The Yamaha LS26 is an outstanding musical instrument, hand made and utilizing exceptional traditional Guitar manufacturing techniques coupled with modern new innovations. The back and sides of this instrument are made of Rosewood and use a new non-scalloped bracing design to attach to the solid Engelmann spruce top which has been treated using Yamaha's original wood reforming technology (ARE). The Grand Auditorium sized body of the LS series gives the guitar an incredibly detailed and articulate tone which is ideal for finger-style, recording or any application where the extra dynamics of the smaller body can shine through.
Most acoustical guitars worldwide have a spruce top which has lightweight yet extremely stiff properties. It project mid-range tones better than, practically, any other wood which is very important in the absence of an electric pickup. The spruce wood top has a high velocity of sound, resonant open mid-range, high frequency attack and good low end breadth. The LS26 top has been produced using Yamaha's original ARE (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) technology which uses precision controlled humidity and temperature to manipulate the molecular properties of the wood to produce the characteristics of instruments that have been played for years. Instruments made with woods processed this way produce a tonal richness that is equivalent to having a brand new vintage instrument.
The LS26 has a Mahogany fretboard and laminated neck which has been modified to incorporate a 5-ply vintage 'V' profile and an enlarged neck block, as opposed to the LS6 and LS16 models, 3 ply design. This design creates a neck that is exceptionally strong with more overall mass than it's predecessors to deliver greater tone from the instrument. The smooth lines and edges keep the playing surface unencumbered and is great for those players who prefer low string height. The Mahogany and Ebony help to dampen the high-end ranges of the sound to produce fuller and more gutsy wooden tones.
Overall the Yamaha LS26 boasts a number of unique player-focused construction features which produce an instrument with incredible strength, outstanding comfort and fabulous tone. Improved stability and tonal sustain from the enlarged neck block, enhanced low-frequency response from the effective transmission of vibrations from the spruce top via the new bracing design and the pre-aged tone of the Guitar due to Yamaha's exclusive ARE wood treatment enable this instrument to have a wide dynamic response and a robust, meaty tone.

Hello, I have been playing guitar since 2011. I review guitar as well as other music items. What you should buy for your instrument.
We are a team of musical instruments lovers. We love to play with these.
Like string instruments, wooden instruments, or you can say electrical.
Who are in my team? I play Acoustic and Classical guitar. Sam plays an electric guitar. Watson plays Bass. Pretty plays the drum. And the Piano is played by gibbon. And in a week two new players will join our team.
All are in so good in their field. That’s why all the tips and tricks are written after their guidelines.
One day while playing guitar with my friends. This idea was explored. One of my friends told me why don’t we make a site and share our experience.
