Greetings from the Tweed Hut Music Store, Vacaville, CA. USA! Established 2002, We do a great job and will not let you down!

The Yamaha LS16 ARE is an all-solid wood handcrafted acoustic guitar featuring a solid Englemann Spruce top in combination with solid rosewood back and sides. It's ideal for solo or group performances and is stage-ready with its built-in Yamaha Zero Impact pickup system.

Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.)
A.R.E. is an original wood reforming technology developed by Yamaha where the molecular properties of wood are manipulated into a more acoustically ideal condition. The idea is that even though you're buying a new guitar, A.R.E. is going to make this instrument sound like a guitar that's been played for years. The Acoustic Resonance Enhancement process works by precise control of temperature, humidity, and atmospheric pressure.

SRT Zero Impact Pickup
The Yamaha SRT Zero Impact Pickup system in the LS16 utilizes individual piezoelectric elements for each string that faithfully reproduce the dynamic sound of the guitar and give the instrument an outstanding presence on stage or in the studio. This is a newly developed passive pickup designed to minimize the pickup’s impact on the tone and traditional appearance of the instrument.

New 5-Ply Neck, And Neck Profile
The LS16 A.R.E. features a new 5-ply neck of rosewood and mahogany that helps to create a richer sound because of the integration of the neck, head, and body into a single unit. New string spacing, string height, fingerboard binding, and neck taper combine to create a new neck shape that better fits today's traditional players. It produces a stable feel and smooth playability over the entire neck.

Traditional Yamaha LS Body Style
Yamaha guitars are known for their quality construction, excellent tone, and balanced volume. Yamaha LS Series guitars feature a non-scalloped bracing pattern that produces a balanced sound while enhancing low-end response.
