beautiful, rich tone, polished exterior finish, long lasting quality
on February 5, 2009
I currently own 4 guitars - a Fender Stratocaster electric, a Rogue 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 might be biased. But it is a beautiful 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 great if you are just learning and still are clumsily touching neighboring strings with your left hand and making buzzing noises.
After about a year of use, the strings began to resonate differently so I changed 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 good 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 great for a starter guitar but also for any veteran guitarist who wants to add a classical to their collection.
