Yamaha CGS103A Classical Guitar

Classical Guitar

Many children start playing the guitar between the ages of eight and ten. And it was precisely this group that Yamaha was considering when designing the CGS103. With its smaller neck and body dimensions, this instrument lies exactly between a ½ and a full-size guitar and offers perfect comfort when playing, therefore promoting pleasant and productive learning.

Thanks to its spruce top and its bottom and sides made of nato wood - which is similar to mahogany and also often used for significantly more expensive models - the sound of the guitar is balanced and dynamic. The ideal complement to this is embodied by the one-piece, high-quality rosewood fretboard and a solid rosewood bridge.

Good basis for the young beginner
Christian148, 21.04.2016
For my 8-year-old son I have a good beginner guitar suitable for its body size. The guitar should above all be a good playability and a good tone offer and not too expensive, if
Guitar should not be the right thing to do.

For many years I have been playing guitar myself and I have always had good experiences with Yamaha acoustic guitars. So much of my decision this time on a Yamaha and indeed on the CGS103.

Overall, I am very satisfied with the purchase of the guitar. The sound and the playability is in relation to the price really very good. My son is also looking forward to a guitar that is really fun from the beginning and is a serious instrument.
