Looks like an LL16. I had a relatively new LLX6A that was dropped and had a finish crack on the top and the laminate back buckled and cracked pretty good. These guitars have a poly finish. Very thick. The luthier fixed mine for $200. He doesn’t work with poly, so he glued down the poly part on the top and did a French polish finish in nitro. You can still see the lines in the top (finish) but it's structurally sound.

For that one, I guess a couple hundred minimum based on my experience. And even though the LL16 is a "custom shop" model, the Deluxe model retailed at $999 so I'm not sure it's worth it to fix. I don't blame you for sending it back.

If it was an LL26 or 36, what a shame...
As my username suggests, huge fan of Yamaha products. Own many acoustic-electric models from 2009-present and a couple electric. Lots of PA too.
