Yamaha C40

Classical Guitar

The C40 shows in spectacular fashion that a tight budget doesn't have to be synonymous with settling for a second-choice guitar. The meranti (similar to mahogany) bottom and sides and the real rosewood fretboard and bridge are characteristics that not only lend the C40 a great sound, but also ensure an excellent playability and response. The precise chrome-plated machine heads guarantee consistently good tuning.

Yamaha C-40 guitar.

Frank169, 15.02.2016
This guitar is what it is, a very good starter student guitar and very good value for money. The built quality is adequate but not up to Yamaha usual quality, again I would point that @ 111eu it is very good value for money.

What is this?
Using our Live Video Consulting service, you can visit our departments live and have us demonstrate any piece of equipment you want to see. You are perfectly free to ask questions of our representatives or give them instructions. And don't worry: we can hear, but not see you.
How can I use it?
Live Video Consulting is available for selected products. Whenever a sales representative is available, an icon which allows you to make us of the service will appear on the product page
How does that work?
You require a PC or Mac with a microphone and an up-to-date browser. It's best to use the current version of either Chrome or Firefox. Before initiating the connection, your browser will ask your permission to access your microphone.
Possible problems
We are still in the testing phase with this system, and our representatives are still finding out how to give you the best possible experience. Therefore, it may happen that we do not understand you (please speak clearly in either German or English only), that equipment is being tried out by other customers temporarily, or that there are problems with the connection. Please do not hesitate to give us feedback whenever anything like this happens, so that we may learn from this and improve our service.
