      A Fantastic beginning guitar for a younger player or someone that just wants a great sound in a compact size. This classical guitar is as easy on your hands as it is on your budget.

      Perfect for students. Yamaha makes great guitars and this is no exception. Sounds like a much more expensive guitar!

          Great starter guitar. Light laquer finish that doesn't comprimise the wood's ability to hold a tone. Unbeatable price for the quality. I am a reviewer for Sam Ash Cleveland.

            If you're looking into picking up a classical guitar this might be your best choice. The C40II is easy to play for any player. The bottom line is the C40II sounds good and plays good. If you're not ready to invest quite as much money into your guitar this is a great choice.

                  Comments about Yamaha C40II Nylon String Acoustic Guitar:

                  Yamaha rarely ever disapoints, such as the nature of a great brand. The playability is very solid as well as a good tone, i'd recommend it anyone just starting out because it gives you the basic feel of a proper classical guitar. It sounds good, plays good, the neck is comfortable and for the price, it's just a great deal. Probably will pick one of these up for myself.

                    Yamaha always makes a quality product at a great price and this is no exception! The C40II is a fantastic guitar and perfect for the beginning and intermediate player. This guitar can play at a low volume but can also project just as well. Great instrument and an even better price!

                    Comments about Yamaha C40II Nylon String Acoustic Guitar:

                    If you're interested in learning classical guitar, but don't want to invest too much right away, this is a great choice. For the price the value really is great, and to get to buy a classical guitar for this price is insane! The playability on this is really nice too, I love the neck. Only real complaint is that I wish it had a bit more low end to it, though that's hard to get with the cheaper models.

                      When going for a classical to see if that is the sound/style you want, this is the guitar for you. Playing classical is a whole different world when compared to standard acoustic or electric guitars. And if you are going to go with ANY brand, it should be Yamaha. They are the world's #1 instrument manufacturer and they love to show it off. There is no better classical under $200 than this one here.

                        This Yamaha is an excellent entry level guitar. If you are a beginner this is the classical model you should highly consider. This model has a warm tone and is very inviting to play.
