    C’mon man, standard tuning is the way to go for sound demos! Sheesh.

    Hmmm, not sure what the perfect strings would be for you. It’s really a matter of personal preference. It sounds like you’re doing the right thing in experimenting with different types and brands of strings. Thanks for watching!

    Oh yes, you can definitely see the wood grain of the LL6′s solid Engleman spruce top. Feel free to contact me with any other questions or concerns.

    Can you see the wood ‘grain’ i think its called because the top looks kind of flat?

    @alga1309 When you say original Yamaha strings, do you mean the strings that came on the guitar when you bought it? If you’ve had the guitar a long time and have never changed the strings, that’s probably the reason your guitar has poor low-end definition and lifeless tone. Strings become dirty and start to degrade over time, which leads to poor vibrations; if you change your strings and let them settle (8-10 hours), I think you’ll notice a vast improvement in tone and you probably won’t need t

    Sounds good, but definitely tuned down below standard

    Thanks for your interest. The LL6 comes from the factory with light gauge coated strings. Probably equivilent to a D’Addario EXP11 set. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions or concerns.

    Gorgeous guitar, this was my first acoustic 5 years ago. What strings are you using out of interest?

    Hello Max I have an LL6 and like it but: 1- would like it to have more definition on the low strings 2- more open highs 3 – Breath more, fuller sound. Since i`m about to upgrade it I have some questions for you:
    - Have you tried the Oport (planet waves)?? What effect will make on this guitar??
    - I want to put a TUQ saddle, would it benefit this guitar?
    - Changing the original yamaha strings to Elixir .013 will help acomplish some of my goals??
    Thanks in advance. Alberto Garcia Caracas Venezuela

    Great review, great guitar! Any chance you guys can make a review of Yamaha LL16?

    The fretboard size and width would be about the same as an FG730S…no real difference there. You might want to consider the LS6 with a smaller concert body. The LS6 fretboard will be the same size as the LL6, but you may find the smaller body to be a little more comfortable. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions or concerns.

    Would you say this guitar is good for people with smaller hands? Meaning is the fret board and chording harder than a FG 730.

    Hi,
    Thanks for your interest in Kraft Music and the Yamaha LL6. We do plan on producing an LL16 video, but I’m not sure when we will finish it. I can tell you that the LL16 features solid wood for the back/sides of the instrument, which provides a noticeable improvement in tone. Feel free to contact me with any other questions or concerns.

    will you folks ever demo an LL16 to compare between recordings?

    Yes, I find the included case to be very sturdy. It’s not like a soft gig bag, but more of a rigid foam case. Very lightweight and very protective. Thanks for watching!

    Unlike yamaha acoustics most I have seen Taylor, Martin, SantaCruz , Gibson.I saw the lows being dull, no response………maybe Yamaha does a superb job on the set up…………that is what makes a guitar be a guitar!

    what would the difference be if the back and side were mahagony instead of rosewood……? I am looking for a LL36 but nowhere to be found………and buying it without trying, makes no sense so it appears I might go ahead and try to find an old Cj818 or 838……………………by the way that guitar sounds really good and Yamaha builds better guitars than Taylor. Martin, Santa Cruz etc etc…….including Gibson acoustics……

    Hi, which strings do you use? Are these the normal yamaha strings?
    Thanks for answering

    By chance, do any of the Yamahas have any pretty frills on them (Abalone rosette, back purfling). I think the Yamahas are the way to get me a Martin-like guitar at a lower cost. Thanks.

    Hi,
    Thanks for watching. The LL6 and LL16 are both fantastic hand-crafted instruments. The LL16 features all-solid back and side construction and sounds fuller as a result. We don’t have an in-house guitar tech for setups, but 99% of Yamaha instruments come perfectly setup from the factory. That is part of the reason we love Yamaha acoustic instruments. They are so consistently high quality.

    I am looking at buying this guitar or the ll16. Is the ll16 worth the extra money? Do you set the guitars up and inspect them before you ship them? Thanks.
