Just look at that headstock. Gold tuners.



This is a Yamaha LS6. Just got it in today and have been playing it all afternoon. My fingers are sore.

I got it for $350ish off Musician's Friend, it goes for $500 new. So far, I'm really happy.

Engelmann spruce top, rosewood back and sides, mahogany neck, ebony fretboard. That's not something you see every day on a guitar at this price point. I love ebony fretboards. Smooth, smooth, smooth.

The neck is pretty slim, D-shape. I usually don't like acoustics as much as electrics, for one reason: the neck is usually much less comfortable. This guitar is an exception. It's really smooth, absolutely playable, and doesn't make your hand cramp up after long periods. This is a neck I'd be happy to have on an electric guitar.

The guitar sounds huge, and really responds to dynamics. It's also nice and articulate, and notes ring out well. Harmonics are great because they sort of float above the rest of the notes.

The guitar is great for finger picking or hard chord strumming. The stock strings are pretty good, and the guitar itself came mostly in tune, which is a testament to how well it was shipped. It came double-boxed.

Here's a picture of the back, which is just really beautiful:



A shot of the whole guitar:



I can put up clips, but I'm waiting on a new microphone cable. Recording with a 3ft mic cable sucks.

In all, I am super happy with this guitar, because it sounds way way better than my old acoustic.

It's really lovely to look at, but even lovelier to hear.

Yeah I can imagine, we have a lot of the Yamaha acoustic range at work, its always good fun trying to guess the value of the new models before checking.

We are usually out by a few hundred quid every time, Yamaha are just the best brand when it comes to sensibly priced acoustics.


I them.

Don't look now, but there's a Yamaha sitting on your sofa.

Congrats on the new guitar. NGD is always the best.

Those gold tuners are nuts man... they seem classy and not overdone, which is rare with gold things...

Happy NGD - No excuses on the recording though, get to work!

Not that I've ever seen something as pathetic as a 3ft XLR cable.

If you're just playing at home or with friends, do it dude. Chicks dig stacks! Crank out some Metallica and do a couple of single moms!

I ask many questions.

Not just acoustics, IMO. Yamaha is a great value in pretty much everything they make.

Yamaha stuff is always a safe bet. I am quite fond of their acoustics, esp for the price. As Tom said, for value for money it's hard to beat a Yamaha.
Doesn't matter if it's guitars, pianos or motorbikes - Yamaha stuff is always a good buy. Maybe not always the best but always good.

Very beautiful guitar! Congrats!
I love Yamaha stuff. Well made and great value. I've got a DTX 550 e-drum kit and an APX500II acoustic/electric guitar that I love. I sometimes wish they made cars, but I heard that they will only enter "personal entertainment" markets. (I quess they don't drive like me )
