14 freight off handle
Channel D end rather round


The handle is really nice and easy. He dismissed as bad guitar guitars all that preceded it but me apart from the APX700.

All possible harmonics on the stick out without difficulty.
The sustain is very good and the sound of the guitar is rich in harmonics.

In short, this guitar is alive!


The sound has nothing to do with that guitar of the mid-range or the body is not massive ... fund all solid wood gives color to the sound, a wealth that is a delight to play.
In particular, the sounds are more detailed and help a good play.

It's the sound I was looking for


I use it for one week.

I like everything

This is my 4th guitar and I finally satisfaction. I realize now that I have a LJ16 that the average guitar lines (200 to 400 euros) are not a good guitar.

The value for money is exceptional in my case. In fact I had this guitar in B-Stock 300 euros because it has damaged the back (painted after a split mishandling).
I had plenty of time to try the guitar, check the noise potential, his place of understanding. Once the defect was not fatal ... I bought RAM balances. At that price not hesitate for a guitar of this quality.

This defect does not affect the sound and will be repaired quickly, that kind of break is not very serious, you just have stabilized to prevent it getting worse over time.

The normal price of this guitar is between 750 and 850 euros. If you can afford, please.

With experience, I remake that choice 100%

Channel 5 pices reinforced (mahogany ...)
High-gloss finish

Overall ASEZ any standard a. ..

FYI, I possde a Seagull S6 and a 90-Furch OM23Cr
I have the opportunity to play a Takamine AN30C often.

Well, the LJ16 is above the Seagull (and largely taka - even if I do not like Takamine, too cold) - we are not yet at the Furch (100% mass) and the Difference is quite clear.


Channel rather enjoyable, even if I know more "fine". that's all more of the same standard as that of the seagull. Channel is rather round.
Even if a jumbo, the body is very ergonomic becaufe ultimately not too big.

The sound is good IMMEDIATE, TRS balanced. even with strings uses, it has a nice gloss felt (as opposed to my Furch (table cedar, rosewood body) which is very bright, snapping limit).

EDIT APRS a weekend pass play on and compare with my Furch. I confirm that we are not at this dernbire, less prsence, less brightness, less body in the sound (with the remark tempra diffrence format, for OM Furch, J for yam) I changed the strings (martin of light). CHARACTERISTICS appearance felt ropes and uses rapparu fast enough, which suggests to me that this is a CHARACTERISTICS guitar. trs but is enjoyable, the sound is TRS balanced and especially arpge and agreements.


It is ideally suited to folk. In gnral, acoustics, I play the blues or songs, as well Franaise (Cabrel, Keren Ann, paul people ...) and international (Incubus, Beatles, Hendrix ...) c ' is very varied.


I got trs short time, and I did not notice it was a gift to surprise a friend ... and I t jealous, my time filling redcouvrir Furch!

The budget was 5 to 600 euros, so I tried SERIES 6, a Martin DX1, Epiphone Masterbilt, Guild GAD 25 and 40, Tanglewood. I take a prvoyais LL6 tinted and I fell on this occasion.

Even if there is a diffrence between tural SERIES 6 and 16, the Lotus of yamaha in my opinion are the best choice in this price range. The finish is superb. They are books with case softcase. Yamaha has made very strong. I wonder if I will not let me try ...

Résumé to: less than 750, it was a guiatre a table and massive back, Etrema well finished, the object itself is trs beautiful qyui sounds wonderful. In my opinion the best choise in this price range, especially as the three formats Dreadnought, and Jumbo Orchestra are available.
I'm curious to try SERIES 26 and 36 ....
