Yamaha's Greatest Hit
The LL56 Custom is the flagship guitar of the L Series by Yamaha. Completely handbuilt by Yamaha's master luthier and only using the very best, hand selected materials. This guitar represents everything Yamaha knows about building world class instruments. To put it short, the attention to detail on this guitar, sound and overall build is nothing short of spectacular.
Standing for Acoustic Resonance Enhancement. (ARE) is a technology used and developed by Yamaha specifically to reform wood. This is done by insane attention to detail by means of controlling temperature, humidity and even atmospheric pressure. This allows the tone woods to be manipulated on a molecular level to be as close to 'acoustically perfect' as humanly possible.
New Designed Bracing Pattern
A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L Series’ characteristic bright tone while enhancing low-end tone.
High Comfortable Traditional Neck Profile
A re-evaluation of string spacing, string height, fingerboard binding, and neck taper led to a new neck shape that better fits today’s raditional players. The new design offers stable grip and smooth playability over the full length of the neck.
The 5-ply neck of mahogany and rosewood designed with a volute at the headstock plus a double action adjustable rod creates a neck with excellent strength and stability.
This traditional Yamaha body style is known for its rich volume, a wide dynamic range, and excellent tonal balance. Beautiful, transparent tone is the result of a design that has been refined by artists around the globe.
Lacquer finish is carefully applied in multiple layers using a skilled technique. This approach results in a finish that does not inhibit the wood’s ability to vibrate delivering outstanding response and rich tone. Specially formulated to bring the best in tone, this lacquer (nitrocellulose lacquer) is used on the L56 and L36 lines.
