Yamaha classic guitar with a deep cedar top that both beginners and seasoned players will appreciate.

From Yamaha comes a beautiful classical acoustic guitar that's built with strength and design that both beginners and seasoned players can appreciate, and is offered at a price that anybody can afford.

The Yamaha CG162C classical guitar produces a soft sound ideal for finger-picking, or intimate chord progressions, thanks to its nylon strings and superior woods. The full-size classical guitar design features strong mid-range and lower-mids, with emphasis on balanced tone. The end result is a Yamaha guitar with lots of smooth, classical appeal, for a great price.

The solid cedar top produces clear balanced tone, with a soft voice. The ovangkol back and sides add a lively sparkle with lots of responsiveness. The nato neck complements these qualities and adds clarity and dynamics to a Yamaha guitar with lots of dimension. Adjust your attack and sustain for each note, and the Yamaha CG162C guitar responds accordingly.

Other features of the Yamaha guitar include rosewood bridge and fretboard, white pearloid peg tuners, and gold hardware for a classic-looking classical guitar. Built to the precise specifications of Yamaha's master craftsmen, the CG162C nylon-string guitar will continue to sound as good as the day you bought it. Make that day today and order now.

  • yamaha classical cg162c

    As reviewed by jwredguitar on 6/23/2011

    I have been looking to get into nylon for a while and never found one with as much depth as this guitar. Its easy to get a balanced sound and the lows can get as deeper and deeper. It is built very well no blems or visible glue and the ovangkol back and sides are beautiful. it definitely beats any other classical at the same price range

  • Awesome Intermediate Classical !!!

    As reviewed by Thomas Evans on 7/31/2013

    After trying out literally a dozen intermediate classical guitars in the $300 to $500 range, without a double the Yamaha CG 162 C was the best looking, most comfortable, best built, and played beautifully. I asked the GC Technician to replace the factory strings with Savarez Alliance R540 normal tensions. The sound was full, bright, and sustained. I could not be more pleased with my purchase and I actually feel that the CG 162 C sounded as good, if not better than the more expensive Yamahas CG 182 and 192. Thanks to Yamaha for a great product at a great price for this novice classical guitar student.
