Yamaha LL 11e acoustic

What's Hot
A friend very kindly has loaned me the above guitar.
I would like to find out a bit more info about the guitar
It certainly is one of the nicest acoustics I have played.
If she ever asked for it back I would probably try and get my own.
Any info gratefully  received.
Thanks

  • Have tried that but nothing recent.
    Last review I found was 2004!

    I don't recognise that model number as a current one so that might be the most recent you're gonna get

    The LL11 was a handbuilt instrument made to a very good spec and favoured by Bert Jansch.
    Don`t know what the e signifies tho`.
    Hth.

  • hey!

    I have a LL11 (no E, although I had a Lr Baggs Anthem fitted) - it's a great mid priced guitar if you can get hold of one.

    They were discontinued and replaced with the ll6 and ll16 guitars but they changed the bracing on those models to a striaght braced rather than the scalloped bracing on the 11.

    Mine is made in indonesia but I've heard that some were japanese made (although I've not seen a japanese made one) - the back and sides are supposed to be laminated rosewood but, again, I've heard rumours that some are all solid woods - I'm not sure about mine as the grain seems to be very well matched inside and out but I'm not 100% it's solid...

    The e versions have Yamahas own pickup system in them which is a transducer and a mic, but you need the external preamp for the mic to work - the preamp is a box that's called 'acousticy' or something like that.

    I bought mine because I'm a massive Bert Jansch fan and I wanted one mainly because of that, but I also wanted a good guitar that I could use for the odd gig at festivals or places where i wouldn't want to take my Martin or Collings - it's a really nice playing and sounding guitar in it's own right and was a bargain for the £500 I got it for...

    The equivalent guitar now would be something like the LL6 ARE or LL16 ARE - I think they've gone back to scalloped bracing and put a wider nut on those guitars and they're also very good.
