New Yamaha LL16RD A.R.E., Natural, with Deluxe Features & Hard Case, Free Shipping

The LL16RD – D for “Deluxe” – features Yamaha’s original jumbo body constructed with a solid Englemann spruce top that has been treated with Yamaha’s A.R.E. technology, and solid rosewood back and sides. Acoustic Resonance Enhancement (A.R.E.) is an original wood-reforming technology developed by Yamaha that controls temperature, humidity and atmospheric pressure, allowing the molecular properties of the wood to be similar to the molecular characteristics of woods in instruments that have been played for years. This guitar has abalone binding, die-cast gold tuners, and a SRT Zero Impact passive piezo pickup. It is a beauty, and it comes with a hard case.

Here are more specs from the Yamaha website:
