The Yamaha CG172SF is designed to emphasize tone and playbility with its lower action and superb craftsmanship, all at an affordable price. Order yours from Sam Ash direct today.

The Yamaha CG172SF produces the kind of warm and clear tone that you’d expect from a much more expensive guitar, and will meet the demand of today’s flamenco or classical players. The solid European spruce top produces a warm, punchy tone that projects extremely well. The top is protected by 2 thin clear “tap plates”, also known as a “golpeador”, which sits around both sides of the soundhole. The back and sides are constructed from cypress, a traditional tonewood for flamenco guitars. The neck of the Yamaha CG172SF is carved from nato wood and sports a rosewood fingerboard with the low action that flamenco players look for. Case not included.

    Comments about Yamaha CG172SF Nylon String Acoustic Guitar:

    Just received the 172sf a few days ago and am very happy with it. I have played a gibson ES330 for years, and was worried about the much wider neck and longer scale length on the flamenco, but I find it very playable. The nylon string tension is much lower than a steel strung, and this really helps. It is well constructed, and the action is very good for a classical guitar. It is very light, 2-3 lbs.
