[Musikmesse] The Yamaha L Series turns 40
Yamaha celebrates at Musikmesse 2014 the 40th anniversary of its L series of acoustic guitars with no less than 22 new models.
The L Series is entirely renewed in 2014 with 22 new acoustic and electric-acoustic Dreadnought, Jumbo and Concert guitars. The electric-acoustic models feature a Zero Impact passive piezo placed underneath the bridge.
All the guitars feature a new bracing pattern and received a special ARE accelerated aging system so that their tone is already “mature” right out of the factory.
We won’t detail all the models here, but note that you will find guitars with Engelmann spruce tops, rosewood or mahogany backs, sides and necks, and ebony for some fingerboards (L16 for instance).
The L16 range, along with the 6-string model, also offers a 12-string model (LL16-12ARE) and a left-handed guitar (LL16-LARE).
All the guitars ship with a gigbag.
