    I’ve played the guitar all of my life and have several Yamaha classical guitars. These are the only nylon-string guitars that are I will buy and that are worth buying.

    Yamaha classical guitars are the best inexpensive high quality classical guitars that you can hold. I’ve bought several other brands of classical guitars in the past but always end up selling them. I always keep the Yamahas.

    If you research classical guitars on the Internet, you will find that Yamaha brand is the best classical guitar that you can buy for the money. They are not hand crafted like the more expensive brands but who cares? They are made by a computer controlled machine to exact tolerances. They play just as fantastic as one made by a craftsman. Sure there are more expensive classical guitars out there but why pay more for same thing that you can buy cheaper? Especially when it is simple to play and sounds fantastic.

    This review is from: Yamaha C40 Classical Guitar Package (Electronics)

    After tender recently, I learned my Fender classical guitar to be cracked in transit. It by no means would stay in tune and I sweet much stopped playing guitar altogether after the disappointment, even after being a lifetime guitar player.

    Scanning through Amazon.com the other day, I happened to come across this Yamaha C40 classical guitar and saw that it was on a really fantastic sale: $144.95, ya can’t beat that! After contacting my wife (i.e. the boss :) ), I was surprised to hear her say that she had missed hearing me play and sing. I ordered the guitar Wednesday afternoon and BOOM! Friday evening it was sitting on my front porch.

    Upon seeing the “box” standing there… I started to feel dread….thinking I’ve seen these same types of boxes with “STUDENT READY” or “NEWBIE FRIENDLY” written on the side at Walmart or Sam’s Club. Like a kid, I immediately took it surrounded by and started opening the box, with my wife being as excited (skeptical?) as me. I hadn’t realized that the guitar came wth a soft cased gig bag, and we started ooooing and ahhhing.. you would have thought it was Christmas morning. Opening the gig bag, the guitar was tightly protected by a thin sheet of foam packing. As I started to take this sheet away, we started to catch glimpses of the wooden body and neck of the guitar. Man, what a beaut! Strings were already installed so there was no excuse to delay.. so I immediately started tuning her up! My wife had been rummaging through the gig bag and said that there was an electronic tuner and a DVD in the case. The tuner even had batteries already! Way to go, Yamaha/Amazon! I got low E and in just a few minutes (new strings, ya know) I was playing some of my ancient favorites…The Trees by Rush, any person?… my fingers were a bit rusty, but this guitar still sounded gorgeous. I’ve by no means owned a Yamaha classical before… always been a Fender and Gibson electric man, but just WOW! I’ve often played different classical guitars in music stores, but I would place this Yamaha up against any of those $2,000 models. It is a gorgeous guitar, the tone and sustain are incredible. With the gig bag, electronic tuner, and DVD (not sure what’s on there, haven’t watched it yet) included this is a no brainer. If you are on the fence about buying this gem, come on over to this side. I guarantee the grass IS greener! Oh, one more thing, your wife won’t yell at you for buying it either! (your mileage may vary ;) )

    This review is from: Yamaha C40 Classical Guitar Package (Electronics)

    I currently own 4 guitars – a Fender Stratocaster electric, a Rascal Dreadnaught, a Fender GD0 200 acoustic, and a Yamaha C40 classical acoustic.

    This Yamaha was the first guitar I owned, 8 years ago, so I force be biased. But it is a gorgeous classical guitar, with the standard 3 metal string and 3 nylons. Since it is a classical, it has a wider fretboard than other acoustics or electrics, which is fantastic if you are just culture and still are clumsily sad neighboring strings with your left hand and making buzzing noises.

    After about a year of use, the strings started to resonate differently so I altered them, but that was due to wear and tear, not any defect in the strings.

    This guitar is very high quality and 8 years later is as excellent as new. The pegs continue to hold the strings in tune, the rich tone is still the same. I highly recommend it and am deeply satisfied with mine. It is fantastic for a starter guitar but also for any veteran guitarist who wants to add a classical to their pool.
