One noticeable new guitar at this year's 2004 Winter NAMM Show was the hand-made Yamaha "L" acoustic. Hand-built to exacting standards at Yamaha's facility in Japan, each model has an understated beauty and uniquely rich, distinctive acoustic sound. The Lotus Series will be released throughout 2004, and features 15 models in four categories from entry to luxury level. Simple and elegant styling features include premium Engelmann spruce tops, rosewood back and side body construction, and the finest inlays, tuners and bindings. Each model also features Yamaha's original body style, and full 651 mm scale.
Construction innovations include Yamaha's exclusive non-scalloped 90-degree X-bracing for increased resonance and a more focused midrange. The SQ Frame side bracing enhances low and low-mid response by expanding string energy out to include the back and sides of the body.
Yamaha's proprietary NC neck block coupling of the neck and body increases sustain, power and projection. The necks of "L" Series combine traditional mahogany with exotic padauk for a clear, natural, round tone and superior neck rigidity.
