The LJ body shape gives the LJX26C a wide, open sound with slightly softened mid-range, ideally suited to modern chord and fingerstyle playing and the perfect backing for singer/songwriters. Hand-selected solid Engelmann spruce and Indian rosewood give strong, solid projection, excellent balance and sumptuous looks.
The flagship L-Series boasts a number of unique player-focused construction features including a 5-ply vintage ‘V’ profile laminated neck for incredible strength, outstanding comfort and fabulous tone, the L-Series enlarged neck block for greater sustain and stability, Square Frame Side Bracing to more effectively transmit the vibrations of the guitar’s top to the rest of the body for enhanced low-frequency response and Yamaha’s exclusive ARE wood treatment to pre-age the tone of the guitar – creating a brand new guitar that sounds like it’s been played for 15 years.
Powered by Yamaha’s exclusive ART pickup system, every nuance of the performance is captured with incredible dynamic response and natural tone. Transparent control is on hand thanks to the 3-way pickup configuration with separate volume controls for each of the bass, full-range and treble pickups and the System 60 preamp features no EQ for the most natural sound imaginable.
