Yamaha LJX6C Solid Top Jumbo Acoustic, Natural
Yamaha LJX6C guitar in natural solid spruce top, rosewood back & sides with cutaway and a 2 way/mic & Piezo with pre-amp system.
The Yamaha LJX6C acoustic guitar features choice materials and Yamahas unique ability to blend traditional skills with advanced manufacturing techniques delivering an instrument of exceptional quality at a price that s hard to beat.
With exquisite construction and cosmetics, the Jumbo style LJX6C has a tight waist and a deeper body, the LJ shape is perfect for the modern player offering strong mid-range and a controlled yet assertive tone. The Venetian cutaway offers access to the upper frets while adding beauty.
The Jumbo/auditorium-sized LJX6C electro acoustic guitar has an even-grained solid Engelmann spruce top. Yamaha uses Engelmann spruce (Canada) for the LJX6C top because it naturally suits the role for top woods better than any other. It is a light wood that is easy to work and enables a good tone response with a wide harmonic range.
The LJX6C acoustic electric has rich, dark laminated rosewood back and sides which disperses resonance evenly and effortlessly. Yamaha has improved the conventional `C` neck block design by enlarging the surface area that is in contact with the top of the guitar. The block securely meets the underside of the top adding a real depth to the tone of the instrument. The 3-ply ebony fingerboard and non-scalloped X-bracing design maps out the vibration patterns of the guitar delivering a tone that is full, balanced and well focused bringing out the natural harmony in the guitar’s tone woods.
The electronic pickup system in this acoustic electric is the Yamaha System 45 two-way system. Two-way because there is a piezo pickup under the bridge and a condenser microphone inside the body, mounted on a gooseneck so you can reach into the sound-hole to adjust its angle. The preamp includes controls for volume, microphone level, bass, mid and treble, with a sliding mid-band control (80Hz to 10kHz). A phase switch for the microphone is also provided, and a small LED acts as the battery power indicator. A rubber sound-hole cover is provided to prevent feedback when you employ the condenser at full gain.
This handcrafted acoustic electric guitar from Yamaha is an exceptional buy; quality build and materials at a very modest price. With exquisite construction and cosmetics, this beautifully handcrafted acoustic guitar offers a truly wonderful sound combined with great playability. These guitars are produced in Yamaha’s factory in Taiwan giving a price advantage over rival brands with the same features. Yamaha deserve the same respect given to Taylor and Martin and deliver consistent high quality instruments.
