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.

Bought this guitar for my daughter who started her guitar lessons. Compared the sound with other low priced guitars, I think this is the best guitar to start with and it will be for some coming years. Highly recommendable.

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.
