Excellent classical guitar
LMM, 30.07.2013
Yamaha have done it again! An incredibly budget-priced guitar with an outstanding build quality and tone.

The black gloss design is very elegant and makes the guitar look quite expensive. The fingerboard is wide which makes playing individual strings much easier - the only issue is that smaller hands might find it slightly difficult to work their way around the fretboard and a standard acoustic capo is unlikely to be large enough to fit here (even the G7 series).

The sound is a delight, as evidenced from Thomann's excellent sound samples. As with all of my new instruments, I intend to quickly restring with some premium strings (as you never know how long the strings were on the instrument in the factory or warehouse!) I have purchased D'Addario Pro Arte strings to try out and may update this review once any effects of this change have been observed.


If you are looking for a classical guitar <£200, you'd be hard pressed to beat this. A wonderful sounding instrument and a joy to play. Very highly recommended!

pros - extremely handy, warm sound, easy maintenance.
cons - struggles to cope with sophisticated sounds, classical music or jazz.
Where are the dots on the fingerboard? :)

Excellent guitar for beginners !
lorco, 18.04.2017
Have been playing the electric guitar for almost ten years now and I started to get interested in classical music not so long ago so I decided to pick this guitar up.
This is a very solid guitar even without giving it's low price into consideration , a very warm and clear tone , and the aesthetic is pretty much flawless. Everything arrived in the estimated time .
All in all a great guitar for beginners or experienced players who just wanna go for something new and not so expensive.

Super Guitar & Great Value For Money
R-i-c-h-a-r-d, 11.06.2017
I have a Martyn guitar I love but I've always wanted a nylon string guitar. I've never had one so I did a little homework. I didn't want to spend a fortune but at the same time I didn't want to throw ¤130 down the drain on an unplayable, terrible sounding guitar. The Yamaha C40 exceeded my expectations. It sounds wonderful and is a great addition if you only have a steel string or electric. I think it looks great in black too!
