Yamaha LJ16BC overview

  • 1Description

The brown sunburst LJ16BC Billy Corgan Signature Series Medium Jumbo Acoustic Guitar from Yamaha features a solid Engelmann spruce top, rosewood back and sides, a 5-ply neck, and an SRT Piezo pickup passive system. It is well suited for solo performance or playing with a full band.

A few sonic changes were made during the design of this instrument at Mr. Corgan's request—a slight emphasis on the upper-mid harmonic frequencies creating a better listening experience for the audience, and a bit more detailing in the low-mid range, which helps round out the balance and complements of his playing style. Other personalized Billy touches are brass bridge pins, TUSQ nut and saddle, open-gear chrome tuners, and a unique Zero made into the head stock logo.

Brass Bridge Pins
Billy noticed that adding brass bridge pins to his Yamaha L-Series acoustics added upper-mid harmonics, which are frequencies that a live audience can feel and hear for a better experience. The low-mid's also become more balanced. Adding this feature was essential to him for his signature acoustic guitar.
Zero Logo on the Headstock
The zero logo has stayed with Billy Corgan over the years and is added to the headstock of the guitar as a personal touch.
High Comfortable Traditional Neck Profile
A reevaluation of string spacing, string height, fingerboard binding, and neck taper led to a new neck shape that better fits today's traditional players. This design offers stable grip and smooth playability over the full length of the neck.
SRT Zero Impact Passive Pickups
The SRT Zero Impact passive pickup system is a passive type pickup configuration designed to minimize the pickup's impact on the tone and traditional appearance of the instrument. It utilizes individual piezoelectric elements for each string to faithfully reproduce the dynamic sound of the L Series and give the instrument outstanding presence when playing in a band.
Updated Bracing Pattern
A modified non-scalloped bracing design retains the L series' characteristic bright tone while enhancing low-end tone.
5-Ply Necks
The guitars 5-ply neck design is constructed of rosewood and mahogany plies. The design integrates the neck, head, and body into a single unit creating a powerful, rich sound. This approach also creates a strong, stable neck that resists twisting and warping.
LJ Body
The LJ body shape is designed to provide guitarists with a comfortable fit when seated. While volume output is a little less than the LL, the LJ offers a wide dynamic range, a low-end with strong presence, and a crisp tone that accommodates a wide range of playing styles from lead to strumming.
