Joachim8367, 10.05.2015
zunächst mal sollte man sich von der Yamaha-Info "Small Body" nicht verwirren lassen. Das Korpusvolumen der LS 16 ist durchaus mit einer "normalen" Dreadnought zu vergleichen, es ist definitiv keine Maton Mini, keine Parlor-Gitarre und sie ist auch größer als eine OO oder OOO. In meiner Sammlung ist nur der Korpus der 12-saitigen Schwester LL-16-12 tiefer, die LS 16 ist genau so tief wie z.B. eine Lakewood M32 oder eine Cole Clark FL-2AC. Auch "um die Hüften" ist die LS 16 nur unwesentlich schlanker als die Lakewood oder die Cole Clark.

Die Verarbeitung ist auf sehr hohem Niveau, ich hab nix zu meckern gefunden, die Lackierung ist sauber und dünn, im Gegenlicht sieht man noch die unterschiedlichen Maserungen der Fichtendecke und des Palisanderbodens/Zarge. Lediglich an der Stöckchenkappe ist ein bisschen viel Lack in die Kante zwischen Halsansatz und Binding gelaufen, da kann ich aber wirklich drüber hinweg sehen.
Der Hals ist 5-streifig aus Mahagoni mit Palisander aufgebaut, die Kopfplatte per "scarf joint" angesetzt (ok, irgendwo muss man sparen...). Durch die Laminatkonstruktion macht der Hals einen sehr stabilen Eindruck, ich denke Temperatur- und Feuchtigkeitsschwankungen haben da keine Chance...

Geliefert wird die Gitarre mit eher dünnen Saiten (ich schätze mal 11er) und einer sensationell tiefen Saitenlage. Ich mag's ein bisschen dicker und habe gleich auf 12er Elixir "umgespannt". Durch den höheren Saitenzug musste ich den Truss Rod etwas nachstellen, was aber mit dem mitgelieferten Inbus durch das Schalloch problemlos funktioniert und durch eine ausgezeichneten Bespielbarkeit belohnt wird.

Was auffällt: die Gitarre ist sehr leicht, die Bracings im Inneren sind sauber verarbeitet, alle "scalloped" und beim Abklopfen resonieren Decke und Boden sehr schön. Beim ersten Anspielen stellte ich fest, dass der Ton sofort "da" ist, die LS 16 spricht exzellent an, lässt sich sehr dynamisch spielen und ist richtig laut wenn's nötig wird. Ob das leichte Ansprechen mit der ARE-Behandlung der Decke zu tun hat kann ich nicht sagen, allerdings spricht dafür, dass die 12-String Schwester, die sich ebenfalls in meiner Sammlung befindet ähnlich verhält.

Das eingebaute Tonabnehmersystem ist im besten Sinne des Wortes unauffällig. über einen AER Compact 60 erklingt ein runder, sauberer Akustiksound, der sich mit dem EQ gut regeln und mit etwas Hall leicht veredeln lässt.

Stilistisch ist die LS 16 eher im Strumming und im Picking mit dem Plektrum zu Hause, für Fingerstyle-Sachen ist zumindest für meine dicken Finger der Hals etwas zu schmal. Dafür passt das Halsprofil sehr gut und die matte Lackierung erhöht die Spielfreude gleich noch mal.

Die LS 16 kommt in einem sehr robusten und gut gepolsterten Gig-Bag, das keine Sehnsucht nach einem Koffer aufkommen lässt. Durch die Rucksacktragegurte lässt sich die Gitarre im Gig-Bag gut transportieren, selbst wenn man noch anderes Gepäck dabei hat. Ich denke die LS 16 wird meine bevorzugte Reisegitarre!
