It is widely known that Yamaha’s expert luthiers are dedicated to meticulous craftsmanship, and the Yamaha LS56 Custom ARE Concert is a prime example of just that. Flaunting the timeless tonewood combination of Engelmann Spruce and Indian Rosewood, the flagship LS56 Custom seamlessly blends rich low end with clear highs and midrange. The Engelmann Spruce top receives Yamaha’s innovative ARE (Acoustic Resonance Enhancement) treatment, which through the manipulation of atmospheric pressure, temperature, and humidity, alters the molecular properties of the wood to mimic those of a guitar that has naturally aged through time and rigorous playing. This process, paired with the modified non-scalloped bracing, ebony bridge and fingerboard, 5-ply Mahogany/Rosewood neck, and 1 11/16” nut width, creates a comfortable and responsive playing experience with an extremely open, up front, and balanced tone. The Yamaha LS56 Custom ARE Concert is sure to turn heads with its ornate abalone and maple appointments, and is equally at home in the hands of strummers, pickers, and fingerstyle players alike.
