the traditionally-styled, folk-bodied FPXs, a selection of budget F-series and School instruments or the CJ/CJX Country Jumbos, there’s something for all tastes and musical styles. And quality and value for money are never less than superb.
