Yamaha is proud to unveil the new Acoustic Guitar Series, the TransAcoustic Guitars LL-TA & LS-TA. Based on Yamaha’s L-series these guitars are not just new Yamaha Acoustics, but a completely revolutionary new Acoustic Guitar concept.

Playing guitar in a great sounding room is the most inspiring playing experience imaginable – far more enjoyable than in a dry-sounding room like a lounge or office.

Yamaha’s TransAcoustic Guitar recreates the incredible experience of playing in a rich, live room without needing any external amplification or effects – just the guitar itself.

Whether you’re practicing, writing, recording or just playing for fun, the TransAcoustic Guitar will make you play better, longer and with more creativity.

Once you’ve experienced it, you’ll never want to play another acoustic guitar again.


An actuator is installed on the inner surface of the guitar back vibrates in response to the vibrations of the strings. The vibrations of the actuator are then conveyed to the body of the guitar and to the air in and around the guitar body, generating authentic reverb and chorus sounds from inside the body.

Simple controls

Three simple knobs let you adjust the degree of effect applied and the line-out volume level. Additionally, keeping the controls small minimizes the area of the holes in the body material, reducing acoustic sound loss.

New battery box

Battery box integrated into the end-pin jack. This requires fewer holes in the body, thus reducing acoustic sound loss. Connect the cable from the jack to a PA or amp to use as an Electro-Acoustic Guitar.

Designed to provide superb acoustic guitar sound

The body is an all-solid guitar based on the L-series (LL16ARE, LS16ARE). A modified non-scalloped bracing design enhances the low end with retaining the bright tone. Treating the tops with Yamaha’s exclusive A.R.E. process gives the instrument a rich, vintage quality tone.
