I bought it last night from a local Kijiji seller. Great deal IMO!

I am a total pain to shop for, so Mrs. Greco has decided to get this guitar as a gift for my birthday (in June) in preference to going to the liquor store to buy wine for me.

Form the internet:

Yamaha LS6M Acoustic-electric Guitar Features:
  • Innovative guitar design gives you an amazing-playing and sounding instrument
  • Smaller medium jumbo body size is amazingly comfortable and perfect for fingerpicking
  • Hand-selected solid Engelmann spruce top and mahogany back and sides deliver rich tone and projection
  • A.R.E. process molecularly ages the wood to match guitars that have been played for years
  • 5-ply mahogany/rosewood neck has been redesigned for today's guitar player
  • Updated non-scalloped bracing pattern delivers a fuller low end
  • Passive SRT Zero Impact pickup uses individual piezo elements for each string

Mrs. Greco is now panicking and has asked me to inform all of my friends in the forum that she is not "wealthy" enough to buy several more guitars...just in case others thought it might be worth asking.

Congrats greco. I looked up what that A.R.E treatment is and the description sounds like its torrefication. Is that acurate Greco?

That's a super guitar greco. You know I'm a big fan of the triple forks, and the L series especially. Hat's off to the Mrs., and enjoy.

I don't know what to congratulate you more on
1. having B day
2. getting wonderful B day present THREE months before
3. having wonderful wife?

Probably number 3 is the most important!

Way to go my friend!
I'm sure you gave mrs greco a big hug for this (and then some;)).
I'm looking forward to trying it out the next time I visit.
