A modest budget no longer means putting up with a second-rate instrument, as the C40 ably demonstrates. Spruce tops, mahogany-like meranti backs and sides and real rosewood fingerboards and bridges ensure that this guitar is blessed with a quality of tone and playability that belies its affordable price tags. The C40 comes with chrome tuners
Yamaha classical guitars are the result of three decades of accumulated knowledge and expertise in building nylon-strung instruments. The use of quality materials throughout and the dedication of the company’s skilled craftsmen mean guitars that, without exception, offer outstanding performance at affordable prices.
CG Concert Series models, for example, with their lighter-in-weight construction and thinner-coat finishes, are universally praised for their mature, richly responsive sounds and easy playability. And for beginners young and not so young, there’s a superb selection of entry-level and inexpensive School instruments to choose from, from half-size upwards. Whichever, the mark of Yamaha quality always shines through.
