This is a great guitar for young kids to learn with. It features downsized playability, great tone, and sharp looks. The Yamaha CGS103AII ¾ is perfect for the individual child or classroom that needs a learner guitar.

Downsized Playability
Besides being highly affordable, this Yamaha guitar is really easy to play, for young students especially. This guitar is crafted into a ¾ scale version of traditional school guitars. Its body depth is 3.15"- 3.3" which won't feel too bulky for younger players. The fingerboard is 1.9", which is a reasonable width for kids to learn on. Best of all, it sports nylon strings, which aren't abrasive on the fingers and can be easily plucked or strummed by players of all ages.

Great Tone
The Yamaha CGS103AII has some nice sound too. The body of this guitar is crafted from Meranti wood, and topped with Sitka spruce. The combination allows for a sweet ring from the nylon strings, which afford a delicate tone themselves. The Nato neck capped by a rosewood fingerboard creates nice sound and an easy, smooth feel along players' finger tips.

Sharp Looks
Kids do appreciate a fun looking instrument and this Yamaha has got that covered. With a vibrantly colored Sitka spruce top, this guitar looks as fun as it plays. The darker rosewood fingerboard creates a nice contrast to the body, and reddish wooden headstock caps it all off. It might not contribute to the great tone, but the sharp look of the Yamaha CGS103AII will definitely contribute to the interest from students.

I bought it for my daughter to learn on but she's gotta get it away from me first... great tone for the price!



Great first guitar


It's a student line type guitar. That doesn't take away from it, it's just what it is. I would recommend this to anyone who wants to learn to play but isn't sure if it's gonna stick. The action is quite high, but that's an easy fix if you're not into it. It's only come out of tune for me once after the strings were done setting, but it was just barely flat by a Hz or two when that happened. Overall, it sounds amazing, especially for the price tag. Probably the best you can get for the money, 10/10 price quality ratio, would definitely buy again!





I am using the guitar for my new ASA classical guitar class.



I would buy this for students and reccommend/


3/4 size Acoustic Guitar. Pretty body good reaction.



Amazing guitar!


Awesome beginner guitar! Can't be a Nylon string Yamaha. Great price great quality instrument. If you're thinking of buying this for yourself to learn guitar, or for your child to learn guitar, look no further. :)



Rich tone and beautiful sound! Go Yamaha...


Well-constructed Yahama Classical guitar. Beautiful rich tone. Ergonomically comfortable for small adult female senior! Looking forward to bonding with this machine to arrange music and delight others! Good investment



Pretty, Pretty, Pretty Good


My only qualms is that there is a marker only on the 7th fret and I used nail polish to mark the other spots on the neck. Sound is good enough for the price, though I'm not an audiophile.



i would recommend this for anyone to enjoy


this is just what i needed in terms of size and ease of play. i haven't played in years and needed something physically easy and not too large to be handled. i'm 72 and feeling some joint wear and tear so light and handy is nice. the sound is beautiful and the action easy to deal with for old fingers. for the price the workman ship is a real surprise also. very happy!



Romulo was great!!!


Romulo was great!!! Thanks for a Memorable experience with my seven-year-old



Great for the younger beginners


Great guitar for the younger beginners. Good sounds and feel. As with any new guitar, it will need tuning right out of the box. Buy a tuning tool at the time of purchase. Sam Ash in Springfield, NJ / RT22 has a very helpful & knowledgeable staff (recommend David) and a great selection of products.
