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.

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.



Decent guitar. You get what you pay for.


My girlfriend mentioned wanting to learn, so I got her this and lessons. It's a good guitar for learning on, but I don't think it's worth it when you can get used baby taylors for $50 more. It's got a great action a nice sound, but it doesn't stay in tune very well and has a cheaper make up. I don't regret it by any means, but I wouldn't purchase again.



Fantastic Sound


Purchased for my 10 year old just starting guitar lessons. Perfect size for him and sounds like a full size. great purchase!

Great entry level nylon string acoustic


Nylon stringed acoustics have become quite the popular for beginners recently and for anyone starting out the CGS102AII model is a great starter one. Nice and light weight and the 3/4 body shape makes it sit comfortably on any child's lap. Great sound for the price you are paying.

Great classical guitar for students and beginners!


Yamaha consistently makes quality guitars at bargain prices and this one is no different. It's a perfect choice for students and beginners, as the neck is easy to play and it's got a nice warm tone. The CGS also has a classic design and looks great, I'd highly recommend it.

Comfortable Affordability!


Whether your a child, or just a smaller adult, this 3/4 Classical guitar allows for comfort without sacrificing tone or instrument quality. The relatively 'thinner' body, at 4" make this a great instrument for anyone needing an instrument they feel they can 'get around'. The rosewood fingerboard also feels super easy to move around on and looks sharp too!
