Yamaha LS16MHC Handcrafted Solid Spruce/Mahogany Small-Body Acoustic Guitar - Natural
Has a solid Engelmann Spruce top and solid Rosewood back and sides. It also features a new non-scalloped bracing design that delivers a beautiful and well balanced tone. Choice materials and Yamaha's unique ability to blend traditional skills with advanced manufacturing make the Yamaha LS16 an exceptional guitar at a price that's hard to beat.
The LS16 features Yamaha's proprietary Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.). Models treated with A.R.E. give you an enhanced high range response with increased high range decay, giving you more clarity on the top end, while simultaniously enhanceing the low range sustain, increasing the power and giving added warmth to the tone.
The LS16 also offers their lightweight Zero Impact Passive Pickup, designed to minimize sound sacrifice, while maintaining traditional looks, as well as a 5 ply mahogany and rosewood neck with a thin neck taper, wide string spacing and ebony fingerboards with chamfered edges, giving you a fast playing and comfortable feel.
The Yamaha LS16 is smaller than a dreadnought guitar. It's size and shape are usually called a "folk" or "grand concert" size guitar.
